Losing weight. It’s an obsession among our engineers. No stone (or nut, or bolt) is left unturned. They discovered that by spark-engraving the McLaren badge instead of embossing it, they could save 2.4 grams. Now, this might not seem like much… but it all adds up. And anything that lightens our cars is worth the effort.

Connecting the driver to the car and the feel of pure LT power. Join Chief Engineer James Warner in Episode 19 of the McLaren Tech Club to find out how we did it.
Tech Club - Episode 18 - Engineering the 765LT's incredible exhaust noise
Every part of the 765LT has been engineered to give the driver a pure, undiluted connection to the car. Which means you feel the road, the car’s every movement and its incredible performance. But our engineers didn’t just focus on performance. They were also looking to engineer an emotional connection with the engine. And that means sound.
