Well, we can say that the new 675 LT has been finally on its way to hit the showrooms as a 2019 McLaren 675LT model. Although the true fans probably know that, the acronym LT stands for ‘long tail’.
The exterior styling of the 2019 McLaren 675LT will definitely leave you breathless. It will represent a really unique supercar with an aggressive and eye-catching appearance. According to the information we have got, the 675LT has been inspired by the older 650S model, but it will wear much more improvements and innovations. The first innovation that the carmaker has prepared includes its reduced weight. Namely, the car’s chassis and most of its details will be made of lightweight carbon fiber. You can only imagine to what extent this car will improve its acceleration and overall performance. It will also be much safer, with better stability and handling, especially at those great speeds. When it comes to exterior features, you will definitely notice its attractive and lowered front fascia that has been often compared to a shark nose. Therefore, you can hope for some excellent aerodynamics on this model. You will also find its LED headlights of unusual design and large air intakes that will be more pronounced. The whole bodywork of the 675LT will appear more aggressive, muscular and dynamic. This model should stand on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels and it will be available in five exterior color choices.

The seats will be covered with premium-quality Alcantara leather and provide the ultimate comfort. The driver will also get a touch-screen display in the center console with features such as the navigation and multimedia system.
