McLaren Automotive has announced that it will reveal a new model at this year's Geneva Motor Show in March, dubbed the 675LT.
To be the third model in McLaren's Super Series (the next rung up from the soon-to-launch Sports Series), the 675LT will be the ultra-high performance, track-oriented counterpart to the 650S and Asia-only 625C.
The name gives away its power output of 675 metric horsepower (496kW), while the 'LT' revives the Longtail designation given to the final version of the McLaren F1 GTR race car, which had extended bodywork to generate more downforce.
And that provides a pretty significant clue about what to expect when the covers come off at Geneva. An aggressive aero package is a given, as is reduced weight through a stripped-out interior.
The 675LT will only be offered as a coupe too, with no convertible model announced.
McLaren says the 675LT will be the "lightest, the quickest, and the purest version in the range", which will make it second only to the mighty P1 in the performance stakes.
Not to be outdone, the P1 will get a performance flagship of its own at Geneva too.
The P1 GTR (above) is scheduled to make its world debut in production guise alongside the 675LT, giving showgoers twice as many reasons to visit the McLaren stand.
Expect more details of the 675LT to be revealed as the Geneva Motor Show nears.
