Why You Need a 2020 McLaren 600LT in Your Life

March 6th, 2020 by

The 2020 McLaren 600LT Spider brings on a new dimension of excitement to the Sports Series family without compromising on performance and the dynamics found in the line-up. Since McLaren has discontinued the 600LT coupe for the 2020 model, the trim lineup currently consists solely of the convertible 600LT Spider. This is the fifth in the lineup to carry the Longtail name and fully embodies McLaren’s Longtail philosophy of reduced weight, optimized dynamics, increased power, track-focused dynamics, and limited availability.

Incredible Strength

The McLaren 600LT Spider takes full advantage of the strength of the Carbon Fiber MonoCell II Chasis, resulting in dynamic abilities at par with the discontinued 600LT Coupe. With a weight premium of just 50kg, no additional structural strengthening is required. In addition to weight, the top-exit exhaust that debuted on the coupe has been retained. Though it sounds like the previous it looks much better with the rear window on the convertible lowered.

Depending on how much fun you like, the 600LT Spider will shoot flames out of its top-exit exhaust. Enhancing the Spider’s experience with open-air motoring is a power-retractable hardtop that allows you to easily lower or raise the three-piece roof at the push of a button.

Power

The convertible is powered by an electronic control system of the twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter V-8 engine producing 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet worth of torque. The power is transmitted to the rear wheels aided by a dual-clutch, Seamless Shift, seven-speed Gearbox.

Performance

The 600LT Spider reaches 62 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds, with 124 miles per hour achieved in just 8.4 seconds. The maximum speeds achieved on the convertible are 201 miles per our when the roof is raised, and 196 miles per hour with the roof lowered. The fuel economy on this car is estimated to be about 15 miles per gallon (mpg) city and 22 mpg highway.

Interior and Exterior Fittings

The 2020 600 LT comes with standard exterior amenities such as automatic LED headlights that have an auto-leveling feature, LED taillights, heated power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, carbon-ceramic brakes, cruise control, and an onboard lap-timer system. It makes a bold statement with a large 19-inch rim in front and 20-inch in the rear wheels, design elements such as black side moldings, wing spoilers, and rocker side-panel extensions to give this car an intimidating vibe. The 600LT comes with standard driver-assist features such as backup cameras, as well as front and rear parking sensors.

Within the cabin, racing seats come as standard, along with a manually adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering column, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless entry, and ignition, as well as an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

To decrease weight, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, a four-speaker audio system, and voice controls can be equipped at your request for no additional cost on. Additionally, the luxury package on the McLaren 600LT Spider comes with power-adjustable heated seats, a power-adjustable steering column, and a 12-speaker audio system

The availability of the 2020 McLaren 600LT Spider will be limited, just like the coupe. Nonetheless, it’s available to order now from McLaren retailers. Each car will be hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre.
