McLaren’s New 755HP 765LT Is Its Lightest & Fastest Longtail Supercar

McLaren’s Longtail line has become increasingly refined with each new iteration, and the company has consistently pulled out all the stops when it comes to the evolution and innovation of each successive platform. Now, the UK-based powerhouse has revealed the 765LT — its fastest, and lightest longtail to date.

The 765LT continues the company’s trek toward automotive dominance, fostering a powerful 755 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque, courtesy of its twin-turbocharged McLaren V8. It clocks in at 176-pounds lighter than the brand’s lauded 720S coupé, as well as 110-pounds below comparable platforms from other manufacturers. To achieve this, a menagerie of lightweight materials have been implemented, including a gratuitous number of carbon-fiber body and aerodynamic components, Formula 1-grade transmission materials, and polycarbonate glazing. But the exterior of the sleek Longtail isn’t the only part of the supercar to receive the treatment. Inside the cockpit, a handful of exposed carbon peripherals make their debut, working alongside a suite of carbon racing seats, entertainment systems — even some Alcantara detailing — to keep the car in a league of its own. Head to McLaren’s website to learn more; and while you’re there, inquire about the September 2020 release of the newly-revealed supercar.
