McLaren has given its alluring 720S a hefty update, including a 30-hp boost that triggers a badge change to 750S. The 66 pounds McLaren cut from the 720S might seem small in terms of acceleration performance, but it lets McClaren claim the 750S as its lightest-ever “series production” model (which excludes limited models). A major cockpit revision enhances driver control, and a new exhaust system unleashes howling soundtrack. Best of all, there’s a choice between coupe and Spider models.
The new McLaren 765LT Spider is built for insanely fast speeds. With obsessive attention to reducing mass, the car’s pricing starts at $382,500, without a stereo system or air conditioning, which are no-cost options that add 25 pounds to its weight. This venomous Spider will run from 0-60 in just 2.7 seconds, obliterate the quarter-mile in 10 seconds and top out at 205 mph if you have enough track.
The 2022 McLaren Artura is an all-new and ultralight plug-in hybrid production model, weighing in less than a Toyota Prius.
25 supercars and luxury models were confiscated by Swiss authorities from Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue and sold at Bonhams auction in Switzerland last month.
Going into the weekend, there had been much buzz around two much-publicized “barn finds,” or more accurately, cars that had been evicted from a condemned garage earlier this year, a 1966 Ferrari 275 GTB long-nose alloy coupe and a 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Roadster.
McLaren Automotive was working on a new hypercar to replace the P1. The big surprise was that it gave the new model not another alphanumeric badge, but a name: Senna. It seems a fitting tribute to one of the greatest race drivers in history.
