Features 40 percent more carbon fiber parts than the regular model.

McLaren Special Operations took the wraps off a carbon-clad P1 earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show and now the 675LT Spider is receiving just about the same treatment. It features approximately 40 percent more carbon fiber parts over the regular 675LT Spider, but these new lighter body components can’t be retro-fitted to one of the 500 units of the regular long-tailed, open-top 675. That’s because MSO also had to make other changes for the new limited-run special edition, so the new parts are not compatible with the regular model.

All carbon fiber parts of the standard 675LT Spider have received a glossy finish to better show off the weave of the material. In addition, the electrically-retractable roof and tonneau are now dipped in carbon fiber, just like the A-pillars, side blades, hood, and rear deck. Moreover, McLaren’s MSO division has created bespoke carbon fiber front and rear wings and even a new fuel filler cap which has also received the carbon fiber treatment. To make it even more special, the front wings have received functional louvers in the same vein as the 650S GT3.

Power comes from the same biturbo 3.8-liter V8 engine developing a devilish 666 horsepower (497 kW) and 516 pound-feet (700 newton meters) of torque. It’s enough muscle to enable the MSO Carbon Series LT run to 62 mph (100 kph) in 2.9 seconds and max out at 203 mph (326 kph).

Limited to just 25 units, the MSO Carbon Series LT has already reached sold out status and production is slated to come this fall, with deliveries programmed to kick off before the year’s end. All cars will come as standard with the McLaren Track Telemetry Pack featuring three track cameras to grab all the action.
