McLaren will debut the haunting 2019 McLaren 600LT Spider by MSO at the Geneva Motor Show. McLaren loves to show off the designs from its McLaren Special Operations (MSO) division. The roadster received a visual upgrade. The automaker displayed the concept and its possibilities of the 600LT Spider at the show last year in Geneva. McLaren often uses the Geneva Show to show the world the MSO projects. About half of all 600LT Coupe buyers utilize MSO, so enthusiasts will like the customization on the open-top Spider version.
The new 600LT is paying respects to the 675LT, it’s predecessor. It uses the original paint from the 675LT, Napier Green is used as the accent color. Dove Grey is the main body color giving it a smoky look. McLaren gave the 600LT the ultimate treatment, using a paint method only used on race cars. The Napier Green outlines several aero pieces, on the brake calipers, and stripes across the side of the body.
The vehicle has an exposed carbon fiber aero kit and the door scoops have a satin finish to contrast against the gloss black 10-spoke lightweight alloy wheels. The interior comes with several optional features. It has the carbon fiber racing seats that were originally developed for the McLaren Senna, with 600LT embroidered into the headrests. It features an Alcantara headliner and steering wheel with green contrasting elements. Carbon fiber accents the door inserts, the tunnel sides, the gear select housing and the infotainment surround.
The 600LT with the MSO upgrade is still running the standard 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 592 horsepower. It runs 0-60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 201 mph with the roof up. It will keep the top exit exhausts and lightweight suspension components. Only the fourth McLaren in two decades to receive the LT or Longtail name, ready to push performance, and expand the family. The new chapter in the LT story continues at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
