McLaren delivers ‘chameleon’ 765LT to customer
A one off McLaren 765LT with color shifting paintwork has been delivered to a customer who probably thought that the model isn rare enough. The car was customized by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) bespoke division.
Twenty five percent of 765LT examples going to the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region feature “extensive personalization and bespoke content from MSO,” and this chameleon like sportscar is just one of them.
The British marque calls the hue “MSO Cerberus Pearl paintwork,” a mix of blue, purple, gold, and orange. These highlight the “uncompromisingly lightweight engineering philosophy” of the company.
“Enhancing the visual drama” even further are a fully functional roof scoop, 10 spoke ultra lightweight wheels in black finish.
Today, MSO offers a complete tailoring service for any McLaren model. MSO Limited also creates limited run and special editions, while MSO Heritage maintains the brand’s legacy models such as that F1.
Said to be lighter, more powerful, and with even higher levels of performance on both road and track than LT predecessors, the 765LT is the latest in a line of Longtail McLarens.
The brand said that the car opened a new chapter in the Longtail story that began with the McLaren F1 GTR race car in the 1990s, and brings the qualities found in every LT.
These qualities are “extreme design, driver engagement, track focused dynamics, minimized weight, optimized aerodynamics, and increased power.” The LT promise of being “limited to the few” is also fulfilled, with just 765 individually numbered cars available globally, which are all spoken for.
The new 765LT is the “most powerful and responsive road legal McLaren LT to date.” Its four liter twin turbocharged V8 “M840T” engine delivers peak power of 765hp at 7,500rpm, and a maximum torque of 800Nm at 5,500rpm.
The numbers translate to acceleration figures of 2.8 seconds from zero to 100kph, and 7.2 seconds from when the speed is upped to 200kph.
