Social media was set abuzz after photos of a sleek McLaren 675LT made rounds on Instagram.

No doubt, the photos of the car have gained thousands of comments and reactions since they dropped on the internet.


Taking to Instagram, popular car spotter RTM Supercars South Africa posted photos of the car and captioned them, “DELTA RED 675LT. This McLaren 675LT was the first example to reach our shores and is one of the least-seen examples in the country…The question is, would you take this or a 765LT?”

RTM Supercars South Africa added, “It’s one of our favourite cars ever made and undoubtedly one of the best driver cars of all time.”

The car is one of the few that call South Africa home. Rumour mill has it that the Delta Red McLaren 675LT is arguably one of the first 675LTs to make their way to South Africa.

Against the post, petrolheads quickly flooded the comments section with their two cents. Some gave the McLaren 675LT a nod, while others were quick to implicate its price tag into the mix.

No doubt the car costs a fortune due to its exclusivity. How much is a McLaren 675LT in South Africa? There are only two McLaren 675LTs on the market in South Africa. However, their prices are unknown since they are sold on a price-on-a-request basis.

A 2016 Coupe has a base price tag of R5 million in several dealerships dotted around the globe. However, prices of rare exotic cars have ballooned over the years due to the year of manufacture, trims and model.


  • Only 500 units made it on the market.
  • Twin Turbo Engine
  • 7-speed SSG dual-clutch gearbox

The car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reach 200km/h in 7.9 seconds. It boasts a top speed of 330km/h. However there are several lines with the 675LT model. The other three models of the 675LT include:

  • 675LT Spider – 500 units made.
  • 675 Spider Carbon Series – 25 models in the world
  • 688 HS – 25 units in the world


However, the car is one of the recently spotted McLarens in South Africa. Some of the spotted McLarens include:

  • R5 million McLaren 570S
  • One of the 500 ever-made McLaren Sennas

Well, let’s dive into some of the cars that have left many in awe, not only because of their price tags but also because of their exclusivity.

  • R150 million Pagani Imola
  • R20 million Pagani Huayra
  • R13 million Rolls-Royce Black Badge Cullinan
