The 675LT’s exterior gets unique styling cues like an extended carbon fiber front splitter, an extended door blade with additional cooling intake and circular twin titanium exhaust pipes. The active ‘Longtail’ Airbrake is 50 percent bigger than the one fitted to the 650S yet, due its carbon fiber structure, is actually lighter. The 675LT weighs in at 2,711 pounds – 220 pounds lighter than the 650S.

The upgrades include new, more efficient turbos, detail design changes to the cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds, new camshaft and lightweight connecting rods, and a faster-flowing fuel pump and delivery system. The 675LT will speed from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 205 mph.
