McLaren is a producer of technically amazing automotive machinery. The 12C is great, the 650S is amazing, and the P1 is well on its way to become a legend of the hypercar realm. Still, there’s nothing that wild from McLaren, relatively speaking of course. Enter the 675LT, which is clearly the brash yet brilliant bright light of the bunch.
Imagine someone took a McLaren P1, stripped all of the battery bits and electric motors, and you’d very nearly have a 675. It’s certainly more closely related to that million-dollar machine than it is to the 650S, despite being several hundred thousand dollars less expensive.
If the current McLaren lineup were a group of your friends… the 570S would be the newcomer who has a family that comes from money, but he likes to party with those who don’t. The 650S is smart and knows it, and doesn’t really cut loose. The P1 is the all-star who’s good at everything. The 675LT though… that’s the one you want to party with, and then become best friends for life.
The 675LT is the fun one…
[Disclaimer: McLaren tossed us the keys to the 675LT and included a tank of fuel. I then proceeded to increase the value of my condo complex for a few days.]
