McLaren 765LT Spider is a track-ready drop top with 755 hp

  • McLaren unveiled the 765LT Spider Convertible, which features a retractable carbon fiber hard top that can be raised or lowered in 11 seconds.
  • The 765LT Spider is powered by a twin-Turb0 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 755 horsepower, and McLaren says it will go 60 mph in 2.7 seconds.
  • Orders are now available for $ 382,500.

    The McLaren 765LT, the slimmed-down, route-oriented long-tail counterpart to the 720S, is the third fastest car in our annual Lightning L test with a time of 2: 38.4 on the Grand Course of the Virginia International Raceway. That is not the only achievement of the VIR. It also hit the fastest speed we’ve ever recorded – 174.6 mph – on the front straight. Now there is a Spider convertible model that, like the coupe, is limited to 765 units.

    Its one-piece retractable carbon hardtop can be raised and lowered in 11 seconds (faster than the 675LT Spider) and can be operated at speeds of up to 50 km / h. McLaren says it offers more headroom than the coupe, even with the top down. The Spider also has an electric rear window that can be lowered even with the roof open, like the 720S Spider (or the Toyota 4Runner), and you have to pay extra for air conditioning or a sound system. The 765LT Spider is 108 pounds heavier than the coupe, says McLaren.

    The Spider is still powered by McLaren’s M840T twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that puts out 755 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque when paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. McLaren says the Spider will go 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, just like the coupe. In our test of the 720S Spider, we hit 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. The 765LT Spider is equipped with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires and has the same weight savings and aerodynamic elements as the coupe.

    McLaren will only build 765 units of the 765LT Spider, and it’s available to order starting now, starting at $ 382,500.
