Most sports cars are built better than your typical vehicle. However, McLaren has a reputation for being particularly focused on its quality. Its new 600LT Spider is evidence of that. In every aspect, this is a badass ride.
When it comes to a sports car, the little details make a big impact. Things like sculpting and airflow can make or break a high-end car. Fortunately, the McLaren 600LT Spider is formed with a clear purpose in mind—aerodynamic efficiency and cooling.
It features an elongated silhouette with a lowered stance and wider track that increases downward force on the car. That gives it tremendous handling and stability on fast corners. The car also has a sleek look. When performance isn’t essential, the roof retracts to give riders all the joys of top-down driving.
Airflow can only go so far though. A sports car also needs to be light. The McLaren 600LT Spider is built with a carbon MonoCell II monocoque ‘tub,’ which makes it both light and strong. On the inside, lightweight Alcantara fabric on the seats shaves off extra weight without compromising quality. McLaren notes that it is “the lightest car in its class.”
Don’t let the sleek looks of this car fool you. It comes with all the power you’d expect from a McLaren. The 600LT Spider boasts a powerful 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Its power is boosted with an extra 30PS and 20Nm of torque. It also features the same super-fast Inertia Push gearshifts as the standard 600LT.
This amped up model takes just 2.9 seconds to hit 62 mph. If that isn’t enough, it is also capable of reaching an incredible top speed of 201 mph. The McLaren 600LT Spider is a car you shouldn’t miss. Learn more
