McLaren is looking to repeat the sell-out sales success of its high-performance 675LT, with plans to introduce a topless version next year.

In an interview with Dutch Newspaper De Telegraaf, McLaren confirmed that the 675LT Spider is on its way.

The Spider’s mechanical package will be adopted from the 675LT coupe which runs a 496kW/700Nm version of McLaren’s twin turbocharged 3.8 litre V8.

Thanks to the Long Tail treatment (where the 675LT derives its name) the coupe is capable of generating 50% more downforce than the 650S on which it is based.

Compared to the 650S the 675LT coupe is also 100kg lighter thanks to carbon fibre body panels, and weight-saving measures applied to the powertrain, glazing, wiring harness and interior.

While the Spider version won’t be able to achieve the exact same slender weight, it will still offer most of the coupe’s weight saving measures.

In the 650S, the Spider tips the scales at around 40kg heavier than the the coupe, but for 675LT Spider there’s every chance that the powered folding roof could be replaced by a lighter manual mechanism in keeping with the car’s lightweight ethos.

Acceleration times for the 675LT coupe are 2.9 seconds from 0-100km/h and onto 200km/h in 7.9 seconds. The 675LT Spider isn’t expected to deviate from those times.

As with its fixed roof sibling, a limited production run of 500 cars will be offered, expected to go in sale in europe in 2016.

Speculative pricing should see the 675LT priced somewhere around $45,000 to $50,000 more than the coupe version which sold in Australia for $657,000.
