If you havenít looked at McLaren up close, sat in, or driven one you really owe it to yourself to do so. The technology, construction, and materials are on another level, they sound great and go like helll. Plus, I actually enjoy walking into the dealerships. Thatís enough for me to give it a go.

And lets face it, if Porsche would actually sell me the cars I want and the majority of dealers werenít yanking my chain we wouldnít be having this dialogue. Unfortunately Porsche ainít making enough cars and there arenít enough dealerships like Fresno Porsche out there treating customers with respect so there it is.

Looking forward to seeing blue flames in the rear view mirror on the first night run. 🔥

P.S. Macca does do the occasional Ring road trip: https://newatlas.com/nurburgring-mcl...ap-time/49744/
+600

I'd be more into a 600LT at <$300K and without all the Porsche ADM BS than play the GT game, beg to buy a car etc. Plus it looks better. I am not a track rat but not a Turbo S guy either. I think my next car after the Peformante will be a Macca. I love the look of 600LT. Can have C2S for pottering around town. plus 600 for less than the price of a GT2RS. I need to still watch $$

Just heard today, that there aren't many if any 600lt allocations left (coupe) :/ That didn't last long. The spider coming out has a few spots I'm sure still though.

I am interested in the 600LT and while doing an image search I found a series of recently uploaded photos of a gray car which I assume to be the exact car that did the Goodwood hillclimb and could be seen revving its engine to spit the flames from the exhaust. Looks like the left exhaust pipe melted?

that's not melted, that's the sound generator...they use the little slits in the exit of the pipe to create some sexier noises.

Roof scoops, are worth their weight in gold. I love roof scoops.. had an exige with one and In my mind it became a mclaren f1 or an f50GT. If you can roof scoop.. do whatever possible to roof scoop.

If nothing else, then do it for the sound. if the roof scoop on 600LT the same or similar sound effect that it has on the P1, or a 675LT with the MSO scoop, then it's worth it no matter the cost . Skip the carbon fiber, slip the special paint, skip all the options.. but get MSO to fit a roof scoop. . in those two cars there is massive intake noise, and blowoff valve noise.. basically in brings a normally boring mclaren sound alive.

I don't know what MSO will charge for a roof scoop on a 600LT.. but it should add significantly to the auditory experience. I'm biased as I love roof scoops.. I'm a big fan of another brand's also.. (Pics i took of Pagani roof scoops during my gt3 european delivery where I participated as a support vehicle to their rally)

More weight at the worst (highest) place possible. What does that thing do?

MSO Roof Scoop for the 600LT is $30,389, but requires MSO Carbon Roof and Cantrails, McLaren Track Telemetry, and full Alacantara interior in addition. I have all those options already because of the Clubsport Pro Pack (which includes the carbon roof and cantrails, Sena seats, Carbon interior, front Carbon fender louvers, harness bar, 6-point harness, and titanium bolts. Already have the telemetry and Alcantara interior too. So just gotta add th Scoop. Would bring price from $285k to $313k because I would eliminate the upgraded stereo if I add the Scoop. First McLaren, so weary of depreciation, but at the end, even at $313k with Scoop, itís less than the GT2RS base msrp price, so will probably add it. Plus, I plan to track the $h*t out of it, itís gonna depreciate like crazy anyways, but itíll sound amazing

Just put in my 600lt spec today, ended up at 279 and delivery in November...did the louvers and fenders in carbon (ugh) but left the rest of the exterior carbon out as it's mainly appearance vs any performance benefit. The scoop was the one thing I was really thinking about but I don't love the way it looks on the MSO X (vs the 675LT which I do love) and I'd have to put in like 45k with what needs to be in it to have it...which for this car at it's "bargain" level seems like it could bring it into dangerous territory. I don't think the car specced under 290k will have any real resale repercussions short of a terrible paint...above...that's an interesting question...either way, this thing is going to be a riot.
