Congrats! I think you'll get some good miles from the 675 before the 750LT shows up. My guess is you won't see it for another 3-4 years.

As for 675 vs 720. Though to answer that for you. For me it would be a no brainer because the 675 is too track oriented for NYC, but that is likely less of an issue if you live in the suburbs or in a country with good roads. Also, depends on how you use it.

I'm in the SF area. Horrible roads and freeways. Pretty excited to move up from the 650s... I wanted to feel the difference between the 650 and 675 as I read so much good stuff about the 675

Given you said 'traded' in your post, one assumes it's a done deal already so a bit late to worry about whether you should have waited for the P14/depreciation...?

just enjoy driving the 675, no owner has had a bad word afaik to say about it so far.

Congrats. The LT is amazing. Was going to trade mine for a 720S, but I cannot part with it. I reckon there is room for both!

NICE CHOICE!!!!!!!!!!!
You won't regret it. Whether you are located in NYC or Alpine, 675LT would always be the best choice over ANY vehicles under a mm USD.

That was my opinion as well. I definitely like the 675LT but the 720S is just so much more refined with the newer suspension and interior. Again, there's absolutely nothing wrong with the 675LT, just a preference.

IMO, the 675LT and LTS are the best looking Mclarens out. They fixed the rear end issues I never cared for on the 12c/650 while making the entire package more aggressive and exciting. Side-by-side, your car will always look better than a 720 and likely hold value better. The 720 is the newer tech though, likely faster, more comfortable, more modern and cheaper. Personally, I would go 720, but also wouldn't feel bad at all about that beauty you just got
