The base McLaren 600LT is equipped with a 3.8-liter biturbo eight, issuing 600 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. From zero to 100 km/h the car can accelerate in 2.9 seconds, and its maximum speed is 328 kilometers per hour.

In the studio, Hennessey conceived to release for the model three options for powertrain modifications, increasing returns to 719, 817 and 1016 horsepower. In the first case, the coupe can accelerate from zero to 96 kilometers per hour in 2.6 seconds, in the second – in 2.4 seconds, and in the third – in 2.1 seconds. The most powerful supercar will travel a quarter mile (402 meters) in 9.6 seconds. The speed of the car at the end of the straight line will be about 251 kilometers per hour.

The most powerful serial McLaren is now the model Speedtail. It comes with a 1050-strong hybrid powerplant that allows the car to accelerate from zero to 300 kilometers per hour in 12.8 seconds. The maximum speed of the coupe is 403 kilometers per hour. A total of 106 Speedtails will be released. All of them have already been sold on request.
