UPDATED: McLaren announces another Geneva debut – the 675LT

McLaren has added another debut to its Geneva Motor Show program with the announcement that the 675LT will be on display in Switzerland in March.


And if that wasn't enough to pique the interest, a few days after the first announcement, McLaren then unveiled a short audio clip of the 3.8-liter twin turbo V8. You can see the video here.


McLaren is drawing on its heritage by reintroducing the Longtail line for the launch of the 675LT. The name was first given to the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail in 1997.

The road-legal 675LT will, McLaren insists, embody the Longtail ethos, with a focus on performance-optimized aerodynamics, increased downforce, driver engagement, power and reduced weight.

The 675LT will join the core range of McLaren supercars, alongside the existing 650S and Asia-only 625C, to form the newly named McLaren Super Series – which sits above the recently announced Sports Series in the range hierarchy. In line with the convention started with the 650S, the 675LT’s name denotes its output - 675ps. This makes the 675LT the most powerful offering in the Super Series.

More details of the 675LT, including its startling performance figures, will be announced in the weeks running up to the Geneva Show.


The Geneva show promises to be a busy one for the Woking-based manufacturer, as McLaren will also be unveiling the P1 GTR (pictured) – its most powerful car to date, boasting a power-to-weight ratio in excess of 700ps per ton.


Visitors will also be keen to find out more about the eagerly anticipated P13, McLaren's entry-level sports model, which is destined to challenge rivals such as Porsche, Ferrari and Audi.
