McLaren graciously made a 675LT, the track-focused and higher-powered version of the 650S, available to me for two days and 200 miles if I could make it to Los Angeles. The 675LT has 666 horsepower and a front suspension derived from McLaren’s ultimate sports car, the P1.
I’m neither a fool nor a schmuck, so when I couldn’t get one of my publishers to pop for the travel expenses, I covered it out of my own pocket (well, there were some credit cards involved too). I’m sure that I spent less that it would cost to rent a lesser supercar for a day, or even the cost of a supercar experience at a racetrack.
The 675LT is a remarkable car in so many ways. You can read my impressions over at The Truth About Cars.
