McLaren Special Operations has unveiled the MSO Carbon Series LT, which will be strictly limited to 25 units worldwide.
All, however, have already been sold. Sorry, folks – put your wallets away.
The Carbon Series LT is based on the McLaren 675LT Spider, and has been created in response to requests from customers McLaren says were “captivated” by the carbon-fibre bodied McLaren P1 displayed in Geneva back in March.
Yes, that means McLaren has applied gloss carbon-fibre to pretty much the entire body of the vehicle. In fact, the British automaker says the new model features around 40% additional carbon-fibre parts over the standard car (which itself isn’t exactly short on the lightweight material).
As with the 675LT Spider, the front bumper, front under-body, side-skirts, side intakes, lower side intakes, rear bodyside lower, rear fenders, rear deck, rear bumper, diffuser and Longtail Airbrake are all fashioned from carbon-fibre. But now a gloss finish has been added, revealing the inherent weave of the material.
In addition, the MSO Carbon Series LT is fitted with a gloss-finished carbon-fibre electrically retractable roof and tonneau, A-pillars, bonnet and rear deck, side blades, complete front and rear wings, and even fuel-filler flap.
The McLaren Track Telemetry pack, which includes three track cameras, is fitted as standard equipment. The front wings also feature GT3-inspired functional louvres.
Under the new carbon-fibre skin lurks a heavily revised 3,8-litre twin-turbo V8 powertrain, with an output of 496 kW and 700 N.m. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes a mere 2,9 seconds, while 200 km/h is reach in 8,1 seconds. Top speed, meanwhile, is 326 km/h.
