McLaren builds 'naked' 675LT Spider

Special operations builds all-carbon supercar

McLaren's Special Operations division is to build a further 25 675LT Spiders dubbed the 'Carbon Series'.

The regular 675LT Spider already features plenty of carbonfibre bodywork, including the front bumper and underbody, side skirts, side intakes and rear guards, deck, bumper and diffuser, but the Carbon Series adds to that with the roof, tonneau, A-pillars, bonnet, side blades and front guards also created from the lightweight material.

Mc Laren -675LT-Spider -MSO-rearThe new parts add around 40 per cent to a regular 675 LT's carbon fibre content, and the sexy black weave is shown off to good effect by the clear gloss finish.

As it's not possible to retrofit the additional carbon panels, the 25 Carbon Series are in addition to the 500-strong 675LT Spider production run.

Mc Laren -P1-MSOThe model was created in response to customer demand following the reveal of an all-carbon McLaren P1 at this year's Geneva Motor Show. 

Performance is unchanged compared to the regular 675LT Spider, with the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 497kW/700Nm, which allows it to hit 100km/h in 2.9sec and 200km/h in 8.1sec. All 25 cars are sold.
