McLaren Automotive is on fire coming off a massively successful 2018. They’re looking to keep the momentum going by introducing the 5th McLaren LT vehicle.

What is a longtail? An LT, in McLaren speak, is a philosophy of increased power, reduced weight, optimized aerodynamics, track-focused dynamics and limited availability. If this doesn’t read like the ultimate performance car recipe, we can’t possibly imagine how it could be better.

This next Longtail will follow the tradition that begin in 1997 with the McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail”. Nearly 20 years later, in 2015, McLaren Automotive revived the Longtail name with the 675LT Coupé followed by a 675LT Spider. The fourth “Longtail”, revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last July, was the 600LT Coupé.

It’s too early to guess what or where this LT will fit in McLaren’s ever-expanding line-up but we think it’ll be a 790 or 800LT based on the 720S using the Senna’s petrol engine output. Anyone have any other ideas? More than likely however, it’ll be a 600LT Spider.
