McLaren Automotive, the creator of luxury high performance supercars, recently completed delivery of a one-off example of the limited-volume, sold-out McLaren 765LT. The unique supercar features a wealth of exclusive personalisation options carried out by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the brand’s in-house bespoke division.
The dramatic bodywork is finished in a ‘colour-shifting’ MSO Cerberus Pearl paintwork, which includes hues of blue, purple, gold and orange. The front splitter, rear bumper, side skirts, as well as the mirror casings and air intakes, have been finished in gloss carbon fibre that highlights the uncompromisingly light-weight engineering philosophy of the iconic British company. Enhancing the visual drama even further are a fully-functional MSO Defined roof scoop, 10-spoke Ultra-Lightweight wheels in gloss black finish and McLaren Orange brake calipers.
Extensive personalisation continues inside the focused cabin of the McLaren 765LT, with satin carbon fibre finishes, as well as bespoke door inserts, speaker surrounds and seatbelts all in McLaren Orange and providing a subtle reference to the brand’s racing heritage. The track-oriented interior is further complemented with the addition of the MSO Defined titanium harness bar and six-point harness.
“We are honoured to complete delivery of this highly-personalised example of the McLaren 765LT to one of our discerning customers. This extraordinary creation is a real showcase of the skills and craftsmanship represented by the team at McLaren Special Operations, which continue to inspire our current and future owners. Over 25% of all McLaren 765LTs intended for Europe, Middle East and Africa will feature high-degree of personalisation and we look forward to concluding final regional deliveries of this sell-out supercar by the end of summer.”
Brett Soso, Managing Director – Europe, Middle East & Africa

Lighter, more powerful and with even higher levels of performance on both road and track than LT predecessors, the McLaren 765LT is the latest in a line of ‘Longtail’ McLarens and the most dynamically advanced and engaging LT model ever from McLaren Automotive.
The car opened a new chapter in the ‘Longtail’ story that began with the McLaren F1 GTR race car in the 1990s and elevates to new levels the attributes that underpin every LT: extreme design, driver engagement, track-focused dynamics, minimised weight, optimised 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. It’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 McLaren M840T engine delivers peak power of 765PS (755bhp) at 7,500rpm and maximum torque of 800Nm (590lb ft) at 5,500rpm, which together translate to benchmark acceleration figures of 2.8 seconds from 0-100 km/h and 7.2 seconds from 0-200 km/h.
An 80kg (DIN) weight reduction over the McLaren 720Sfurther contributes to the extremely immersive driving experience that the 765LT delivers.
