    I saw my first 765LT the other day and I have to say McLaren did a great job in the looks department. I so so so want one......

    The one in that vid above is Sarthe grey, I always thought was a bit dark but looks really nice under that lighting.

    Beautiful, beautiful car, this is how the 720S should have looked like from the start. Smiley

    I just hope they do something about the criticized handling. I get it, very special car to drive but it won't help if people crash it all the time. Smiley

    Re: Mclaren 765LT

    If it's anything like my 720 turned up to 12 it's all about the tires given my experience. The tires are the limiting factor - the car is so capable the tires needs to be their focus.

    This is so true, I specced mine with the Trofeo R only because that it the tyre they said was super special and new and because the standard MC P Zeros are really crap...... I will be putting on either Cup 2s or PS4S fairly soon after delivery as I think the Trofeos will be useless on anything other than smooth warm asphalt but I know from experience that the PS4S worked well with the 720S, gave a lot more traction....

    I know you are quite passionate about using manufacturer specced tyres particularly the N rating on Porsche which I do have a lot of sympathy for but with Mclaren they are stuck with the Pirelli brand with no approved alternatives (unlike Porsche) and it is pretty universally accepted that Michelin PS4S are massively better tyres on all the mainstream Mclarens (even most 675LT owners use them for road use) the difference they make compared to the MC P Zero is quite ridiculous and Mclaren dealers are quite happy to retail used cars wearing PS4S (they sold my old 720 shod with them) unlike Porsche......not sure what that says, maybe Porsche just enforce their conditions more rigidly Smiley

    I think in the UK there are still allocations, with the way they are guaranteed to depreciate, because that's what Mclaren's do !, only real die harders will buy them and there aren't many around ....I think they have fared better in the US and allocations are harder to get

    The depreciation is such a shame because they are banging motors. Why so bad though ?.

    Customer service not the issue, they just make too many particularly in the UK and they load dealers up with unordered stock. On the 720S they just kept making them and there just aren't that many buyers out there with £250K so they fell to their current baseline ~£140K and there are lots of buyers, I did a deal with my 765 supplying dealer and he took in my 720 and sold it at this level in a couple of weeks, they are an incredible car for this price.

    Having said the above I think the bubble has burst for most expensive Marques and normal service is resumed on depreciation.............I did ask Cray not to talk about this subject indecision

    Re: Mclaren 765LT

    140k for a 720, is that with a good spec, carbon and all ?. Sorry, I have no idea.

    Cant see them going much below that , surely.
