McLaren 675LT JVCKENWOOD Concept
Just unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the McLaren McLaren 675LT JVCKENWOOD Concept. The concept took a 675LT prototype and added JVCKENWOOD technology along with some Formula 1 touches to celebrate the brand’s 25 years in the racing series.
The reason they used a pre-production model was that production had not started on the model as of the time that the concept started to be built. Only 500 production 675LTs will be produced and they have already sold them all.
For the concept the McLaren worked closely with the Japanese team at JVCKENWOOD to install their CAROPTRONICS. The 675LT has very lightweight construction which required that the interior be reworked to make sure it had the expected finished look.
The main technology upgrades are a Heads Up Display (HUD) and electric side and rear view mirrors that use cameras. The removal of the side mirrors helps improve the already good aerodynamics of the 675LT and it also reduces weight.
Highlighting the car’s interior is the steering wheel. It looks like it belongs on a race car and for good reason. It is taken directly from the McLaren P1 GTR, one of the most exclusive customer racing machines out there.
The car can be seen at CES from today until the 9th with a special demonstration tomorrow (the 7th). If you are heading to CES, make sure to check out this one of a kind McLaren.
