New McLaren 675LT iteration spied on the Nurburgring

Our spy photographers caught what seems to be a race car iteration of the McLaren 675LT. It is the second most powerful model in the McLaren line-up (behind the McLaren P1), before the new 720S showed up.

Sources believe that this prototype could be the outcome of McLaren trying to do justice to the ageing 675LT road car by transforming it into a race car. Let’s talk more about this version now. There is a speculation about this model turning out to be a GT3 version. In addition to the overall similarity with the 675LT, this race car also gets some unmistakeable track-oriented aerodynamic components like the numerous air dams on the fascia along with an aerodynamic bonnet, a roof-mounted scoop, and that gigantic rear wing.

Although McLaren is tight-lipped about this project, don’t we all expect this iteration to make more power than the 675LT? To give you an idea, the factory 675LT came with a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 motor that belted out 666bhp and 699Nm of torque. So, expect this one to be more aggressive by a fair margin. There has been no confirmation about when this model could hit the roads, so stay tuned to CarWale for the details.
