The McLaren 765LT
The McLaren 765LT is spoken for–sold out. With 765 examples made, this rarefied supercar for the streets is one of those products only a few people may claim ownership to. The “LT” stands for “longtail,” which pays homage to McLaren’s racing heritage at Le Mans and one of the most iconic race cars of all time, the McLaren F1 GTR. To make it a bit clearer, “LT” is to McLaren what “RS” is to Porsche, “ZR1” is to Corvette, and so on and so forth, basically implying that this is the limited edition, lightest weight, fastest, best, and most exclusive model of the lineup. Those that can do.
McLaren produces amazing cars. Period. If you have never driven one, it is really hard to explain how special they really are. On paper, the stats are very impressive, but behind the wheel, the symphony of racing heritage sings to the heavens as the driver is only limited by ability. One might compare a McLaren to a Ferrari, Porsche GT2 RS, and similar supercars, but it has a personality all its own. McLaren is McLaren, and the only way to understand that is to drive one.
The 765 LT boasts 755 horsepower and 590 lb.-ft. of torque from a twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This enables the 765 LT to an earthshattering, 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds, 0–124 mph in 7.0 seconds, and 0-186 mph in 18.0 seconds. I dare say there are few on the planet who could drive this car to its limits, but to be a passenger for that ride would be a story for life.
If you can, you should; why wouldn’t you? For those that know, that understand the legacy of McLaren, this car will be hard to beat, and over time, well, Google what a McLaren F1 goes for. For more information, visit mclaren.com.
