The Top Gear car review:McLaren 675 LT
For:Performance, handling, driving experience, design
Against:Unless your name is Alonso, you can’t buy one
What is it?
Amazing. Phenomenal. And possibly even a bargain. Well, sort of. The 675 LT is McLaren’s answer to the Ferrari 458 Speciale, a harder, lighter, faster, unbelievably intense reworking of the 650S, best enjoyed on a circuit but still immensely satisfying on the road. OK, so £259,500 makes for a strange sort of bargain, but as McLaren reckons this is closer to its £1m P1 hybrid hypercar than the car it’s based on, you can see where we’re coming from.
