wheelsandmore from Baesweiler near Aachen is still considered the top address in the industry when it comes to the refinement of all sports cars. The tuner has now taken on the McLaren 765 LT and carried out a beautiful as well as technical upgrade. The McLaren 765 LT comes with fine-tuned aerodynamics as well as a 765 horsepower 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. The low tare weight of just 1229 kilograms was achieved with a 40 percent lighter titanium exhaust system (compared to steel), thinner glass, and polycarbonate brake discs, among other things.
Let’s not kid ourselves: a Longtail is incomparable, the howl of the titanium exhaust system, the stiffer engine suspension… – it’s the perfect fusion of agility and engineering. The newly wrapped rear wing is a masterpiece and, how could it be otherwise, is made of carbon fiber. 765 individually numbered cars will be delivered by McLaren to customer order – but let’s take a closer look at the car presented here!
For all customers for whom exclusivity is paramount, the tuner from Baesweiler offers no less than three forged wheel models from its wheel program.

Performance levels/engine tuning
An updated version of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from the 720S is responsible for the massive standard output. That’s almost too much for the road.
