The McLaren 675 Long Tail is an ultra lightweight, track-focused evolution of the mainstream 650S model, and has the distinction of being the fastest car ever around the original ‘Top Gear’ test track. The substantial 675bhp offers blistering performance with 0-60 mph taking a nano 2.9 seconds and top speed is well over 200mph. The numbers built were restricted to just 500 cars, a mix of both Coupe and Spider versions, and the cars have proved to be so popular that they have regularly been traded at a premium over ‘list price’ ever since the car’s launch.
For a very few privileged customers, it was possible to order a car through McLaren Special Operations where some unique and extremely expensive options could be ordered on a bespoke basis. This particular car, ordered new in 2016 and delivered in June, was specified by rock legend and Jamiroquai frontman, Jay Kay, and is one of those ‘MSO’ examples featuring some amazing options which have resulted in, perhaps, the ultimate track-focused car in the McLaren range.
The unique colour scheme of Chicane Grey with Grey and Orange seating is complemented by the following factory-fitted extras which are in addition to the comprehensive standard specification:
Contrasting stitching in McLaren Orange, Roll Hoop, branded floor mats, car cover, fire extinguisher with warning triangle and first aid kit, parking sensors and rear parking camera, volumetric alarm, a ‘Noselift’ facility, ultra-lightweight 10-spoke Stealth wheels, ceramic brakes with orange calipers, a Meridian surround sound system, Mclaren track telemetry- App and cameras, Club Sport pack, Carbon fibre exterior upgrade pack with carbon fibre door mirror, Sports exhaust, Stealth pack, front bumper end-plate – front splitter – rear bumper – lower side intake – side intake – side skirt – wheel arch and rear diffuser all finished in carbon fibre, ‘Stealth’ badge set, soft-close doors, Alcantara embossed leather interior, McLaren orange embossed leather, sill panel in carbon fibre with brand logo, racing seats with passenger position adjustable, Carbon fibre interior upgrade, steering wheel in carbon black Alcantara with extended paddles, 4-point harness, air conditioning, outer seat embossed in McLaren orange with inner seat in carbon black Alcantara.
The McLaren Special Vehicle Operations department also added some unique features of their own including special louvred front wings (an £11,000 option) and a performance-enhancing roof scoop (or air intake) costing £30,000, MSO defined gloss black painted start button and orange ADP panel switches (£2,500), Carbon Fibre air-vent bezels (£1,444), MSO designed Carbon Fibre Steering Wheel (£3,086), and an MSO designed Carbon Fibre instrument bezel (£2,613),
The car was serviced in June 2017 at 1,564 miles by McLaren Ascot when it was just a year old and will be serviced again by McLaren Birmingham prior to this Sale.
Currently, this left-hand drive, one-off vehicle has covered just under 2,000 miles from new with its ‘petrolhead’ owner and is for sale with Silverstone Auctions.
