Default McLaren 675 LT Spider confirmed for 2016

McLaren has announced a Spider version of the now sold-out 675LT is in the works and will likely come in 2016.

When McLaren introduced the 675LT, they said it will be sold exclusively as a coupe, but now it appears they've changed their minds as a company representative told Autovisie there's going to be a Spider version as well. The coupe was limited to just 500 units and we believe the open-top derivative to be just as exclusive and will obviously command a serious premium over its fixed roof sibling which had a starting price of 259,500. Just like with the coupe, expect the 675LT Spider to be offered with an optional McLaren Club Sport pack bringing a fire extinguisher, titanium roll hoop and four-point harnesses - all for an extra 5,090.

Power will come from the same twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine pushing out 675 PS (496 kW) and 700 Nm (517 lb-ft) of torque wrapped around in a package that will weigh around 100 kg less than the 650S Spider. Performances should closely mirror those of the 675LT Coupe which needs 2.9 seconds for the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run, 7.9 seconds to complete the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) task before topping out at 205 mph (330 km/h).

It's not known at this point what made McLaren change their mind about the 675LT Spider, but most likely they received a lot of requests from potential customers to chop off the coupe's roof.

Lol. This guy has some real strong opinions and is very vocal about them. Love his videos and Instagram posts!
About the depreciation and resale value, seeing how the 675LT (both coupe and upcoming spider) had highly limited production (500 units) and how fast they were all sold out, I don't think they should lose any value. If anything, their prices should go up as seen in the case of 458 Speciale Aperta, 911 GT3 RS and the likes.

It turns out that Salomondrin completely agrees with me and has revealed that he has a 675LT on order!
This is him announcing it on instagram
