  • Why the McLaren 600LT has a top-mount exhaust

    McLaren's top-mount exhaust pipes on the 600LT certainly look cool, but there are actually multiple reasons why the British marque opted for the design. Jason Fenske of Engineering Explained had the opportunity to speak with the 600LT's chief engineer, and he answered numerous questions about the design, how it functions, and how it interacts with the rest of the car's design. To start, weight is a major benefit to the design. For example, Jason compares the 570S's more traditional exhaust system to the 600LT. In the 570S, the exhaust comes out of each side of the V-8 engine, travels over the...

McLaren hasn’t pulled any surprises with the design. The 570S Spider features a neatly integrated retractable hardtop similar to the unit found on the 650S and 675LT supercars.

  • 2016 McLaren 570S

The tone McLaren strikes is as clear as a bell. It should, since it's the namesake of one of the few drivers to...
