model highlights

At the heart of the McLaren 600LT lies a 3.8L V8 engine fed by two turbochargers, mounted behind the driver, but in front of the rear axle. It is the same engine that powers most of McLaren's cars and in this state of tune its making 592 horsepower, sent to the rear-wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. That's 30 more horsepower than is produced by McLaren 570S and 570GT, two cars that share their chassis with the 600LT.

In addition to that extra horsepower, the 600LT also gets a fair number of styling and chassis tweaks, including a bunch of extra carbon fiber bodywork. This means that the 600LT also weighs less than the cars its based on. Additional exterior tweaks include a bigger, fixed spoiler and top mounted exhaust pipes which not only look and sound cool, but also blow additional air over that larger spoiler. Underneath, the 600LT gets forged aluminum suspension components based on those used in the more expensive 675LT. The brakes are also from McLaren's Super Series, with carbon ceramic rotors all around vs the steel units typically seen on the 570S and 570GT. The 600LT also comes with staggered wheels, 19-inch front and 20-inch rear forged alloy wheels.

The McLaren 600 LT comes with many standard features including Alcantara sport steering wheel, power door locks with push button start, Alcantara seating, parking sensors, power folding heated mirrors, automatic ride control and the signature McLaren's diehedral vertical doors.

McLaren street cars have always been incredibly fast, with no exceptions. However, McLaren also likes to emphasize that their cars are extremely usable when compared to many other exotics. This starts with suspension tuning that offers a better than expected ride and continues with a cockpit that's full of soft touch materials and the latest electronic goodies. Interiors can be covered in either lightweight Alcantara or luxurious Nappa Leather, though plenty of exposed carbon fiber tastefully makes its way into the interior as well, while a 12-speaker Bowers and Wilkins stereo is also available as an option.

model news

value writeup

McLaren categorizes the car as part of the Sport Series rather than the Super Series, at its price, with this kind of performance and looks, the 600LT pretty firmly qualifies as a supercar. It only looks like a mere sports car when compared to other (more expensive and faster) McLarens. Thankfully, when comparing the 600LT to other non-McLarens at this price point, the car more than holds its own. The Porsche 911 GT2 has a bit more power but doesn't look nearly as exotic and is more expensive. The Ferrari 488 GTB is also significantly more expensive. And while the Lamborghini Huracan is cheaper, it weighs far more than the McLaren 600LT and doesn't handle as well. The McLaren 600LT occupies a nice sweet spot by offering an incredibly focused driving experience and combining it with truly exotic looks, at a price that is a relatively good value when compared to its rivals.
