McLaren need to stop churning out supercars so quickly – here’s another one since I wrote that
McLaren has revealed the 765LT, another extension to extensive line-up of supercars. This features 765bhp and 800Nm of torque from its twin-turbo V8, and is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds, and 0-124mph (200kph) in 7.2 seconds.
The emphasis is on lightweight and this car is 80kg lighter than the 720S at 1339kg.
There’s a new LT aerodynamic package, all in carbon fibre: front splitter, front bumper, front floor, side skirts, rear bumper, rear diffuser and larger ‘Longtail’ active rear wing.
It has bespoke LT springs and dampers; increased front track width; lower front ride-height and unique software programme for state-of-the-art, linked-hydraulic Proactive Chassis Control II suspension.
There’s 10-spoke Ultra-Lightweight forged alloy wheels, titanium wheel bolts and bespoke Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R circuit-bred tyres as standard. For stopping power it boasts Carbon-ceramic discs, calipers from the McLaren Senna and Formula 1-inspired, integrated caliper cooling ducts.
Quad-exit full-titanium exhaust system delivers a searing ‘LT soundtrack’, as well as a 40% weight-saving over a comparable steel system.
Motorsport-inspired interior design features carbon fibre racing seats, carbon fibre centre tunnel, exposed carbon fibre floor and lightweight Alcantara® throughout. Air-conditioning and an audio system are deleted as standard to minimise weight, but can be specified at no additional cost.
