McLaren Teases 570LT\600LT with Top Exhaust Exits, Sets Debut for June 20

McLaren Teases 570LT\600LT with Top Exhaust Exits, Sets Debut for June 20

This could turn into a delightful-sounding McLaren with enough throttle noise to make our ears bleed

The McLaren 570LT is coming, and apparently, a new teaser released by McLaren shows that it’s coming with top-exit exhausts that have the potential to give the 570LT a better soundtrack compared to the 570S. Details are still scarce about the upcoming model, but in addition to the delightful location of the exhausts, it’s also going to arrive in limited quantities. Or as McLaren puts it, “limited to the few.”

The McLaren BP23 Will Probably be Called the McLaren GT When it Goes Into Production

The McLaren BP23 Will Probably be Called the McLaren GT When it Goes Into Production

There goes any chance of the car being named the McLaren Hakkinen

It’s no secret that McLaren is developing a follow-up hypercar to the P1. Internally, the model is called by its prototype designation, “BP23.” Externally, it could be called the McLaren GT, if a recent trademark filing by McLaren is to be believed. If the filing is accurate, it would put to bed any speculation on what the new hypercar is going to be called. I suppose we’re going to have to wait a little longer for the McLaren Hakkinen to arrive.

The Geneva Motor Show Is Where The Fastest Of The Fast Strut Their Stuff

Looking for Earth-shattering output and a price tag to match? Then head over to Switzerland

If you ever need a reminder that yes, we are indeed living in a golden age of performance automobiles, just check out the list of debuts heading to this year’s Geneva International Motor Show. Specs and figures that would have been considered outlandish and silly just a few decades ago are now becoming the norm, as million-dollar, 1,000+ horsepower monster machines seem to litter the Palexpo convention center floor in 2018. Here are some of the highlights.

Don't Expect To See a McLaren SUV Anytime Soon

Don’t Expect To See a McLaren SUV Anytime Soon

But don’t close the door on ever seeing one either

In a world where the Lamborghini Urus and the Aston Martin DBX exist, the thought of a supercar brand venturing into the realm of SUVs isn’t that far-fetched anymore. It’s not just Lambo and Aston, either. Bentley also has the Bentayga, Rolls-Royce has the Cullinan, and Ferrari has, well, something up its sleeve. McLaren, however, is resisting the urge to jump into that market. It’s said before that it has no plans to develop an SUV. That stance was reinforced recently by the company’s chief designer, Dan Parry-Williams.

2019 McLaren Speedtail

2019 McLaren Speedtail

Revolutionary aerodynamics, central driver’s seat

The McLaren Speedtail is the latest iteration of the Ultimate Series. Although it follows the Senna, it actually replaced the P1, the spiritual successor of the F1. But unlike the P1, the Speedtail features a three-seat layout with a center-mounted drivers seat, just like the F1. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain, it’s the fastest, most powerful, and most aerodynamic McLaren built to date!

Dubbed a Hyper-GT and previously referred to as the BP23, the Speedtail is somewhat of a new concept from McLaren. While it has the output of a hypercar, it looks more like a super-streamline vehicle than a race-inspired supercar and sports a luxurious interior packed with innovative materials. Arguably the coolest thing about it is the central driving seat, a feature borrowed from the iconic F1. It’s the ultimate McLaren road car!

1993 McLaren F1

1993 McLaren F1

Arguably the most iconic supercar of the 1990s

The McLaren F1 was unveiled in May 1992 and was the company’s first road-going production car. The idea was born in the late 1980s, when Gordon Murray, the technical director of McLaren’s Formula One, began sketching the F1 as a three-seat supercar. Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in 1991, Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof.

Not only powerful and quick, the F1 was also the world’s fastest production car. Its record endured from 1992 until 2005, when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron. The F1 spawned a couple of special-edition models such as the LM and the GT, but it was also used as a base for the GTR race car. Essentially a standard F1 with aerodynamic improvements, the GTR went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first year on the race track.

Some 25 years have passed since its introduction and the F1 is already considered a classic. Usually changing owners for millions of dollars, the F1 is one of the very few multi-million-dollar supercars built in the 1990s.
