5 Reasons to Brag About the New 2020 McLaren 600LT Coupe

December 27th, 2019 by

From the attention-demanding design, to the powerful engine, you will definitely be impressed by every detail of the McLaren 600LT Coupe. The adrenaline rush that comes with driving this car is not for the faint of heart. Here are five reasons to brag about the new 2020 600LT.

High-Performance Engine

When you get behind the wheel of the 2020 McLaren 600LT Coupe you will instantly feel the powershift that takes place once you turn that key. Under the hood is a 3.8-liter V-8 twin-turbo engine. It uses a powertrain system that reduces backpressure from the exhaust system for a more intense driving experience.

This outstanding engine design allows you to go from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds, and will provide you with 600PS. This is possible thanks to a combination of the dry-sump lubrication system that provides you with higher cornering speeds without having an oil surge, and the flat-plane crankshaft that lets the engine be mounted as low as possible to help improve the cars handling.

Lightweight Carbon Fiber Construction

The heart of the McLaren 600LT Coupe is the precision-crafted carbon fiber design. Since its start in 1981, the concept of carbon fiber designs has made these cars faster and stronger than ever. This advanced construction technology provides you with a comfortable ride and amazing handling. The front splitter and floor, side intakes, and side sills are all made from carbon fiber.

Interior Inspired by the Racetrack

We all know the McLaren is a luxury sports vehicle, but you might not know just exactly how the interior is designed. When you sit inside for the first time you will see that Alcantara has been used throughout to help with weight. There is also no carpet under the seats and in the footwell of the car. If you are buying the car for track performance only, you can choose to not have air conditioning, audio, or navigation put in, but these are also available at no cost if you do want them. There is also a thinner windshield design to help with weight as well.

Longtail Design

The elongated tail found on the 600LT was implemented to allow more aerodynamic efficiency. The bodywork extends from the front and rear and helps to decrease downforce levels. Airflow is separated by this design and directed over, under, and through the bodywork for maximum speed. It also allows the rear wing to be mounted further back on the car for efficiency.

Repositioned Exhaust

With the 2020 model, the exhaust was positioned on top of the engine. This change was made in order to enhance the 600LT performance. An exhaust positioned on top allows the fenders to be pushed closer together at the engineering points, which exposes the rear tires. The rear diffuser allows the exhaust to be wider and taller for a more powerful ride.
