Limited-volume Mc Laren 765 LT Spider revealed the supercar is available to order now. Just 765 will be built to customer order – the same individually numbered total as the sold-out coupe.
The supercar has electrically operated, one-piece carbon fibre Retractable Hard Top (RHT) lowers or raises in just 11 seconds, at speeds of up to 50km/h (31mph), to enhance driving experience. Powered rear window allows searing ‘LT soundtrack’ from quad-exit, full titanium exhaust system to be enjoyed to the full, even with the roof in place.
765PS and 800Nm from 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 enables 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds, 0-100km/h (62mph) in 2.8 seconds and 0-200km/h (124mph) in 7.2 seconds. This is the fastest accelerating LT Spider ever – 15% quicker in-gear acceleration than 720S – with transmission gearing optimised for driver engagement. Even greater focus on minimising weight – 80kg lighter than 720S Spider at 1,388kg (DIN weight) and just 49kg heavier than 765LT coupe.
Renowned worldwide for the exclusive, luxury, high-performance supercars on which it has built its reputation over the past decade, McLaren Automotive today reveals another landmark model: the 765 LT Spider.
Complementing the 765LT ‘Longtail’ coupe unveiled last year – all of which are sold – the new Spider is McLaren’s most powerful-ever convertible supercar and brings highest-ever levels of driver engagement to the McLaren LT experience. Engineered in addition with the other core attributes intrinsic to any McLaren Longtail – minimised weight, track-focused dynamics and optimised aerodynamics – the 765 LT Spider has all of the class-leading abilities of the coupe and also meets the LT demand for exclusivity: just 765 cars will be available globally for customer order.
Carrying over the coupe’s dynamic and aerodynamic DNA with no structural compromise and only a minimal 49kg weight increase – primarily from the retractable hard top and accompanying operating mechanism – the 765 LT Spider weighs in at just 1,388kg (DIN weight), which is 80kg lighter than a 720S Spider and circa 100kg lighter than its closest comparable competitor.
The electrically operated, one-piece carbon fibre Retractable Hard Top (RHT) enables open-top motoring in just 11 seconds and operates at speeds of up to 50km/h, bringing the dramatic soundtrack of the quad-exit titanium exhaust system into the cabin to take driver engagement into another dimension.
“As we continue to build the LT sub-brand with the introduction of the new 765 LT Spider, it’s clear that our customers are increasingly attracted to the Longtail supercar proposition of exhilarating, extreme performance and limited availability. With all 765 examples of the 765LT coupe sold, it’s no surprise that as we publicly announce our new LT Spider, production capacity for 2021 is already filled,” said Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive.
