What is it like on the inside?

The 600LT sets a certain tone inside. Track-focused, unsurprisingly. You sit very low, yet the deep windscreen means the road fast-forwards under your heels. I can’t think of a better steering wheel to hold, all the controls are nicely aligned and operate crisply (except those brakes when cold), and I’d urge you to stick with the standard seats. They’re the fixed back chairs from the P1.

Trouble is, McLaren also offers the lightweight seats from the Senna, a pair of which saves a whopping 24.6kg. Basically one piece of carbon with some padding stuck on. Clever stuff, undoubtedly and available in two widths. Ours were the wider ones, and they gave most of us bruised ribs from smacking from side to side. If you’re buying a 600LT I’m sure McLaren will make sure yours fit properly.

Other dubious weight savings are available. Doing without a stereo saves 3.3kg, and if you’re into self-basting why not save 12.6kg and junk the AC? Our car ‘benefited’ from that feature. Don’t do it. You’re not that much of a fetishist.
