Cast your mind back to the 2016 Geneva Motor show, McLaren unveiled a naked carbon fibre version of its mightiest hypercar the P1. On the basis that the public rather liked this very expensive public display of nudity, McLaren Special Operations have decided to give it another go.
The next candidate for this exercise in public nudity, the McLaren 675LT Spider Carbon Series. If you want one then you’re too late as all 25 cars in the limited production run are already sold.
The 675LT Carbon Series features the same V-8 engine as its less naked painted sibling producing the same 675bhp output, yielding a planet stopping 516ib ft of torque, 0-62mph is dispensed with in 2.9 seconds going onwards to a very fast 203mph top speed.
According to the specs, the Carbon Series 675LT features an additional 40 per cent of carbon-fibre parts over its non-MSO sibling. The exhaustive list includes a carbon fibre roof and tonneau, bonnet and rear deck, side blades, wings, A-pillars and fuel filler cap. This is alongside the standard 675LT’s carbon side skirts, intakes, bumpers and Airbrake.
Also included with the Carbon Series is McLaren’s Track Telemetry pack as standard fit, this system features a total of three built-in cameras mounted at various points in the car assuming you want to record yourself honing the thing at your nearest racetrack.
MSO will build a total of 25 Carbon Series cars in addition to the 500 Spider versions that are currently in production.
No mention of a price yet but if you have to ask then you likely cannot afford one, the cars are expected to be with customers by the end of 2016 which would put them at the tail end of the 675LT Spider production run.
