McLaren has confirmed a rumor which indicated a more potent variant of the 650S Coupe is in the works.

Described as being "more powerful and track-focused" than the 650S Coupe, McLaren's new version of the supercar will premiere in March at the Geneva Motor Show and is expected to pay homage to the 1997 F1 GTR "Long Tail." This presumption is being made by judging the attached official teaser image showing a camouflaged prototype featuring an elongated rear end.

It's also visually distinguishable by the new side air intakes positioned low while the rumored "675 LT" name means the twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine will be upgraded to 675 HP (496 kW). Aside from the extra punch, the hotter version is expected to drop 100 kg (220 lbs) and it is believed production will be capped at 250 units.

Later this year, a track-only version could be launched as a more powerful alternative to the 650S Sprint.
