The spider variant of the 675 LT is equally exciting
Mclraen first showcased the 675 LT at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show for the first time and it was one of the crowd’s hot favorite. Mclaren will be building only 500 units of these one of a kind sportscar and the special focus has been given to make it lightweight.
In this video you can watch the twin brother of the Mclaren 675 LT in its spider body form being driven on the track by Bruno Senna. According to him the lightweight nature of the car definitely helps it to be absolutely fluid on the race track. You can watch as the car is thrown to its limit in the race track. Just like the Coupe variant the 675 LT spider is also powered by the M838TL engine, but this particular engine’s components has been changed and reworked. This engine is now capable of producing about 675 Ps of peak power and 700 NM of torque. All that power is transmitted to the rear wheel via the help of 7 speed SSG transmission. With the heldp of reduced weight the car can sprint from 0-100km/h mark in just 2.9 seconds, the car can also hit a top speed of 329 km/h mark.
Bruno Senna who is driving this car, explains that there is hardly any difference between the Coupe and spider variant and he has driven both the cars. He also explains the best thing about the 675 LT is that that it can be driven in a comfortable way and can also be pushed to its limits and the 675 LT Spider is comfortable in both the modes.
For quite some time now Mclaren has stopped building the MP4-12C which was one of the brilliant production cars that came out from the British Sportscar manufacturer workshop. In the meantime the P1 Hypercar came and impressed the people with its sheer power and that new and exclusive styling. Let’s just say that the 650S Spider has just evolved out of the above mentioned cars but still has its own unique character.
Unveiled at the 84th International Geneva Motor Show the 650S Spider according to Mclaren does not compromise on its performance or handling a bit still after being an open top convertible. Mechanically this car is similar to the 650S Coupe and is powered by the same McLaren M838T twin turbo V8 engine. We knew the MP4 12 C was no doubt a great car be it its handling, power figures or ride quality and believe it or not the new 650S Spider too shares the same Carbon fibre Composite chassis which was used by the 12C.
This open top convertible is fast and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds flat while it has a claimed top speed of about 329 Km/h. For stopping weather you like it or not Mclraen has fitted the car with carbon fiber ceramic disc brakes while it also comes with sticky Pirelli tyres for maximum grip. There is absolutely no way this convertible compromises on anything.

How often do you actually see a Hypercar on road? In this video there is not one but actually two of the world’s finest and really fast Hypercar’s which are ready to race against each other in an open airstrip.
Autocar recently conducted a drag race between the Mclaren P1 and the Porsche 918 Spyder which are both actually has a hybrid powertrain. These mid engine Hypercars are fast and the engine produces an enormous amount of power. However there is a twist here there is one more contender who too actually is participating in this unique drag race and that’s the new Ducati 1199 Superleggera. Now you must be thinking that the motorcycle surely weighs almost less than half of this two cars and a car although be it an extreme Hypercar like the Mclaren P1 or the Porsche 918 cannot actually compete with a motorcycle because it’s lightweight and fast. But you will actually have to wait till the end of this video to find out what actually happens next.
The Mclaren P1 actually produces 904 bhjp while the Porsche 918 produces about 875 bhp while the super exclusive Ducati Superleggera produces about 200 bhp of peak power which is really less compared to the other two beasts here.
Enjoy the Drag race and find out who actually wins this ultimate battle.
It’s a rare sight really! Quite honestly how often do you get to watch supercar owner’s pushing their cars to the limit on an empty private airstrip?
But Evo along with Vmax200 organized an event called Evo Max where supercar owners from all over the UK were invited to push their cars to the limit and it was a massive event which took place on September 2014. There were a lot of supercars present at the event and all waiting to reach the top speed and their owners eagerly waiting for their turn to unleash their beasts on the airstrip. There were
Lamborghinis, Mclaren, Noble, Mercedes AMG’s Aston Martins, Porsches, Bentleys and believe it or not even a Ferrari La-Ferrari and last but not the least a Bugatti Veyron.
