Aerodynamic stability. Instant responses. You see it in the stance 5mm lower at the front. In the widened front track. The dramatic side air intakes inspired by the rule breakingprodigious McLaren 675LT. In profile, its elongated rear tells you that this is an LT to the core. The new active rear wing wing is a carbon fibre masterwork. Created at the McLaren Composite Technology Centre (MCTC), it generates huge downforce for ultimate stability and super-short stopping distances. Every Longtail is shaped by the spirit of rebellion. An obsession with going faster. Being better. Questioning everything and refusing to compromise. This extreme ethos inspires the design of the 765LT in every way. Its all about purposeful aggression.
Where, when and how you want it. So every last drop of the 765PS available can be put to thrilling good use. This attention-grabbing power comes from a re-engineered version of the the same hardcore 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 that propels the McLaren 720S. But here it Designed with a range of updates that generates an extra 45PS. And a phenomenal 800Nm of torque.
Handling that rewrites the rules. Electrifies. Total connection between car and driver. Everything important is enhanced by lightness. So extreme measures are used to cut weight. Every Longtail is defined by this uncompromising attitude. Which is why the 765LT weighs just 1,339kg. 80kg less than the lightweight McLaren 720S. The new, unique carbon fibre bodywork elements are incredibly light. The dramatic new all-titanium quad-exit exhaust system weighs just 10.9kg 40% lighter than if it were made of steel. The whole interior is pared back to the LT essentials. And huge savings are achieved with the new ultra-light 10-spoke alloy wheels
765PS. Enough power to change the game. To make history. Because the 765LT is the most powerful LT model ever. It raises the bar. And rewrites the rules. The McLaren -designed 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 produces 45PS more than the mighty 720S. A number that sounds far less shocking than it feels. But in a 1,339kg car with such singular, obsessive purpose you quickly leave the numbers behind. Nothing prepares you for the feeling. Intoxicating, focused power. Delivered with emphatic, savage precision. Deep reserves of torque help to make the 765LT tractable, flexible, ultimately usable. 800Nm from 5,500rpm to be precise. But this is about much more than numbers.
Bespoke carbon fibre body panels create a unique and thrilling silhouette. While a new active rear wing defines the Longtail profile. It boldly signals the rarity and extreme character of the 765LT. But as ever, form strictly follows function. This ingenious feat of engineering from the McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) maximises downforce and decreases stopping distances. The lowered front suspension and widened front track add menace and poise while ensuring extra sensory handling on road and track. Look at the 765LT and youll know. From its aggressive new facial signature. To that extended active rear wing. This is a whole new chapter in a story of relentless performance.
Driver and car as one. A pure, undiluted connection. Every part of the 765LT is designed to make this relationship more telepathic than ever before. Beyond blistering performance and inspiring chassis dynamics, engagement is heightened in many ways. Sensitive tactile electro-hydraulic steering now has an even quicker rack. And a stiffened steering torsion bar. Responsiveness is instant and true. The cabin is alive with sound and feel from the stunning powertrain. Each sensation is made more vivid by classic LT elements. Like the stiffer engine mounts and polycarbonate glazing. While the dramatic new quad-exit full-titanium exhaust gives spine-tingling voice to all 765PS.
