McLaren's Fastest Ever Convertible Is Entirely Made From Carbon Fibre

Image Cache: McLaren has two unique cars on display at the Geneva Motor Show this year. McLaren’s skunkworks Special Operations group has created an all-carbon-fibre tribute to the outgoing P1, and there’s also a carbon-fibre-bodied bespoke version of the new 675LT Spider, McLaren’s fastest ever street legal convertible.

These two cars are beautiful. The bare carbon fibre looks great on the one-off McLaren P1, the amazing hybrid petrol-electric hypercar competing with the LaFerrari and Porsche’s 918 Spyder. And while the carbon fibre bodywork on the MSO-designed bespoke 675LT Spider is covered by a layer of Ceramic Grey paint, that doesn’t stop it being bonkers fast — zero to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds, zero to 200km/h in 8.1 seconds and a top speed of 326km/h. If you happen to be in Geneva when the show kicks off at the start of March, go have a look. [McLaren]
