The Best Car I've Bought? Big Miles in My McLaren 675LT Spider

Πριν 2 μήνες

Exactly as planned, my McLaren 675LT Spider is properly back in action! Just two weeks since it returned to the garage, another 5,000km / 3,000 miles have been covered on this mega road trip so far. However, there's a long leg from Italy back up to Germany with plenty to discuss about what it's like to live on the road in a 675LT.
Having re-collected the McLaren 675LT only two weeks ago from Topaz Detailing after PPF installation to complete the extended process repairing some oxidisation issues on the front wings and bonnet, I promised that I would get it back on the road for a serious road trip and that is exactly what has happened. After departing the UK to Germany, attending the insane Koenigsegg event with Esser Automotive and many laps at the Nurburgring, it's now down in Italy on some amazing roads.
With plans taking quick u-turns thanks to new travel restrictions that have been introduced relating to France, after meeting up with PowerslideLover in the Dolomites, we've ventured over to Lake Como ahead of a mega drive back to Germany. Already having added 4,000km to the clock, it's another 800km drive from Como up through Switzerland to the Autobahn for a stretch to Frankfurt in order to take a voluntary and paid virus test, before reverting towards Stuttgart for the coming days.
However, the car is running perfectly! It may not be the most appropriate car for a massive tour of this nature due to the total lack of luggage space, crazy low front end, and loud, intense driving experience (apologies for the old man perspective), but on twisty roads, race tracks and the derestricted motorways it is an absolute delight. With the sun shining in Lake Como let me tell you more about living with the 675LT Spider on such a big adventure, before we make our way back towards Stuttgart where I left the SLS Black Series.
You can find the Shmee150 sunglasses here:
I can confirm the virus tests have since returned negative results as expected.
Thanks for watching, Tim

The miles are building fast on the 675LT on what is becoming a very big tour despite plenty of last minute enforced changes with new restrictions. With an 800km slog from Italy to Germany, let me show you what it's like to live with such a car on the road.

Nice video :)) Go over the Gotthardo pass instead through the tunnel, a lot of fun.. 2 or 3 weeks ago a Chiron crashed into a 911 on that pass while overtaking other cars at the same time... luckily nobody got hurt, but 3.5 mio damage :-/

Suggestion? Keep a pair of Bose noise canceling headphones in the car for those times when you have to take a long drive, cuts down on fatigue...

you have to remember slower cars on the Autobahn regularly to obey to the RECHTSFAHRGEBOT by flashing your lights...using the horn or driving alongside them and ask them why they are stupid...IT IS A NIGHTMARE HERE. someone might have gotten points on his license for following someone to becomes worse the further south you are...

And after a few days of sadness and quiet contemplation, I finally joined the land of the living. Again, thank you so much Tim for giving me a 22 minute escape. Cheers.

Hi Tim, you may remember the conversation we had about you leaving London and living in Germany full time while you were showcasing your new Mercedes GTR Pro and with a stunning back drop and yes you said you want to keep your vlogs fluid and I sort of get it but since then I have noticed you find reasons to leave London and back over to Germany, Switzerland etc. I could be wrong but may be your attractive lady friend has given you a nudge and has made you see all the positives and I also note that Tom (TGE) is looking to leave London and move to the Cotswolds. I again would urge to take a moment and stop and look around you what a stunning part of the world you spend a vast amount of time and you want to come back to London as Boris drives the U.K. into dark places. Well I wish you both well and have safe travels. All the very Best Alan B x

20yrs living in Germany and I still take care when Im back there and I see UK plates on the autobahn,UK drivers doing 110mph think theyre driving fast then are overtaken by an Astra or an A4 diesel. I was overtaken when cruising at 105mph on the A7 towards Denmark by a Dacia Sandero which has a theoretical top speed of 108mph, it's not de-restricted there either.

You should have taken the San Bernadino pass rather than the Gottard tunnel. A longer route, but a spectacular pass and a lot of fun. Also, you can do 6km above the limit in CH and not get a fine. Above that its a 60CHF fine for the first few kms, then it climbs rapidly and is means tested if you go crazy.
