The McLaren 600LT has a full suite of ‘Longtail’ characteristics to ensure it delivers an even more engaging and accomplished driving experience than other Sport Series models. in the same way that the McLaren 675LT utilised wishbones and uprights derived from the first Ultimate Series, the McLaren P1™, the adoption of suspension components from the Super Series is key to the chassis set-up of the 600LT, which features both the front and rear double wishbones and suspension uprights from the 720S, along with the rear toe-links.
“To stay true to its iconic race-bred predecessor, enhanced downforce and aerodynamics are at the heart of the McLaren 600LT. The ‘Longtail’ name gave us the freedom to push the envelope on the most extreme road-legal model in the Sports Series. We’ve been brave in creating the top-exit exhausts, but as well as their unique sound and visual appearance, this delivered tremendous opportunities to enhance aerodynamic performance because our aesthetic and technical designs are integrally linked.”
