Open top supercar McLaren 600LT Spider accelerate to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds

McLaren Automotive has unveiled an open modification of the 600LT supercar Spider. The car will be released in limited edition – it is planned to be removed from the conveyor in 12 months. He will be the fifth Longtail-model: the F1 GTR LT, introduced in 1997, became the founder of the series.

The open supercar turned out to be only 50 kilograms heavier than the coupe, but 100 kilograms lighter than the 570S Spider. The car weighs 1297 kilograms. This result, however, can only be achieved by ordering the optional MSO Clubsport package, which costs 18.2 thousand pounds sterling. It consists of titanium wheel bolts and a variety of carbon elements, including carbon fiber seat frames.

The novelty has a three-section hardtop, which can be folded or raised at a speed of up to 40 kilometers per hour. Windshield with electric drive can be removed separately for the roof, so that, as they say in the company, when the top is raised, it is better to hear the sound of the motor.

The spider, which has kept the “vertical” release, is equipped with a twin-turbo V8 3.8, which gives out 600 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. The unit is paired with a seven-speed robotic gearbox with two clutches. To 100 km/h car is accelerat in 2.9 seconds, and 200 kilometers per hour in 8.4 seconds. This is about 0.2 seconds slower than the 600LT coupe.

The maximum speed with a raised roof is 324 kilometers per hour, and with a lowered – 315 kilometers per hour.

The McLaren 600 LT coupe in the UK is £ 185,500 (36.5 thousand more expensive than the 570S), and the open version costs £ 201,500.
