McLaren 600LT: Lighter, faster and oh so pretty

Cars
[NOISE] When McLaren introduced the 605LT the souped up version of the 650S, they were doing more than just paying homage to the F1 GTR long tail of the 90s. They were building a new performance sub-brand, and those two little letters, "LT," have been added to the 570 to make this, the 600LT. [MUSIC] Now LT now conceptionaly relates to the performance enhancements rather than it actually being longer, but this car actually happens to be a little bit longer. 74mm which is about that much and although that doesn;t seem a lot, when you actual;ly look at it it does feel that little bit longer than the 570s or the 570 GT It might be an optical illusion with the wing at the rear, but certainly does have a bit more presence. There's carbon fiber additions all over the place, from the front down the side sails all the way to the rear. But weight saving has really been put in everywhere. Inside are the same seats from the [UNKNOWN]. The weight of them is absolutely minute but still equally strong and safe. Double wishbone suspension all around is lighter, the wheels are lighter. The lightweight suspension set up has been lifted directly from the 720S as well as the brakes, which will go a long way to making the 600 LT feel much more track focused than the rest of the sport series McLarens. Other enhancements to make the car feel significantly more exciting include a quickly steering rack, firmer engine mounts, and a set of [UNKNOWN] P0s. Overall, 23% of parts have been replaced by lighter and stronger alternatives. All those little touches add up to 100 kilos of weight saved, which is a fair amount. But the biggest change for me designwise is around the rear. A lot of people felt that the 570 GT had a more attractive rear design than the 570 S, and this car feels like it has way more in common with that. the smoother, rounded off line in the back here, but the addition is this amazing exhaust system right here which will sit right behind the driver's head. That exhaust placement actually puts it closer to the engine, than it is on the McLaren Center. It won't only sound Amazing and this thing will really scream. But will reduce back pressure and less distance covered means less weight. 600 obviously relates to the PS in the car. So that works out about 591 traditional British horsepower. The extra performance is great and the exhaust system will go a long way to making the other ways team sounding McLaren sound that much more muscular. But the highlight of the 600 LT has to be the looks. It makes the. To 570S feel rather pedestrian and even comparing it to the 675LT it makes that car feel slightly under designed. All of these visual changes make this the best looking McLaren right now. The wing will provide passive arodynamics but will significantly increase downforce. The diffuser at the rear here Well it's chunky to say the least and kinda hints at the aerodynamics at play here. And they've taken a car that was already incredibly well balanced and just made it a bit more aggressive, a bit more dynamic. Can't wait to get behind the wheel. [MUSIC]
