McLaren Special Operations announces the creation of the eye-catching MSO Carbon Series LT.

Following the reception of the carbon fibre-bodied McLaren P1™ displayed recently at the International Geneva Motor Show, McLaren Special Operations – the bespoke division of McLaren Autmotive, have created the limited edition MSO Carbon Series LT, based on the 675LT Spider body.

Limited to just 25 units – already pre-sold globally – the car features 40 percent of body panels created in carbon fibre, all with a unique gloss finish

With a focus on lightweight and optimised aerodynamic performance, the front bumper with larger splitter and end plates, front under body, side skirts, side intakes, lower side intakes, rear bodyside lower, rear fenders, rear deck, rear bumper, diffuser and ‘Longtail’ Airbrake are all carbon fibre, with the gloss finish revealing the inherent weave of the material. In addition, the car boasts a gloss finished carbon fibre electrically retractable roof and tonneau, A-pillars, bonnet and rear deck, side blades, complete front and rear wings, and even fuel filler flap. The McLaren Track Telemetry pack, which includes three track cameras, is fitted as standard equipment. The front wings also feature GT3-inspired functional louvres.

Under the gloss carbon fibre skin of the MSO Carbon Series LT sits a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 powertrain from its Coupé sibling, delivering 7,100rpm and 700Nm (516lb ft) available between 5,000-6,500rpm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes just 2.9 seconds, and 200 km/h (124 mph) is achieved in 8.1 seconds.
