When it comes to McLaren, like Porsche, only the true aficionados can identify the specific model from more than 20 feet away, which is why we things it’s a great idea to do things to them to make them stand out from the crowd. In the case of the absolutely amazing 765LT Spider it can’t really have been that easy to modify in a way that was both good-looking, tasteful, and also doesn’t detract too much from the original lines of the stylish supercar. As the chaps from, Novitec say: “Our Novitec McLaren 765LT has enough horsepower to rearrange your face, but now, in the Spider, it’ll do your hair at the same time! Slip into the passenger seat of one of the most exhilarating cars of our time! Enjoy!”
With that McLaren badge on, here in sunny SA, the 765LT will set you back close to R7 000 000, and that’s just a direct sway from dollars to Rands, never mind shipping and licensing fees on top of that. As you’d expect from a car that costs the same as a small country’s GDP, the 765LT is pretty rapid. It sees fitment of a twin-turbocharged V8 that has an impressive 563 kW (755 hp) and 800 Nm available to induce smiles and nausea. After running through the Novitec fettling process, the 765LT’s power rises to 629 kW (855 hp) with torque up at 898 Nm. This should see the Long Tail hit the measured 100 km/h mark in as little as 2.5-seconds and has a new top speed of over 300 km/h. This is from some software tuning and a few versions of a new Novitec Race high-performance exhaust system (that can be had with 999 find gold plating, if you have proper F-You money).
