  • 2019 McLaren 600LT Spider

    Like a well-oiled machine, McLaren continues to churn out model after model, each just a little more desirable than the one before it. The latest arrival is the 600LT Spider, the open-top version of last year's 600LT coupe and the new flagship of McLaren's entry-level Sports Series range. For those unfamiliar with the LT designation, it's short for “Longtail,” which McLaren first applied to an F1 GTR race car in the 1990s, due to its stretched rear section that was implemented for aerodynamic purposes. Since then the designation has been turned into a trim level, with the first...

  • 2019 McLaren 600LT

    McLaren on Thursday unveiled a new member of its Sports Series. Called the 600LT, the car is a new hardcore variant plugging the gap between the 570S and the 720S from the Super Series. LT, which stands for Longtail in McLaren-speak, is the British automaker's designation for track-focused road cars, and the 600LT is only the third McLaren to wear it. Like the previous F1 GTR LT and 675LT, the 600LT brings a combination of more power and less weight to the table. Loosely based on the 570S (McLaren says around a quarter of the parts are new), which itself is no slouch, the 600LT also benefits...

  • McLaren logo

    McLaren has confirmed it will drop the top on its 570S sometime in 2017, officially announcing the impending arrival of the 570S Spider. The British supercar maker's chief, Mike Flewitt, revealed the 570S would be treated to a folding, hard-top roof, but at the same time stated a 540C Spider has been ruled out, according to Autocar. "With the 540C, by the time you add options it can cost the same as a 570S, which is why we only offer it in certain markets," Flewitt said. "And because of that it doesn't make sense to do a 540C Spider. There will never be a 540 GT either." The 570S Spider is...

    McLaren bringing 570GT, MSO concept to Monterey

    McLaren is about to introduce a new model in the United States in the form of the 570GT, which as the name suggests is a car more suited to grand touring than carving up a race track. We first saw the 570GT in March at the 2016 Geneva auto show, but now it’s ready to make its North American...
