The next longtail is here in the form of the new McLaren 765LT. Joining the Mclaren Super Series lineup, this new model is lighter, quicker and faster than the 720S model.
The 765LT relies on a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine (McLaren M840T) for power. In total, it pushed out 755 bhp and 590 lb-ft of torque. Such power can propel the 765LT from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and 0 to 124 mph in 7.2 seconds.
McLaren notes that the 765LT has 15 percent quicker in-gear acceleration than the 720S, as well as the fastest lap times of any Super Series model. This kind of speed is helped out by the 765LT weight of just 2,952 lbs (DIN weight), 176 lbs less than the 720S Coupe. McLaren accomplished this weight through the application of advanced carbon fiber technologies for body components, a titanium exhaust system and more.
Now, onto its style, which is impeccable. There’s no better place to start than the rear of the 765LT– it’s a longtail after all. A menacing quad-exhaust exhaust system rests in the rear of the 765LT in a straight line. Above the exhaust is the larger “Longtail” active rear wing while the lengthened rear diffuser is below. Upfront is longer front splitter, as well as a new front bumper. All of these body components were crafted out of carbon fiber, saving weight and adding strength to the body.
McLaren is set to create 765 examples of the 765LT. Pricing is set to be announced shortly.
