Introducing the stunning new McLaren 765LT.
McLaren has revealed the next chapter of its ‘Longtail’ story with the global unveiling of the new 765LT.
This incredible machine produces a whopping 755 bhp and 800 Nm of torque from its twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine. The McLaren 765LT powers from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds and 0-200km/h in 7.2 seconds.
Described as the most dynamically advanced and engaging LT model ever produced by McLaren, the 765LT produces even higher levels of performance on both the road and the racetrack!
Ultimately, the McLaren 765LT is 80 kilograms lighter than the 720S. It has been optimised with driver engagement, track-focused dynamics, improved aerodynamics and increased power in mind.
The transmission gearing has been optimised with 15% quicker in-gear acceleration than a 720S. Under McLaren testing it has produced the fastest lap times of any Super Series model.
McLaren 765LT: Lighter, quicker
The McLaren 765LT features high-performance, lightweight materials throughout with advanced carbon fiber technologies for body components. At just 1,229kg bone dry, the devil is in the detail. Specific weight-saving measures include a new titanium exhaust system and Formula 1-grade transmission materials, as well as thinner glass.
This exceptional machine includes a new LT carbon fiber aerodynamic package. The front splitter, front bumper, front floor, side skirts, rear bumper, rear diffuser and larger ‘Longtail’ active rear wing all improve performance.
McLaren has tweaked the 765LT Super Series chassis, too. It comes with bespoke LT springs and dampers and increased front track width, as well as lower ride height. The unique software programme supports state-of-the-art, linked-hydraulic Proactive Chassis Control II suspension.
It sits on 10-spoke ultra-lightweight forged alloy wheels with titanium wheel bolts and bespoke Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R circuit-bred tires.
The new McLaren 765LT features carbon-ceramic brake discs, calipers from the McLaren Senna and F1-inspired caliber cooling ducts for incredible stopping power.
The active 765LT rear wing, rear bumper and front floor are unique. All were designed, engineered and built at the McLaren Composites Technology Center (MCTC) in the United Kingdom. It marked the first uses of MCTC-produced carbon fiber body components in a McLaren road car.
The air-conditioning and audio system were initially removed to save weight but can be included at no extra cost. Just 765 units of the McLaren 765LT will be produced globally.
A good start to March for hypercar fans - McLaren's reveal came on the same day as the incredible Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport!
