McLaren Automotive, the maker of luxury high-performance supercars, recently completed delivery of a one-off, limited-edition, sold-out McLaren 765LT. The one-of-a-kind supercar comes with a plethora of exclusive personalization options carried out by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the brand's in-house customization department. The dramatic body is emphasized by the "color-changing" MSO Cerberus Pearl paintwork, which includes shades of blue, purple, gold and orange. The front splitter, the rear bumper, the side skirts as well as the mirror housings and air intakes are made of glossy carbon fiber, which underlines the uncompromising lightweight construction philosophy of the traditional British company. A fully functional MSO Defined roof scoop, 10-spoke ultra-lightweight wheels in glossy black and the McLaren orange-colored brake calipers further enhance the visual spectacle.

The extensive personalization continues inside the McLaren 765LT, with satin carbon fiber finishes and bespoke door panels, speaker surrounds and seat belts all done in McLaren Orange - a subtle nod to the brand's racing tradition. The interior, which is geared towards the race track, is complemented by the MSO Defined Titanium seatbelt retractors and six-point seat belts.
"We are honored to complete the delivery of this highly personalized copy of the McLaren 765LT to one of our discerning customers. This extraordinary creation is a true showcase of the skills and craftsmanship that the McLaren Special Operations team represents and that continues to inspire our current and future owners. Over 25% of all McLaren 765LT destined for Europe, the Middle East and Africa will have a high level of personalization and we look forward to completing the final regional deliveries of this sold out supercar by the end of the summer." Brett Soso, Managing Director - Europe, Middle East & Africa
MSO beginnings go back almost 30 years
The origins of McLaren Special Operations go back almost 30 years. The department evolved from the McLaren Customer Care Program, which was set up in the early 1990s to service, maintain and personalize the McLaren F1. Today MSO offers a complete customization service for every McLaren model and continues to expand with different levels of personalization. With MSO Defined, which covers series options, the MSO Bespoke, with an almost unlimited degree of personalization, the MSO Limited, which creates limited editions and special editions of the latest McLaren vehicles, and the MSO Heritage, which is responsible for maintaining the historic models of the Brand like the McLaren F1.
The McLaren 765LT is lighter, more powerful and with an even higher level of performance both on the road and on the racetrack than its LT predecessors. It is the latest in a line of longtail McLarens and the most dynamic and engaging LT model McLaren Automotive has ever built.
only 765 individually numbered 765LT available
The car opens a new chapter in the “longtail” story that began with the McLaren F1 GTR racing car in the 1990s and takes the attributes that underlie every LT to a new level: extreme design, driver dedication , dynamics geared towards the racetrack, minimized weight, optimized aerodynamics and increased performance. The LT's promise to be limited to a few copies is also fulfilled, as only 765 individually numbered vehicles are available worldwide, all of which have already been taken.
The new 765LT is the most powerful, responsive, street-legal McLaren LT to date. Its 4,0-liter V8 McLaren M840T engine with twin turbochargers delivers a peak output of 765 hp at 7.500 rpm and a maximum torque of 800 Nm at 5.500 rpm. This leads to a peak acceleration of 2,8 seconds from 0-100 km / h and 7,2 seconds from 0-200 km / h. A weight reduction of 80 kg (DIN) compared to the McLaren 720S further contributes to the extremely impressive driving experience that the 765LT offers.
