Every LT is engineered with absolute focus. To be faster. Lighter. Nimbler. To provide undiluted feedback and encourage you to push. To the edge and even further. The new McLaren 600LT Spider takes this formidable mix and intensifies it – heightening every sensation. Vivid. Raw. Visceral… Unforgettable.
The aggressive design language is LT to the last detail. The radical fixed aerodynamic package features a unique rear wing. The car is longer at both ends. And lower. The retractable hard top and tonneau storage area flow perfectly into the whole. The 600LT Spider does nothing by halves. And it shows. Among the muscular forms and sharp lines are elements that could only ever be McLaren. The dramatic rear buttresses and dihedral doors. The signature daytime running lights in the shape of the famous speedmark – now darkened and featuring a bespoke 600LT design. Roof up or down, the 600LT Spider has a sense of perfect balance. Everything is there for a purpose. Upholding the LT name in open-air style.
The 600LT Spider demands no compromises when it comes to primal performance. It takes 2.9 seconds to reach 62mph. Matching the 600LT Coupe exactly. It will sprint from 0-124mph (200kph). Before powering on to an incredible 201mph (324kph) top speed. At its heart lies enormous power. Propelled by a McLaren 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged V8, but with an extra 30PS and 20Nm of torque. The superfast Inertia Push gearshifts, developed on the 675LT, offer instant changes and an intoxicating sense of engagement. The only difference is just how close you can get to the sound and sensation of unbridled speed, the moment you lower the roof.
This is a car shaped by exhaustive wind tunnel testing and priceless experience. Many lessons were learned when developing the P1™, 675LT and the McLaren Senna… knowledge that has been applied relentlessly to the 600LT Spider. From the moment air meets the aggressive carbon fibre front splitter, the powerful aerodynamics are optimising its flow. By the time it’s slipped around the fixed rear wing and through the powerful new diffuser, the air has been managed, coerced and persuaded to work with the car. This creates big advantages. Aerodynamic efficiency, cooling and downforce all reap the benefits.
Every LT is defined by lightness. Anything that doesn’t contribute to raw performance and pin sharp handling is out. The team who created the 600LT Spider pushed weight saving to the very edge. And further. Building the 600LT Spider around the MonoCell II monocoque ‘tub’ means starting ultra-light. It has a best-in-class chassis weight of less than 75kg. Carbon fibre racing seats save a full 21kg. Our lightest ever forged alloy wheels with bespoke Pirelli P ZERO™ Trofeo R tyres cut a further 17kg. The team were ruthless in this pursuit. Even the glovebox and door pockets were removed. The result is the lightest car in its class. Or to put it another way: 0-124mph (200kph) in 8.4 seconds
