The McLaren 600LT is set to debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed, so McLaren has revealed the full list of tech details and specs for the little Longtail, even going to the length of providing preliminary performance figures.
We already knew the 600LT would cop a 441kW/620Nm tune of the twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 and weigh just 1247kg dry. Peak power arrives at 7500rpm, while peak torque is accessible between 5500 and 6500rpm.
McLaren has now confirmed its kerb weight at 1356kg, more than 60kg lighter than the ballistic 720S. It’s worth keeping in mind that kerb weight includes a fuel tank at 90 per cent filled, which is 64.8 litres in the 600LT’s case (for a 72-litre tank).

MSO Clubsport and MSO Clubsport Pro packs, which are designed by McLaren Special Operations, are said to further reduce weight, though McLaren doesn’t specify by how much.
These packs include features such as lightweight carbon fibre racing seats, gearshift paddles, display surrounds, and steering wheel spokes. The roof also gets the carbon treatment, while in the ‘Pro’ pack adds an MSO harness bar and 6-point harness
The 600LT’s light weight is in part thanks to the use of ‘lighter and stiffer suspension components’ from the McLaren 720S such as forged aluminium double wishbones and uprights. The 600LT also borrows its brakes from the McLaren Super Series.
To that end, McLaren says the following figures are still yet to be confirmed, but they’re impressive even now.
