2019 McLaren 600LT First Look

More Power, Less Weight, More Long

McLaren is bringing the Longtail moniker back for the new 600LT, a track-oriented supercar with more power, less weight and more tail.

On the Coattails of History

The all-new 2019 McLaren 600LT is the fourth McLaren in the Longtail lineage, which starts with the legendary (not to mention legendarily expensive) McLaren F1 GTR Longtail. When it first hit the racing scene, the McLaren F1 GTR was well-nigh unbeatable, but competitors soon caught up. In an effort to give the aging F1 GTR a bit more of an edge, the vehicle was lightened and the body was redesigned to improve aerodynamics and increase downforce. In the process, the GTR grew a not-insignificant 25 inches in length.

Over the years, two other "Longtail" McLarens were produced, although both focused more on improved performance than on added length.

The 2019 McLaren 600LT likewise falls well short of its grandpappy's growth-spurt benchmark, adding just 2.9 inches of overall length compared to other Sports Series McLarens. Of course, all McLarens boast impressive aerodynamic engineering, so it's probably for the best that they didn't add 2 feet of sheet metal carbon fiber just for looks. Otherwise, the formula is familiar: add power, remove weight, make it faster on the track.

A Tail of Two Turbos

Power is up 30 horsepower compared to the 570S, for a total of 592 hp from the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8. Weight is down 211 pounds from the 570S, although it's unclear whether you'll see that much in the way of weight savings on a base 2019 McLaren 600LT. There's quite a bit of extra carbon-fiber bodywork (such as a roof panel and fenders) that buyers can opt for. And the lowest claimed dry weight of 2,749.2 pounds requires some of those optional extras.

Part of McLaren's weight-saving process included cutting the exhaust system way down and routing the tailpipes out through the top of the rear deck, right behind the driver. That not only saved on metal, but is objectively awesome.

Inside, you'll find a track-oriented cabin complete with swaths of faux suede and the same lightweight carbon-fiber seats as in the P1. You can also opt for the ultra-lightweight carbon-fiber seats from the McLaren Senna to drop even more weight. This probably won't be much of a road-trip car, but the aggressive buckets should be right at home on a track.

Limited Re-Tail Availability

Even when they're not particularly long, McLaren's Longtail cars have been among its rarest and fastest-selling models. If what you're looking for is a track car with mind-boggling capabilities, a collectible supercar, or just a totally rad exhaust system, get your name down now for the 2019 McLaren 600LT. Official production details haven't been released, but there won't be many examples sold and McLaren is already taking orders.

    2019 McLaren 600LT Goodwood First Drive

    2019 McLaren 600LT Goodwood First Drive

    [MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER: Welcome to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in sunny England. Every year, 200,000 people visit the home of the Duke of Richmond for a slice of automotive nirvana. It's Britain's answer to the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. But here, the cars get driven. Making its debut at Goodwood this weekend is the McLaren 600 LT. And it'll be exclusively driven up the famous hill climb by me. I've been charged with demonstrating these $240,000 car to the tens of thousands of people here at Goodwood and the millions more watching on television. It'll be the fastest first drive Edmond's has ever done. So, no pressure. The 600 is based on the 570S, but McLaren states that up to 25% of the parts are new. LT stands for long tail. This car has grown by all of 2.9 inches, which is about that. There there's a new fixed carbon fiber rear wing for aerodynamic downforce, upgraded suspension pinched from the 720S, carbon ceramic brakes and bespoke Pirelli tires. Then, of course, is the signature feature shared with the 675 LT. These exhaust now protrude from the engine bay instead of being sat underneath with the diffuser. They're hot, and yet very, very cool. Inside it's really a case of less is more. Ditching most of the carpet it has helped save 13 pounds. And these optional seats, pinched from a center hyper car, save an extra 50 pounds. In this trim that you can see here, McLaren reckons the 600 LT is 220 pounds lighter than the equivalent 570S-- about the same as a bulbous buddy. [MUSIC PLAYING] Hour to go before the run starts, so time to get the onesie on. This is the famous Goodwood Festival of Speed Drivers Club, where you tend to get changed next to somebody famous. Last time for me, it was Emerson Fittipaldi. And I tell you, never meet your hero in tired, blue underwear. It's not good. McLaren's insurers are demanding that I'm joined by one of their race drivers, Rob Garofall. But what he's supposed to do from the passenger seat is anyone's guess. Maybe he's just here to witness the crash. [ENGINES REVVING] The engine is McLaren's familiar 3.8 liter, twin turbo V8. But it's been re-tuned to deliver 592 horsepower and 457 pounds feet of torque. McLaren's claiming zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds, and a quarter mile in just 10.0. Enough to challenge Lamborghini's Huracan Performante. So it's hard to estimate just how big this event has become. It's just extraordinary, terribly British, as well. This is Lord March, or the Duke of Richmond as he is now. He's been promoted. This is his private driveway. It's 1.16 miles long. And the record was set by Nick Heidfeld in a McClaren Formula One car back in 1999. But no danger of threatening that today. [ENGINE REVVING] Man, this thing's fast. [ENGINE REVVING] [INAUDIBLE] Full bull ahead. Trying to keep it out of the hay bales. I remember which way it goes. Finish line flat. Fourth gear. Oh, boy. So that is the Goodwood hill climb. I thought I'd better shut up and concentrate. [MUSIC PLAYING] So there we go. The Goodwood hill climb, in all of 60 seconds. Last, probably. ROB GAROFALL: Short and sweet. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Short and sweet. Kept it out of the wall, bit of smoke off the line, but what a toy this is. That's probably the fastest road test I've ever done. That's a little taste of what it can do. Fabulous. A real privilege. ROB GAROFALL: Good job. Well done. ALISTAIR WEAVER: So that was a hell of an experience. And this is clearly a hell of a car. McLaren is only going to build around 600 versions of the LT coupe, and then another 600 that the Spider version will launch later in the year. So it may well appreciate in value just like the 675LT did. If any car can be a $240,000 bargain, this might just be it. We'll have to wait till we get it back to the US on road and track to give you a definitive judgment. But I can tell you this. If you're lucky enough to buy one of these cars, don't just lock it in a garage. Drive it, please. If you want to see more fun stuff like this, subscribe to our YouTube channel.

    Edmunds Editor-in-Chief and VP of Editorial, Alistair Weaver, gets an exclusive first drive of the 2019 McLaren 600LT during the famous 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed in England.

Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
