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.
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.
