Not that the McLaren 720S wasn’t powerful enough or was too slow off the mark, the new McLaren 765LT has dropped a few pounds and is all set to create a new stir in the performance coupe segment. This road legal track-focused Longtail coupe gets immense amounts of grip to transfer that tremendous power and torque to catapult the lightweight chassis almost as quickly as a Formula 1 car. The hollow-eyed front fascia and the exotic overall design excite emotions while driving this grippy McLaren.

McLaren launched the 765LT just last year, and hence this year there are no updates or changes made apart from the inclusion of a new Spyder convertible variant. As for the prices, the MSRP is a whopping $368,000 before options and customizations. Although most of its target audience wouldn’t mind spending the additional bucks it demands over its rivals, it has to be a hearty decision as no sensible mind can justify the higher prices. Most of its rivals are much more affordable, which include Aston Martin DBS, Ferrari F8 Tributo, and the Lamborghini Aventador S

2022 Mclaren 765LT Features

As is the case with most exotic cars, McLaren too offers the 765LT in just a standalone trim with plenty of optional features and packages available for an added premium. Apart from these, there are plenty of customization and personalization options in which McLaren tailor-makes the cabin and certain exterior elements to match your personality and tastes.

We Recommend

As the price of the base trim is already high, and adding options shoots the final payable mount exorbitantly high, one needs to keep an eye on the tab while selecting the features. That being said, with plenty of carbon fiber and Alcantara elements already in play, it is best to just add the optional features and add more value to the car. 

2022 McLaren 765LT Release Date

Similar to the previous year, one can expect that McLaren will sell only 765 units worldwide this year as well, out of which only about 30 to 40 percent will make their way to the United States & will be available only by the end of 2021.

2022 Mclaren 765LT Engine and Performance

8.0/10

The 2022 McLaren 765LT will continue to be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine positioned in the same mid-engine layout, which is mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The engine is rated to produce an astounding 755 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to only the rear wheels as standard. The performance from this powertrain is unsurprisingly quick, achieving 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds, while the quarter-mile drag run takes just over 10 seconds. 

The lower, wider, and longer stature of the 765LT over the 720S improves the handling of the car along with the quicker steering ratios and the six-piston Monobloc calipers from the Senna, which further enhances driving performance. Driving the 765LT at speeds does give you glimpses of the Senna as to how easier it is to drive as compared to the 720S. The superior visibility, light steering, new hydraulically interconnected dampers, and super-aggressive Senna-style Pirelli Trofeo R tires all inspire great confidence at high speeds.

The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the more affordable and sensible alternative to the 765LT as it not only costs considerably less than the McLaren but also has similar acceleration performance and handling to offer. The Lamborghini, on the other hand, is substantially pricier and yet is only one-tenth of a second quicker to 60 mph from a standstill. The Aston Martin, on the other hand, is the slowest of the lot, needing over 11 seconds for the quarter-mile run.

2022 Mclaren 765LT Fuel Economy

The fuel efficiency of an exotic sports car is not something that is a point of debate for any enthusiast or customer alike. But just for the sake of the record, the 2022 McLaren 765LT is rated for 16 mpg of combined city and highway driving as per the EPA. The 19-gallon fuel tank is smaller than what we would have liked, and although we understand the weight-saving notion of the designers, owners would have to visit the gas station more often.

The Ferrari F8 returns similar fuel economy figures as that of the McLaren but employs a larger gas tank which aids it in offering a longer driving range, which is also one of the best in the segment. The Aston Martin DBS is the most frugal in this comparison and also offers a decent driving range, while the Aventador S is no doubt the king at gulping down fuel, and even with the large fuel tank capacity, it only manages just over 300 miles of range on the highways.

2022 Mclaren 765LT Interior

9.0/10

The cabin design of the 765LT is very similar to that of the McLaren 720S and hence we get the scissor doors that swing upwards which also takes out a chunk of the roof with it, offering better ingress and egress. The seating is very low to the ground, and the slim carbon-fiber seats are similar to the ones on Senna. There is no air-conditioning or stereo on offer as standard to save around 25 lbs of weight, but it’s a no-cost add-on if you ask for it. 

2022 Mclaren 765LT Coupe

Everything you see or feel is either covered with carbon-fiber trim or Alcantara and suede upholstery. Although it isn’t the most exciting and stylish cabin to look at, everything is purposeful and is ergonomically designed. The mid-engine layout means there is a 5.3 cu-ft of the front trunk, and that’s about it. There are not many storage pockets or cup holders around the cabin, and frankly, nobody is asking for it either.

The Lamborghini Aventador S gets a cabin similar to that of the McLaren as it too is pretty simplistic, and it too does not offer much creature comforts as we see with the Aston Martin DBS. The Ferrari has a bit of modern appeal to it and also offers the largest cargo space, while both the McLaren and Lamborghini have the least amount of luggage space, with the DBS offering marginally better. Major interior features include:

  • Carbon Fiber Racing Seats
  • McLaren Alcantara Seat Trim
  • Tilt/Telescoping Sport Alcantara Simulated Suede & Carbon Fiber Steering Wheel
  • Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning
  • Alcantara Simulated Suede Door Trim Insert and Alcantara Simulated Suede Headliner
  • Carbon Fiber Console Insert and Aluminum Interior Accents
  • Alcantara Simulated Suede Upholstered Dashboard

How intuitive is the 2022 McLaren 765LT’s infotainment unit?

