The regular 570S is very driveable indeed, and the 720S - from which this 600LT borrows some of the front suspension components - is a little harsher but easy to deal with day to day. McLaren develops its cars to deal with the roads around the factory, so they tend to work very well on UK roads.Strictly for the "G's"...it's most boys dream of a supercar but like most modern cars coming out of the supercar makers not practical or even real world drive-able.
I wasn't the one coming into this thread about the 600LT posting pictures of the F1 LT OR P1This is coming from the same person who is angered by those that say bad things about the P1
Funny how you say he's "attacking" you, yet you're the one who attacks others for having opinions different from yours.I wasn't the one coming into this thread about the 600LT posting pictures of the F1 LT OR P1
And again attacking me on the p1 kinda getting old now Come up with something new already.
And to Famine i'm sorry about hijacking your thread.
Oh I wouldn't worry, it's only a discussion thread for a news post on the front page of the site and thus directly linked from all of our social media.And to Famine i'm sorry about hijacking your thread.
The F1 LT is on-topic. I mean, look at the quote from McLaren's CEO:I wasn't the one coming into this thread about the 600LT posting pictures of the F1 LT
“The McLaren 600LT is only the fourth ‘Longtail’ McLaren in more than two decades. The McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ that began the lineage was one of the purest race cars in modern motorsport history. The 675LT resurrected the revered name, creating the purest distillation of the sheer driving pleasure embodied by all McLaren cars. Now we are further extending our very special LT family – albeit in limited numbers – and once again showcasing the ethos of optimised aerodynamics, increased power, reduced weight, track-focused dynamics and enhanced driver engagement that are the hallmarks of a McLaren ‘Longtail’.”
The wheelbase is unchanged. If I were a betting man I'd say a few mm comes from marginally extended rear body work, and the rest from the new splitter and diffuser.From the side pic, the extra three inches, is it a long "tail" or wheelbase? I'm not seeing the same lineage as the F1.
Don’t see how that disputes what he said; it’s his opinion much as your post is your’s. I quite like the sound the Longtails make and think the ‘97 GTRs are the best looking out of the bunch.Except it's not. There's only 3 of them (well, 2, the first one belongs to McLaren) and they're all sitting in personal collections/museums, no one's ever driven them and no one will ever do. You could probably buy 80 600LTs for the amount of money one of those would go for. But more importantly, the added rear end length and exhaust work that had to be done resulted in the car not sounding quite as good as the short tail F1. Doesn't quite look as good, either.
McLaren says there's nine of them (plus a development car), we featured one that came up for sale earlier this year, and we also featured Nelson Piquet driving one on the public road this time last year.Except it's not. There's only 3 of them (well, 2, the first one belongs to McLaren) and they're all sitting in personal collections/museums, no one's ever driven them and no one will ever do.
Fred is referring to the GT that article makes a mention of.
They were built for homologation purposes, but the death of the F1 in '98 put a quick stop to any more GTs.Three McLaren F1 GT road cars were built, with the original ‘XP GT’ prototype still retained by McLaren, and two more purchased by customers, making it the rarest of all the F1s to wear number plates.
I see. That's kind of a "long tail" the way they're explaining it. Shhh... I know, I know. The door is thataway...The wheelbase is unchanged. If I were a betting man I'd say a few mm comes from marginally extended rear body work, and the rest from the new splitter and diffuser.
