The 765LT is 80 kilos lighter than the McLaren 720S. It does this with generous use of carbon fiber, which is ubiquitous in the vehicle. Also with the optimization of the engine construction and the elimination of elements designed for driver comfort, but which can be retrieved and equipped without any additional cost.

That material is also present in the bumpers, the front splitter, the rear diffuser or the diffuser, for example. Lightweight aluminum is used on doors, rear panels, and part of the roof. The MSO personalization department can attend personalized requests and replace it with carbon fiber, in case the owner wants the car in its most extreme variant.
