McLaren Releases Final 600LT Spider Based On A Real Spider
If you’ve wanted a McLaren 600LT Spider in North America but have been disappointed with them being sold out, here’s your chance to get one. Bear in mind though, if you’re at all arachnophobic, this McLaren Spider based on a real spider might not be for you.
The final 12 examples of the LT (Long Tail) are called the Segestria Borealis, after a poisonous spider with a unique color scheme. That theme is carried over to the 600LT, with an iridescent black paint that shimmers through deep green, purple and claret under different light. This is highlighted by the twin Napier Green stripes that run over the car, mimicking both the actual spider’s green fangs and the ‘Lime Green’ option for the standard 600LT Spider. That green is also found on the brake calipers, as well as in a unique spider web design on the rear wing, side mirrors and in the interior.
Besides the color combination, these 600LT versions are the same underneath, with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine good for 592hp and 457lb ft (620Nm) of torque that gets the car to 100kph in 2.9 seconds. These 12 cars also come as standard with the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) Clubsport Pack, which includes lighter carbon fibre seats, carbon fibre interior, titanium wheel bolts and carbon fibre front fender louvres. They also feature a Bowers and Wilkins 12-speaker audio system, track telemetry, rear view camera, parking sensors, volumetric alarm upgrade and vehicle lift to allow the nose of the car to be raised.
The 12 McLaren 600LT Spider Segestria Borealis versions – or ‘Spider Spider’, as McLaren calls it – are now reaching select dealerships in the U.S. with a base price of $275,500.
