MSO-enhanced track special becomes production milestone, with the last of the hard-topped 600LTs rolling down the assembly line.
A McLaren 600LT Coupe has marked the 1000th vehicle produced the British supercar specialist, as the final units of the flagship hard-top Sports Series model roll down the production line.
The commemorative vehicle was the one pictured here, sold by McLaren London. Finished in silver, this 600LT Coupe features a range of bespoke McLaren Special Operations (MSO) appointments, including a carbon-fibre roof scoop, carbon cantrails, and the MSP Clubsport Pro Pack – carbon race seats, carbon trim inlays, MSO Defined front fender louvres, titanium wheel bolts, an MSO Defined harness bar with six-point harnesses.
Other specification highlights include two additional carbon-fibre exterior packages, 10-spoke ultra-lightweight wheels finished in gloss black, and orange painted McLaren brake calipers.
The McLaren 600LT Coupe has nearly concluded production, with the company noting its attention is now exclusively devoted to the 600LT Spyder which is still available to order. In Australia, the convertible is priced from $496,000 plus on-road costs – some $44,000 more than the coupe.
Like the hardtop, the 600LT Spyder is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 developing 441kW and 620Nm, sent to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
McLaren claims the drop-top supercar will dash from 0-100 in just 2.9 seconds and 0-200 in 8.4 seconds, on its way to a vmax of 324km/h – or 315km/h with the roof down.
“The limited-volume 600LT Coupé is another milestone in the continuing development of the McLaren ‘Longtail’ sub-brand established in 2015 with the 675LT models,” said David Gilbert, European managing director for McLaren Automotive.
“The fact that this Coupé – a unique, MSO-enhanced car – is also the celebration of the 1000th car to be sold by our first-ever retailer, McLaren London, makes this even more of a landmark moment. Customers wanting to order a 600LT from retailers in the McLaren Automotive European network still have the opportunity to secure a Spider version, but production on this exclusive model will also soon be fully allocated.”
