McLaren Dropped A Short Teaser Of Its 675L Before The Geneva Motor Show
“To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy.” — Bruce McLaren
To die for something well and to become a legend for each car that they have made — that’s McLaren’s philosophy.
Yesterday, the British just dropped a quick teaser about its 675L, the purest, most involved series-production McLaren supercar to date, which will make its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The new 675L will revive the legendary “Longtail” name given to one of the iconic GT sport cars of all time, the McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail”.
In this new model, McLaren’s engineers embodied the “Longtail” ethos with its focus on performance-optimised aerodynamics, increased downforce and reduced weight — about 220 pounds lighter over the 650S. The British carmaker didn’t mention anything about the power of its 675L, but it has been rumored that the new supercar will be powered with 666 horsepower pumping out from the twin-turbo V8 — probably enough to give the car ludicrously fast speeds.
The McLaren 675L will be a road-legal member of the burgeoning McLaren Super Series range of cars, sitting alongside the 650S and Asia-only 625C. Sales will start late in 2015.
