The McLaren 765LT Priced At $358,000 To Start

The McLaren 765LT is a McLaren 720S Plus. We want to drive one now.

  • Only 765 of these supercars will be built.

  • The twin-turbo V8 makes 755-horsepower.

  • This is the latest “long-tail” McLaren.


No, we need to drive one now. Even if we were the biggest auto-media outlet in the world, we couldn’t drive one for a few reasons. First, we’re still all on lockdown and two, series production of the McLaren 765LT beings in September this year if all goes according to plan.

The plan, in this case, involves what is nothing short than an already fantastic McLaren 720S getting the once over for more of everything. The already healthy twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 sees its power climb to 755-horsepower and torque, to 590 lb.-ft. from 710 and 568 respectively. The standard 7-speed dual-clutch transmission gets “Formula 1-grade” materials and, all said, helps the 765LT reach 60mph in 2.7 seconds. Also helpful is the fact that the car is now 176lbs lighter than the 720S.

The list of standard features includes louvered carbon fiber front fenders, forged 10-spoke alloy wheels, a front-end lift system, and much more. More importantly, the owner can send his or her 765LT to MSO for Defined and Bespoke options.

Before you jump on a 765LT, know that the odds in favour of a spider before long are great, so plan ahead. Speaking of plans, McLaren should be introducing a replacement for the 570S from the Sports Series by year’s end. It seems that the new car will sport a plug-in hybrid powertrain built on a twin-turbo V6 instead of a V8.
