    What’s the difference between the McLaren 765lt Spider and the Coupe?

    The 765LT Spider is 108 pounds heavier than the coupe, McLaren says. The Spider is still powered by McLaren’s M840T twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 755 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. McLaren says the Spider will reach 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, the same as the coupe.

    How fast is the McLaren 675LT?

    The sprint to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds, and to 124 mph in 7.2 seconds, according to McLaren. The new drop-top assembly is much improved over the 675LT’s slow hydraulically operated fold-away roof, taking just 11 seconds to tuck away and out of sight (versus 17 seconds for the 675).

    What kind of engine does a McLaren spider have?

    The Spider is still powered by McLaren’s M840T twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that makes 755 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. McLaren says the Spider will reach 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, the same as the coupe.

    What is the difference between the McLaren 720S and 720S Spider?

    That means a redesigned shape to improve downforce by 25 percent and a weight loss of 176 pounds (for a new total of 3060) over the 720S Spider. Underneath the skin you’ll find a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 making 755 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque getting to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.


    Why is the McLaren limit set at 500?

    The limit is set at 500 because that’s how many McLaren figured it could sell without the residual values beginning to tail off. However rich these customers are, they don’t want their cars’ value to plummet. They didn’t get rich by being mugs, and it would make their friends laugh.


    Is the LT a stratospheric plane?

    The car operates on a stratospheric plane, but elevates you with it. It’s sharp but not spiky. Meanwhile up front, the LT’s steering is magically alert, and feeds torrents of feel to your happy hands. The suspension for the LT is, like the engine, very much redeveloped over the 650S.


    Did McLaren restrict the 675LT Coupe to 500 units?

    McLaren did indeed restrict the 675LT Coupe to 500 units. But people badgered the brass-hats at Woking to do a Spider. And McLaren figured two things. One, if they didn’t do it at the factory, aftermarket firms would oblige, by taking Coupes and hacking in the roof module from a 650S Spider. And two, McLaren couldn’t resist the trade …


    Does the 675LT have hard mounts?

    And the 675LT also has ultra-hard engine mounts, to get sharper response and a better feeling of connectedness. Plus the suspension bushes are stiff, and the tyres aggressive. All of which means a lot of road noise and tuneless engine grumble when you’re at a steady-speed cruise.


    Is the 675LT a turbo?

    The quick wittedness of the 675LT engine is almost enough to make you forget it’s a turbo – though its sheer punch doesn’t leave much doubt. The engine is vastly modified from the 650S unit, in search of response more than outright output figures.
