The McLaren 675LT Spider debuted in December 2015, and all 500 examples had reserved buyers by the end of the month – quite a nice holiday present. Now, what must be the weirdest car of the production run is up for sale in the United Kingdom for £285,000. The convertible supercar wears the wild shade MSO Amazon Colour Stream that is immediately reminiscent of the chameleon paint from so many bespoke cars in the 1990s. The paint shifts between shades of green, blue, and purple, depending on the angle that you view it.
The MSO Amazon Colour Stream added £29,045 to the 675LT Spider's price, and it wasn't even the least expensive option that the original buyer ordered. The droptop also got MSO's carbon fibre package that was £31,794. In addition, the louvred front wings were an extra £7,736. The car has also received paint protection film covering the whole body.
Driving a 675LT Spider already isn't a good way to blend into traffic, but it would be impossible for bystanders to miss the person driving this one. The machine has the performance to back up the eye-catching exterior, though. A twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 makes 666bhp and 516lb-ft of torque. Weighing just 1,270kg, the convertible can reach 62mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 203mph.
The 675LT Spider was McLaren's followup to the coupe version after the company said there was 'significant customer demand' for the droptop. Like its fixed-roof sibling, the vehicle featured revised aerodynamics with a larger front splitter and a larger active airbrake.
LT is short for 'long tail', and McLaren uses the moniker for the hardcore versions of its models. There are even more of them on the way. An ongoing teaser campaign suggests a 570LT might debut soon. In addition, McLaren confirms plans for there to be a 720LT eventually.
