McLaren 765LT Performance Figures Confirmed As Production Commences

The first customer-ordered examples of the new McLaren 765LT are now being hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, UK. Deliveries of the new McLaren ‘Longtail’ – the most extreme McLaren Super Series model to date – will begin at the end of this month.

Just 765 individually-numbered cars will be offered globally to customer order with 2020 production fully allocated and expressions of interest far exceeding total production.

The McLaren 765LT incorporates all the renowned McLaren LT attributes, including driver engagement, minimized weight, track-focused dynamics, optimized aerodynamics and increased power. A comprehensive engineering program of weight reduction has resulted in the superlight 765LT tipping the scales at 176lbs* lighter than the already class-leading 720S. The 765LT’s bespoke aerodynamics features carbon fibre panels manufactured for the first time at the McLaren Composites Technology Centre in the Sheffield area, plus a ‘Longtail’ active rear wing.

The combination of the light weight (2,709lbs at minimum dry weight) and the extreme power and torque of the 4.0-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 McLaren engine – 755bhp and 590lb ft respectively – underpins the incredible acceleration of the 765LT. As well as the expected sub-three second 0-60mph, the new LT is capable of reaching 124mph from standstill in just 7.0 seconds – 0.2 seconds ahead of target. Standing quarter-mile acceleration is similarly impressive at 9.9 seconds – again, better than expectations.

The first examples of cars specified by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) are being shared with customers. Operating to its established principle of always pushing the art of the possible, MSO have created a number of innovative and complex paint techniques which showcase a whole new level of personalization possibilities.

The Strata theme unveils a unique, graphical ‘art in motion’ paint scheme, inspired by a city skyline and realized in a three-color design requiring 390 hours of hand painting and finishing. Strata’s Azores orange base color is fused with Memphis Red and Cherry black, the two overlay colors running through the paint scheme in opposite directions to meet and blend on the panels of the 765LT’s dihedral doors. The unique paint scheme is further enhanced by a cohesive design language across the entirety of the car, both inside and out. The brake calipers form part of the color blend, the front calipers being Volcano Red and the rears Azores Orange, while the interior boasts a host of color-coded features from the MSO Bespoke range, including orange seat perforation and a push-to-drink system in Memphis Red.

A second theme based around a 3D honeycomb theme, called ‘GEOHEX’, features a striking combination of MSO Bespoke Tarmac Black and Tokyo Cyan paintwork with Visual Carbon Fibre components from the MSO Defined range along with a number of matching interior details. One of the most captivating projects yet is a car with a full Visual Carbon Fibre (VCF) body, a demonstration model of which has already been produced in response to customer enquiries. The demonstration model has been built in Clear Gloss Carbon Fibre to demonstrate the purity and intricacy within the weave alignment. The 765LT MSO Bespoke Carbon Fibre Body is available in a number of bespoke tints which can vary in complexity depending on the intended design.
