I'm starting a new thread, since now we have the first images.

http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-geneva-motor-show/new-666bhp-mclaren-675-lt-heading-geneva-motor-show

Price tag is estimated at $600,000 according to Autocar!? (It pulls 5g as well?) <-- This was intended as a joke to those wondering.
675PS and 100kg lighter.
I understand it will have Trofeo R tires.
New wheel design.
Round exhausts.
Rear mesh a la P1.
Bigger diffuser, side and front splitters.
Vented rear window?
The outer parts of the front bumper look different to me as well.
New parts in the engine.
Different turbochargers/suspension and some other mechanical bits.

I'm sure it will be an amazing car, but for now what I really like is what McLaren do with their "car camo". First it was racetracks and now is some respect paying :D

All sold out in the UK :) although maybe not if it's £400k,think more like £290..........
So I hear, will be interesting see how they have taken it to 700PS,? and no more lag, also any improvement's in the brake steer..

Hope it is 250 only..........

Can't think £400k is accurate. Maybe with lots of carbon and other stuff included? The 675 in general is a much better idea though, and I think they seem to have avoided the trap of making it like a GT3 car (massive wings everywhere).

I'm (cautiously) thinking this should be good news.

As I said it's around £290k :)

Lol!

Anyway. Back on topic.

Do like the lower stance. Suits it very much.
I'm sort of hoping it might go lower,but that's wishful thinking from a conversation I had 18 months ago with the head of product development,i don't think they could use that suspension system yet,its too soon ;)

I can confirm i'm not yet on Crack Ken,just the juice like you !!
