The 755 HP McLaren 765LT Revealed

There you have it, the all-new McLaren 765LT, the next installment in McLaren’s LT history.

  • All-new McLaren 765LT broke cover;
  • Features a twin-turbo V8 pushing 755 hp;
  • Only 765 copies will be built.

During a livestream, in lieu of a Geneva Motor Show presentation, McLaren unveiled their next longtail model, the all-new 765LT. This next installment in their LT history is quite something and features its fair share of unique parts.

First off, the McLaren 765LT is powered by a 4.0L twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine developing 765PS (755 hp) and 800Nm (590 lb-ft of torque). The latter is paired with a 7 Speed SSG transmission with gearing optimized for throttle response and built with F1-grade materials. With the powertrain, the 765LT is able to achieve the 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and the 0-200km/h in 7.2 seconds.

The British carmaker says the 765LT will set the “fastest lap times of any McLaren Super Series model.” This is in part due to its lightness. The all-new McLaren 765LT tips the scale at 1,339kg or 80kg less than the 720S Coupé.

To achieve this weight reduction, McLaren used lightweight materials all around its new model. The 765LT features a new all-carbon LT aerodynamic package which includes the front splitter, front bumper, front floor, side skirts, rear bumper, rear diffuser and the larger ‘Longtail’ rear wing. Add to the list a set of ultra-light forged wheels wrapped around bespoke Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires.

In order to stop this LT around the track, McLaren installed some heavy-duty braking equipment. You can find on the 765LT a set of carbon-ceramic discs paired with calipers stolen from the McLaren Senna. The carmaker also added some integrated caliper cooling ducts, F1-style.

Inside, the cabin of the McLaren 765LT is all business with its carbon fibre racing seats, carbon fibre centre tunnel, exposed carbon fibre floor as well as touches of Alcantara. Furthermore, the track-ready 765LT comes standard with no air-conditioning or audio system but the manufacturer says they can be added at no additional cost.

If you want it, better hurry since only 765 copies will be made by the Woking-based company. All the McLaren 765LT will be individually numbered.
