Jenson Button Gets Himself a McLaren 675LT Spider, His Smile Tells the Story

Take a good look at the facial expression Jenson Button is showing in the screenshot we hare here - that is the face of a man who knows that only a few weeks separate him from the day when he gets to take delivery of his 675LT Spider.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen racers, as you'll get to see in the Shmee150-provided piece of footage at the bottom of the page, the McLaren-Honda F1 driver is getting a 675 Longtail Spider. You know, the one Bruno Senna drifted while dressed in a funny coat, all for promotional purposes, of course.

As those of you who follow the F1 racer closely know, Jenson already has a McLaren P1, so perhaps the Longtail will serve him well on the days when he wants to leave the hybrid powertrain feeling of his MP4-31... company car behind.

So no, the 2009 F1 champ isn't among the lucky few who got to order an MSO HS, but we have a feeling his 675 LT Spider will have an enormously deep connection with the McLaren Special Operations department.

The Grand Circus racer is going all out in the MP4-31 mentioned above as you are reading this, as the Singapore GP hostilities are ongoing - Jenson hasn't had his best season this year, as he currently occupies the 15th position (out of 24) in the driver standings.

And speaking of Shmee, as the vlogger explained when he talked about his unsuccessful attempt to add the 688 PS MSO HS to his garage, the process is more complicated than you might imagine.

Returning to Jenson Button, the racer is going all out in the MP4-31 mentioned above as you are reading this, as the Singapore GP hostilities are ongoing.

P.S.: If you're willing to check out what happens when a McLaren 675LT, as well as other Woking machines, get to pull some burnout and drifting moves, you should also pay attention to the second clip below.
