McLaren 675LT Is So Quick on the Track P1 Owners Should Be Worried

Now you know why the 675LT sold out so quickly

When McLaren unveiled the 675LT limited edition model, the company described it as the closest model to the P1 hypercar performance-wise.

However, we had no idea it is that close. With 675 PS (666 hp) at 7,100 rpm and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) at 5,500-6,500 rpm from the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, the 675LT is blisteringly fast. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, breaks the 200 km/h (124mph) barrier in 7.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph).

The dry weight of just 1,230 kg (2,712 lbs) and the aero kit that gives it 40 percent more downforce than the 650S make it a track machine first and foremost, as the folks from EVO discovered while testing it on the Anglesey circuit in the UK.

So how close is the 675LT to the P1 hypercar, which has also been tested in similar conditions on the picturesque track? We won't spoil it for you, but we do admit we were shocked about how small the gap was between the two McLarens. Not to mention that the 675LT's lap time made it quicker than the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, 911 Turbo S, and Ferrari 458 Speciale.

Good luck trying to find a used 675LT…
