McLaren has reduced the weight of the 675LT by 99.99 percent.

Unfortunately the result isn’t a car that can be driven and enjoyed, but rather one that serves as eye candy. The 1:43 Minichamps model of the 675LT is the latest model to market, featuring a Chicane Grey exterior and weighing just 0.26 pounds (0.12 kilograms).

The new McLaren 675LT model car is one of many that the British automaker offers, including a 1:18 scale model of the McLaren 570S Coupe edition, handcrafted by Italian family run business Tecnomodel. The Vermillion Red model boasts two-tone red leather and dark grey alcantara seats, along with gloss black wheels and red brake calipers. The collectible 570S will be limited to just 50 units.

The models are available at selected McLaren Automotive and various specialist retailers as well as online shops.
