Chief Test Driver at McLaren Automotive Chris Goodwin drove his first McLaren in 1997. The F1 GTR Longtail was the model he found himself behind the wheel of, making him one of the most qualified people on this planet to oversee creation of the successor to the Longtail name.
Luckily for us, McLaren Automotive has uploaded a video of this veritable expert explaining, in detail, exactly what went into the production of the 675LT.

While based on the existing 650S, this flagship car of McLaren’s Super Series is anything but simple improvements. As Goodwin describes in the video, uploaded to YouTube today, 100 kilos have been trimmed from the 650S’ dry weight, 33 percent of the car’s total components are new and 50 percent of the engine components are new.
