Mental Novitec fettled McLaren 765 LT

As though the McLaren 765 LT is not powerful enough, Novitec has given it even more of the stuff

No items found.

As the successor to the already impressive and mental McLaren 675LT, the 765LT was unveiled in 2020 and while it pushes out an astounding 563 kW and 800 Nm, the German tuning company, Novitec, has tinkered one to extract more power with resounding success, we might add. 


The tuned McLaren 765LT still employs its 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, however, Novitec installed a new N-Tronic ECU module plus software enhancements. Other upgrades include changing the parameters such as ignition, injection and boost pressures.


The upgrades resulted in a whopping 629 kW at 7 400 r/min and 898 Nm at 6 300 r/min. Thus yielding a 2.5 seconds sprint to 100 km/h and an even more impressive 0 to 200 km/h figure of only 6.5 seconds. To put it into context, the standard car does the same feat in 7.2 seconds - that's 7 tenths more which is plenty in performance car terms - while the top speed is pegged at 330 km/h.


For reference sake, the standard McLaren 765LT does a  2.8 seconds sprint to 100 km/h. 


On the other hand, Novitec says its tuned 765LT has a power-to-weight ratio of 470 kW/tonne - eclipsing even that of the mighty P1 hypercar 442 kW/tonne. 


For better traction and cornering prowess, the tuned McLaren 765LT is equipped with 325/25/21-inch and 255/30/20-inch tyres front and rear respectively. 


The forged wheels have been designed in collaboration with American high-end tyre manufacturer Vossen. 


Novitec also installed its sport suspension that lowers the height of the 765LT by 20 mm.


Aesthetic upgrades to make up for the increased performance include naked carbon fibre headlight inserts, air intakes surrounds, N-LARGO trunk lid and the air scoop on the roof. There are also naked-carbon inserts for the rocker panels and the air intakes on both sides of the hood. 


Novitec also has the ‘Stage 2’ hardware upgrade that adds a thermally insulated exhaust system made from Inconel, with ceramic-coated turbo inlet pipes while Gold plating is also available, not to mention the 100-cell sport catalytic converters.

The Novitec McLaren 756 LT takes an already insanely powerful and fast supercar and thrusts it into even loftier levels of astronomical performance.
