While technically being part of their entry level range, the McLaren 600LT and 600LT Spider is still a serious piece of kit with a massive 592 horsepower under the hood, dealing an impressive 0-60mph time of just 2.8 seconds.
Sadly though the 600LT and 600LT Spider’s tenure is coming to an end, with the last few models being produced in McLaren’s headquarters in Woking, UK. All of the final models are going to be 600LT Spiders, with twelve of these being destined for sale over the pond in the USA. As a result of this, McLaren has decided to turn these into MSO special editions for their American customers.
This special edition 600LT Spider is going to named the ‘Segestria Borealis’, which is a reference to the Segestria Florentina, a black venomous spider with green fangs.
The team over at McLaren have utilised this colour scheme on the new 600LT Spider Segestria Borealis, including a pair of green stripes running the length of the vehicle, which is supposedly meant to mimic the fangs of the spider.
Now for the important bit, how much do you need to get your hands on the spidey car? You’ll need a cool $275,500 (£223,565.50), which roughly equates to around $20,000 (£16,199) more than the usual 600LT Spider. However, you’re not just getting a Spiderman-esque 600LT for your extra $20,000 as there is a host of optional extras involved too, including the MSO Clubsport Pack, McLaren’s Track Telemetry System, parking sensors, a Bowers and Wilkins audio system, rearview camera and even a lift system coming as standard with the 600LT Spider Segestria Borealis.
Now if you, like us, are sad to be seeing the 600LT and 600LT Spider going away to pasture, fear not as McLaren is already working on the next generation of its renowned sports series. The brand new range is expected to appear sometime in 2021 and includes a V6 based hybrid powertrain.
For all things McLaren, stick with Grand Tour Nation.
