(By Tom Lohnes) – A few months ago, McLaren confirmed their wild 765LT supercar will achieve under 10 seconds in the quarter mile. Well, they were right, but we sort of expected a 9.9 or 9.8. Well, I am pleased to say it is well under that. Move over Demon, there’s a new king in town.
Hitting 0-60 in 2.1 seconds, 100 in 4.7, and passing the 1320-foot mark in 9.33 seconds, the 765LT is the quickest production car ever recorded, 0-60 and ¼ mile. With 755 horsepower, 590 lb.-ft of torque, and weighing under 3000 lbs., it isn’t hard to see why the 765 accelerates so hard. The Demon, although impressive for such a heavy car, requires slicks, race gas, and a trans brake to be that quick, and the 765LT did it on factory tires. This feat was achieved by a Youtuber appropriately named Dragtimes, who has one of the first 765LTs in the country, along with a fleet of other cars that includes a Challenger Demon.
For just over $300,000, the 765LT is one of the few cars in that price range that is actually worth it. Of course, options are plentiful, but those sticky R-compound tires are standard so you can run 9’s without paying extra.
