See The McLaren 765LT Hit 150 MPH in Less Than 10 Seconds
McLaren upped the heat of performance earlier this year with the introduction of the 765LT. It’s a limited-build supercar that takes the greatness of the 720S and (sort of) makes it even better. The 765LT features several tweaks, updates, and improvements over the regular 720S, all of which result in an incredibly fast coupe. How fast? The last Carwow The YouTube video embedded above will show you.
McLaren still uses its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8, but in the 765LT it produces 755 horsepower (563 kilowatts) and 590 pound-feet (800 Newton-meters) of torque. This power is channeled to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. When the automaker announced the car, the company also revealed an impressive statistic sheet – from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.8 seconds.
All these performances are in full screen in the Carwow video when host Mat Watson goes from a standstill to 150 miles per hour (255 kilometers per hour) in 9.8 seconds. All of the car’s stats were impressive. He sprinted 2.8 seconds to 96 km / h and reached 160 km / h in just 5.1 seconds. Yes, it’s quick, but not surprisingly. Earlier this month, McLaren revealed the LT’s quarter-mile time, which is a rarity for any automaker, like 9.9 seconds, so CarwowThe numbers certainly add up.

Deliveries of the supercar were due to start this month, although it was announced before the coronavirus pandemic became mainstream. However, even though deliveries have started, don’t expect to see one on the road. McLaren is limiting 765LT production to just 765 units for the 2020 model year, and the automaker has to assemble each by hand. Its starting price of $ 358,000 seems like a steal when you factor in the car’s exceptional performance. It’s going to dominate on the drag track, and we can’t wait to watch these videos.
