    I have to disappoint you, Weissach was only involved with the Flex 7 seating system development, which was pretty innovative. They had nothing to do with the car itself (drivetrain, engine, chassis, etc.). Smiley

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    "McLaren has created this stunning one-off Gulf 675LT" (Top Gear)

    The 675LT is among the very highest points of the reborn McLaren Automotive – it’s savagely fast, has a delectable chassis balance and banishes the notion that McLarens are clinical speed capsules. The finest McLaren since the iconic F1? Even in the presence of the 720S and the Senna? Oof, tough call. Quite possibly.

    What a candidate for some racecar-inspired McLaren Special Operations treatment, then. And one owner with sterling taste has commissioned this Gulf Racing livery for their 666bhp, 205mph 675LT, with predictably standout results.

    Now, the baby-blue-with-orange Gulf colours are so attractive they could improve just about any object – try it on your fridge, toilet bowl or pets when you get home. But for McLaren, the hue holds special significance, after it was worn by the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ racing cars of the Gulf-Davidoff GTC team in 1996 and 1997.

    The team took overall victory in the 1996 BPR Global Endurance Series, and a GT1 class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans the following year. True aficionados of racing car decals might even remember that the Gulf-Davidoff F1 also carried the sponsorship of a certain ‘BBC Top Gear magazine’ on the flanks, just behind the dihedral doors, known to be worth three-tenths of a second per lap. At least.

    Applying the same paint finish – sans sponsor logos – to the 675LT took 1,000 man hours of MSO’s time, including painting the 20-spoke lightweight wheels in Dayglo Orange. This LT is also fitted with the optional MSO front arch louvres, carbon rear wing and the must-have roof scoop, as specced by the owner, whose initials appear stitched into the fixed-back carbon seats.

    A few flashes of orange and blue lift the interior, but it’s a pretty subtle cockpit in comparison to the searing exterior. We adore it. One of the greatest supercars of the 21st Century wearing one of the most attractive liveries of the 20th Century? Loving your work, MSO.

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    It simply amazes me, how many different variants McLaren can squeeze out in such short time.
    I mean Porsche is no better in this respect, but McLaren seems to do it even more quickly.

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    I love the idea of new cars coming all the time. The current cycle like at Porsche for example is mostly to extract maximum profit on the regular cars. Else the kind of do the same in the GTx cars...


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    So when McLaren come out with a variant its a new car but when porsche does it is not?

    Carlos from Spain:

    So when McLaren come out with a variant its a new car but when porsche does it is not? 

    Don't forget that there are significant differences between Porsche and McLaren, which has just built its 15,000 car.  That is something Porsche achieves approximately every 3 weeks.  As a result, Porsche has a significantly different investment schedule than McLaren.  In essence, McLaren is more suitable for Lean Design than Porsche.

    well McLaren struggles now big time with 1st of Sept here in the EU  - the dealers need register now all cars before that date......

    One major issue is Volkswagen Group having to certify all 200+ vehicles at the same time to comply with the new regulations.   There simply isn’t the resources available.  


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    I think the Urus had the particulate filter from the start if I'm not mistaken. Same goes to the new BMW M5.

    Yes, the whole thing is a disaster right now at VW Group. Many claim that they had enough time to adapt but the truth is that they were so occupied with the emissions scandal... Smiley No excuses though, they messed up.

    This is interesting, top mounted exhaust on the 600LT?

    copy/paste from 918 Spyder smiley


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    918 spyder looks different and is positioned behind the roof - McLaren uses the exhaust for aerodynamics - the rear wing gets the exhaust air to produce downforce for free.
