McLaren’s New 675LT Spider Coupe Will Be Limited To 500 Cars

Gloriously fast and deliciously gorgeous cars exist. I should know — I’ve seen them in pictures. The problem is always cash-related, but a shortage of megabucks won’t stop me from admiring McLaren’s latest beauty: the 675LT Spider.

While Australian pricing is unavailable right now, the 675LT will set you back $US372,600, which works out to be over half a million dollars in local currency. A purchase however does put you in an exclusive club with 499 others, as McLaren plans to only produce — you guessed it — 500 vehicles.

Part of the manufacturer’s “Super Series”, it joins the ranks of the 570S and 540C Coupes, along with the P1 GTR. As for specs, it comes with a 3.8L V8 engine that can pump out 666hp in controlled conditions; it’s seven-speed, weights 1270kg dry and can manage a top speed of 326km/h.

Oh and it’ll hit 100km/h in less than three seconds.

Is it worth considering if you have $500,000 spare? I’m sure that’s a question most of us aren’t really in a position to answer. Nice to ponder, though.