McLaren offers a vertically-oriented 8-inch touchscreen McLaren Infotainment System that is positioned in the center of the dashboard. As mentioned before, there is no stereo system on offer, but there is an optional four-speaker unit on offer which just does its job well, but audiophiles should love the superior and more powerful Bowers & Wilkins audio system. There is a mobile hotspot, satellite radio, and Bluetooth also on offer along with the McLaren Track Telemetry system to better your skills on the track. Major infotainment features include:

  • 8.0-inch McLaren Infotainment System (MIS)
  • McLaren Track Telemetry (MTT)
  • 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot Internet Access
  • SiriusXM satellite radio
  • On-board memory
  • Voice control
  • Bluetooth 

2022 Mclaren 765LT Exterior

8.0/10

Although both the front and rear end of the 765LT resembles the 720S, it has a certain level of differentiation, which is all purposeful rather than just-style. Since it gets the Longtail treatment, the 765LT is longer than the 720S by 10 mm at the rear, while the front splitter protrudes by around 40 mm. The active rear spoiler is designed to provide 20% extra surface area for better grip at high speeds.

 2022 Mclaren 765LT Coupe 

Everything contributes to reducing the weight for the 765LT and hence it features lighter wheels, carbon fiber parts, polycarbonate rear windshield carbon fiber panels, although most of the body is made of aluminum. The styling is gorgeous overall with the revised aero package that is all carbon fiber now which will turn your head every time you park it in your garage or at a parking lot of a casino.

In terms of dimensions, the Ferrari and McLaren are again neck-to-neck, but the extra weight-saving efforts of the McLaren engineers mean that it is one of the lightest cars on offer. The Lamborghini is the longest car here and yet is pretty much on par with its weight, while the Aston Martin DBS is the heaviest of the lot in spite of being much smaller than the Lambo. Major exterior highlights include:

  • Automatic Projector Beam LED Daytime Running Auto-Leveling Headlamps
  • LED Brakelights
  • Power Spoiler
  • Rain Detecting Fixed Interval Wipers
  • Carbon Fiber Power Heated Side Mirrors w/Tilt Down and Power Folding
  • Black Side Windows Trim
  • T-Bar Composite 1st Row Sunroof
  • 19-inch 10-spoke ultra-lightweight platinum finish alloy wheels

2022 Mclaren 765LT Safety

9.0/10

There is no surprise in the fact that neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has crash-tested the McLaren 765LT yet, and considering the extremely high value and low volume of the car, we are pretty sure that it ain’t happening in the future as well. Although it does not feature many of the driver aids as standard, as far as safety is concerned, there is plenty of safety technology in play with strong aluminum and carbon fiber structures to assure maximum safety, in case things were to go sideways. Major safety features include:

  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC) And Roll Stability Control (RSC)
  • Dual Stage Driver And Passenger Front & Door-Mounted Side Airbags
  • Driver And Passenger Knee Airbag
  • Airbag Occupancy Sensor
  • Front And Rear Parking Sensors
  • Restricted Driving Mode
  • Back-Up Camera
  • Tire Specific Low Tire Pressure Warning

2022 Mclaren 765LT Competition

2022 McLaren 765LT vs Aston Martin DBS

The Aston Martin DBS is the perfect combination of speed and luxury, and it does so in style. It is a bit cheaper than the McLaren, although it isn't as quick or as agile at handling as the 765LT. That being said, it is marginally more frugal and also has a bit more cabin and luggage space to offer as it also features an additional row of comically small rear seats. Therefore, it is a matter of priority. If sheer performance is what you seek, look no further than the 2022 McLaren 765LT.

2022 McLaren 765LT vs Ferrari F8 Tributo

The most evenly matched cars of this segment, the Ferrari F8 Tributo could very well be your cheaper alternative if you don’t manage to get your hand on the limited-run 765LT. The Ferrari has the handling and acceleration performance to offer that is on par with the McLaren and yet offers a not-so-claustrophobic cabin, which is much more comfortable and loaded with a bit more features.

2022 McLaren 765LT vs Lamborghini Aventador S

Lamborghini has been the go-to brand when sheer performance is concerned for quite a while now, and the Aventador S is a major reason behind that. Although the prices are much higher than any other car, it is quicker in a straight line and is also agile on the bends like no other. The cabin now also features a bit of modernity, and although Lamborghini might have milked the hell out of this car, it still overshadows most of the modern-day cars by a mile, and that’s a fact.

2022 Mclaren 765LT Final Verdict

8.8/10

The introduction of the McLaren 765LT has filled up the space left between the 720S and Senna, and that is probably what was the intention behind the inception of this car. It is much lighter and better handler than the 720S and is also not as imposing and outright outrageous as the Senna to drive. The lack of some features might put some people off, but when performance is concerned, there are frowning faces at all.
