Sure, the 765LT is even more overpriced for what it is. And it's less fun than a BAC Mono. The irony of some people wanting only rawness (when other options are more so) and then others saying the 765LT is versatile (when that's the opposite of what so many wanted in the 720S). That's the beauty of laptimes. You're either on top, or you aren't.I had an Ariel atom for 1 month. It is not comparable. I would prefer a Miata.
I had a Bac Mono in my garage for 1 year as my friend was convinced it was going to skyrocket. I drove that car a lot and on the track. It's a fun car.
Overpriced for what it is and what my friend found out is that no dealer wanted to buy it and pool of buyers is extremely small. The only way he could get rid of it was to trade at a eye-watering loss, which make Mclaren's depreciation look like PP nautilus resale values.
The BAC Mono is purely a journalists car so they can speak of the numbers. I have yet to see anyone of them actually buy it, like they do with F cars, P Cars etc.
The 765LT is between a BAC and a 720S... The reality is that there are now so many supercars in the market that consumers get to really fine tune what their tastes lean towards. So, raw like the BAC? Maybe not. civilized as a 720S, too much... Those of us who can afford these cars are the lucky few who can be extremely picky and indulge their sensory taste buds. A lap time while great is not a deal breaker for most.. Given the current competitive set of the exotic car market, another choice on the menu isn't necessarily a bad thing.Sure, the 765LT is even more overpriced for what it is.

Man, people are fireselling Monos? Maybe I should grab one.
That's a nonsense argument.I'm mentioning the BAC mono and Ariel atom as a better play for an involving driver's car, which to some people on here, is all that matters for the 765LT. Is that incorrect? Aren't both those cars far more engaging than any traditional supercar, on the road and on track?
I dont think its an issue of budget. Its really just how well planned and detail oriented like you would in a Formula 1 racing environment. Im always surprised why they cant bring that type of F1 mentality to a press release of vehicles for journalist that will help set the tone for your cars in the eyes of consumers worldwide. Getting optimally spec cars in prime condition is similar to prepping an F1 car... And its not like they are in as a much of a time crunch like in a F1 race. A shame letting all that work to elevate the car's peformance only to have a let down first impression...
From whom did you get these fake news? From the McLaren marketing department? I hope you have not paid a deposit yet....
The 765 will be the highest performing car available sub $1m range with the looks and sound to back it up. There is nothing else out there that will touch it for some time.
Finally someone says that ... the BS is so much race car its no more fun to drive around normally .... its even with the BS that is much much worse in my opinion than the Senna which has the hyperexotic look of a true hypercar and therefor is kind of outlawed from rules that apply to more normal cars ...I find it hard to believe the 765LT won't be significantly faster than the 720S, though maybe not the GTR BS since that car looks like an actual track car (i.e. it's embarrassing to drive on the street).
I wouldn’t find this any more ‘embarrassing’ to drive on the street than a Porsche RS.I find it hard to believe the 765LT won't be significantly faster than the 720S, though maybe not the GTR BS since that car looks like an actual track car (i.e. it's embarrassing to drive on the street). I personally would save $100-200K and buy a standard 720S, but that's just me. I don't find much value in the "track day" models and they will get surpassed in 12-24 months by the new model anyway.
But hey, if you got the cash and you like it, why not? To each their own.
well Porsche RS models in screaming colors have the same - driver took the wrong turn at the end of the pits look ... it’s nothing against performance on a car, but for normal road driving it looks a bit outlandishI wouldn’t find this any more ‘embarrassing’ to drive on the street than a Porsche RS.
