McLaren on Thursday unveiled a new member of its Sports Series.

Called the 600LT, the car is a new hardcore variant plugging the gap between the 570S and the 720S from the Super Series. LT, which stands for Longtail in McLaren-speak, is the British automaker’s designation for track-focused road cars, and the 600LT is only the third McLaren to wear it.

Like the previous F1 GTR LT and 675LT, the 600LT brings a combination of more power and less weight to the table. Loosely based on the 570S (McLaren says around a quarter of the parts are new), which itself is no slouch, the 600LT also benefits from optimized aerodynamics and enhanced driver engagement.
