The new 600LT Spider comes to Singapore, combining the acclaimed track-honed dynamic excellence of 600LT Coupe with the added exhilaration of open-air driving.

12 Jul 2019 | Local News : Singapore

The first McLaren 600LT Spider has arrived in Singapore and made its debut on the 4 July 2019. To mark the occasion, McLaren Singapore hosted an intimate cocktail event at the McLaren Singapore showroom which was attended by McLaren owners and guests of McLaren.

Dramatic lines and striking lime green paintwork make the 600LT Spider standout even amongst the supercar crowd
The McLaren 600LT Spider stood out from the crowd with its visually dramatic lines and striking paintwork in lime green and contrasting black. The retractable hardtop roof promises to offer the driver an enhanced Sports Series Longtail experience, as well as the enjoyment of open-air driving and an amplified aural and visual excitement due to the unique top-exit exhausts.

The fifth car to carry the Longtail name, the new convertible fully embodies the McLaren Longtail philosophy of increased power, reduced weight, optimised aerodynamics, track-focused dynamics and limited availability. It also brings a new dimension of excitement over the 600LT Coupe without compromise to the dynamic purity of the most performance-focused car in the Sports Series lineup - a retractable hardtop to give the choice of open-air driving.

Taking full advantage of the strength of the carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis has ensured that the new Spider has dynamic abilities and performance on par with the 600LT Coupe, for a weight premium of just 50kg and with no additional structural strengthening required.

The three-piece retractable hardtop roof can be easily lowered or raised with a push of a button at speeds of up to 40km/h. An electrically-operated, glazed wind deflector can be activated independently of the hardtop, to reduce buffeting or increase ventilation or simply to allow more of the exhaust sound into the cabin. Incorporating technology proven in the 650S, 675LT and 570S Spiders, the hardtop roof is more secure and wear-resistant than a fabric alternative would be, as well as offering Coupe-like cabin refinement when in the raised position.

When lowered, the roof stows elegantly with the assistance of soft-close technology beneath a tonneau cover located behind the seats; with the roof raised, this tonneau storage area provides an additional 52 litres of luggage space.

The 600LT Spider benefits from the same portfolio of performance enhancements that has proved irresistible to 600LT Coupe buyers. The electronic control systems of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 engine have been revised, the cooling system uprated and the shorter exhausts tuned to liberate more power. The engine produces the same 592bhp and 620Nm of torque in the Spider as it does in the Coupe. This performance allows the 600LT Spider to reach 100km/h from a standstill in 2.9 seconds, with 200km/h achieved in just 8.4 seconds, a near-indistinguishable 0.2 seconds slower than the Coupe. The maximum speed is 324km/h with the roof raised, or 315km/h with it lowered.

Super-Lightweight Carbon Fibre Racing Seats from the McLaren Senna are available as an option, either on their own or within the MSO Clubsport Pack, and further weight-saving measures include the option to delete the audio and climate control systems in order to shave off every kilogramme possible.

The McLaren 600LT Spider is available for orders now. Like the McLaren 600LT Coupe, the McLaren 600LT Spider will be a limited production model. The price starts from $889,000 (excluding COE).
