McLaren 765LT Runs RECORD 1/4 Mile in 8.916s!

Autos & Fahrzeuge

It hasn't taken long for the McLaren 765LT to break the 9s 1/4 mile time! At Palm Beach International Raceway, @petfred's new 765LT achieves an insane 8.916s. Despite the heat and humidity, with just downpipes and a tune, it has no problems showing what it can do.
The 765LT has quickly become the new undisputed supercar drag racing champion, capable of achieving 9.3s times in stock configuration when equipped with Toyo R888r tires. Brooks from DragTimes has taken numerous runs out with his to demonstrate exactly what it can do, even getting into the 9.3s range on the stock Pirelli Pzero tyres too.
However, roll-up @petfred's 765LT, a car already fitted with downpipes and a tune to take power up to 894hp at the wheels. With M Engineering in charge of the tune, Brooks and Gidi at the wheel, and the car set for action at Palm Beach International Raceway... impressive times are expected.
Fastest run:
ET 8.916s
MPH 157.85
60' 1.460
McLaren 765LT owned by @petfred @modfind
Driven for the record run by @gidi28

    That didn't take long! The new McLaren 765LT is stupidly fast out the box; give it downpipes and a tune and it can crack under the 9s 1/4 mile. What will beat it? (Other than the Tesla Model S Plaid Plus!)

    @Car Culture Nation Mustang is NOT a super car, what planet you on?? Look at the design language and the engineering that goes into a super car, carbon chassis, light weight materials, suspension aero etc, Mustang has and will always be a mass produced Muscle Car, it’s a brick ffs!!, stupidest comment I’ve read for a long time

    @Jak _ but the McLaren cost stupid amounts of money . I do not like seeing Super care on the drag strip because they are not built for drag racing they have no history. ..Europe and most of those car enthusiast looked down at drag racing for decades and all of a sudden they interested. Chrysler ,Ford,GM magazines plus muscle car magazines evolve around drag racing. Mustsngs have run in 5s, Euro car guys cannot argue because muscle car guys and Hot Rod guys are the real fans of drag the UK ,Audi,BMW, Lamborghini, McLaren drivers are acting like Drag Racing is brand new sport , non of those manufacturers have built a drag car from factory non, and until they get an NHRA title their fans can shut up. American car guys here get lots of stick when it came to track now it's our turn, our cars have ran 7s for decades. They need understand Drag Racing is part of American car culture so there overpriced over engineered cars running 8s in 2021 ain't all that when muscle was doing that decades ago.

    @CalvinAD7 no because Super cars are not built for for drag racing . Muscle cars have history in drag racing, Super car owners do it because it is the in thing for them. Muscle have ran 9s for decades. No Euro car manufacturer has made a factory drag car. Drag racing purists like me only want to see gasses, muscle, hot rods and Dragsters. For years Europe prestige enthusiasts mocked drag racing and now they doing it like its new. On circuit fine I do not mind Super cars but on a Drag Strip they look out of place. Are you going to see a pro street McLaren?

    Muscle cars have ran these times for decades. How come Super cars/ Euro car people have taken interest in Drag Racing all of a sudden. For years they mocked Drag Racing. I suppose to be impressed with a $300,000 car running 8.9s when in 1992 at fastest car in America shootout cars ran 8s back then they costed prob like 25-30 grand to build. Yank cars got stick on track racing but now the very sport Euro car enthusiasts criticised for decades they all of sudden decided it's cool.

    Give a 720S the same treatment, with its less track-focused, more streamlined, aerodynamically efficient bodywork, it'll comfortably beat that. America is the only place in the world where they are okay with the current horsepower war within the supecar world.

It did zero to 60 mph in about a month. 😂 Top speed of 90 mph with the wind to my back and going down a steep hill! It's cool to see a street legal "mostly stock" McLaren that is this fast! Cheers!
