The McLaren 600LT is a limited-run, track-focused variant of the McLaren 570S, and is the ultimate model of the Sports Series.

In June 2018, McLaren unveiled the top-of-the-line sports series variant online. The car, called the 600LT is based on the 570S and is the third McLaren production car to receive the longtail treatment. Inspired by the 675LT and the F1 GTR Longtail, the body of the car has been extended by 73.7 mm (2.9 in). The car also features enhanced aerodynamic elements such as an extended front splitter and rear diffuser, new side sills, and an aero-enhancing fixed rear wing for increased downforce.
McLaren claims that 23% parts on the 600LT are new as compared to the 570S. The carbon fibre monocoque utilised in the 600LT is modified and this combined with the extensive use of carbon fibre in the roof along with the cantrails and front fenders, results in a weight saving of 96 kg (212 lb) over the 570S, with the total weight amounting to 1,247 kg (2,749 lb). Another distinguishing feature of the 600LT is the lightweight titanium exhaust system which is mounted on top of the rear of the car which harks back to its original application in the Senna. The interior features sports bucket seats from the P1 and Alcantara trim but can be optioned with the much lighter bucket seats found in the Senna. The 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine utilised in the 600LT is tuned to produce a maximum power output of 600 PS (441 kW; 592 hp) (hence the 600 in the name) and 620 N⋅m (457 lb⋅ft) of torque, achieving a power-to-weight ratio of 479 PS per tonne.
The McLaren 600LT was added in the 2019 Spring Update as a high-end Class S car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1321
- MAX rank: 1639 (+318)
- This was changed to 1595 (+274) in the 2019 Halloween Update
- MAX+PRO rank: 1860 (+221)
- This was changed to 1860 (+265) in the 2019 Halloween Update
- Tuning Kit bonus: +68
- This was changed to +56 in the 2019 Halloween Update
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 539
- Upgrade rank percentages: 1.6/72.3/1.6/24.5
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/11/14.5
At MAX PRO, the 600LT has quick acceleration, high top speed, good handling, tight drift radius, and acceptable nitro efficiency. In multiplayer, it closely rivals the 2018 McLaren X2, Ferrari FXX K, Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4, Koenigsegg Jesko and Bugatti Divo.
Though inferior to the 2018 McLaren X2, it is competitive with its well-rounded performance at MAX+PRO. Should a McLaren-only event appear, the 600LT will be among the best choices, alongside the X2.
As of the 2020 Halloween Update, the McLaren 600LT can be purchased for 4,000,000 which was previously only obtainable from its R&D event. Between November 29 - December 2, 2019, it could be purchased for 18,000.
