Miles straps into the latest Long Tail McLaren in this in-depth review. Tracing its origins to the McLaren F1 GT of the late ’90s and succeeding the 675LT, the 765LT has some big shoes to fill. Based on the 720S, McLaren has stripped weight (up to 176 lbs), increased power (by 45 hp and 22 lb-ft), and enhanced exclusivity (limited to just 765 units) to create the 765LT. With a $385,000 starting price, the 765LT is track-focused but street-legal supercar with few direct rivals. Well-heeled buyers may also consider the Lamborghini Huracan Performante (or newer STO) or Ferrari 488 Pista (or newer F8 Tributo).
The 675LT remains one of the best cars Miles has ever driven and the 720S is among the most impressive supercars on sale, so his expectations for the 765LT are high. Are they too high? Find out!
