The McLaren 765lt Spider is also an arrow -fast fun. And not just on the racetrack. First exit.

The McLaren logic is simple and consistent. First comes a super athlete, then the spider and then the game is repeated with the "Long Tail" variants. So the versions with a longer rear that are even more suitable for the racetrack than the regular versions. The formula is: Power plus less weight results in performance. The empty weight of the McLaren 765LT Spider is 1278 kilograms, so the Schwalbenschanz-athlete is 80 kilograms lighter than the 720s Spider.

Slimmed to 1.2 tons

Combined with the 563 kW / 765 hp of the four-liter V8 biturbo, this results in a relation of 457 kW / 622 hp per ton. After 2.8 seconds, 100 km/h has been reached and the 765lt continues to 330 km/h. This allows you to overtake one or the other Italian topless competitor.

The McLaren technicians act adverts. So use the carbon monocoque including the engine, tinker the lightweight long tail racer around it and then season the vehicles with a few extras. For example, the brake from the Hyper-Sportler McLaren Senna grabs the 765LT and ensures that the spider is 200 km/h after 110 meters. The Senna also helps with the diet: if you want, you can have the carbon scarf seats weighing only 3.35 kilograms installed.

McLaren whips out unsprung masses away

Ingenieors are particularly happy to plan materials with the unsprung masses, as this incurs directly into agility: the four wheels and aluminum rims are 22 kilograms lighter than with the 720s. The titanium exhaust system weighs only 10.9 kilograms and thus saves more than 40 percent of weight compared to a steel version, plus thinner slices. Wherever there are only packing the McLaren technicians carbon elements and reducing the weight: front apron, sills, diffuser and the larger adaptive rear wing are made of composite. In total, the front apron saves 1.2 kilograms and the rear is 4.9 kilograms.

In the gearbox, which switches 15 percent faster than that of the 720s Spider, lightweight construction work from Formula 1. The deterior cure is not yet over. The applications in the doors are also lighter and the optimized lithium-ion battery saves another three kilograms lighter than the previous energy storage. The McLaren 765LT spider comes as standard without air conditioning and sound system. You don’t need the latter anyway. As soon as you sink the rear window when the roof is closed, the sonorous bubbles fill the passenger cell with its full sound.

Now it goes to the first nail test and it is not without. The Circuito de Navarra is a demanding playground for best -time hunters. In racing jargon, an asphalt railway is already described as a "technical course". The almost four -kilometer route offers curves with different radii, those that close and others, whose parting cannot be seen when you steer. Here every weakness is mercilessly uncovered.

More freedom for the rear

The McLaren 765 LT Spider cannot be disturbed by these requirements. In addition, there is the electro -hydraulic steering, which is one of the best control systems that can currently be found in automobiles. Especially if you treat the rear more freedom with the "Variable Drift Control", you have a lot of fun with the McLaren 765lt Spider. The pole position is not necessarily in it, but drifts through the curves make a lot of fun. As soon as you have driven out the ideal setting for best -time hunt, it also runs on the open McLaren 765lt for the best form. Impressive how the McLaren literally bites into every corner and brutally jumps out again quickly.

The technicians have modified the chassis to match the Spider, in which the focus is a little higher and further back, and the rear damper set a little harder. The damper hardens at the front as soon as the front car starts to roll and false. "We spent more time on the street when coordinating the 765lt Spider than on the racetrack," reveals chief engineer James Warner. The extra layers were worth it. The open version of the potent long-rear McLaren is so comfortable that even longer motorway stages with a wide grin on the face. Thanks to the maximum torque of 800 Newton meters, you don’t have to constantly step on the athlete and the seven-speed double clutch transmission automatically adapts to this relaxed forward urge. As soon as you have arrived, the doors also vibrate far high and you can peel yourself from your seats without contortions. The price? 369.000 euros.
