KUALA LUMPUR: Remember the McLaren 765LT coupe that was unveiled by the automaker last March? Well, the latest McLaren 765 LT Spider is the convertible version of the same model and just like the fixed-roof version, it is limited to 765 units. Price? Hefty for sure, it’s 310,500 British pounds that roughly translates to RM 1.8 million.

McLaren 765 LT Spider details

Since it is the convertible version of the previously released 765LT coupe, it would be fair to first talk about the one-piece, carbon fibre roof. The unit is electrically operated, can be lowered or raised at speed up to 50 kmph via a dedicated control on the dashboard. Further, McLaren claims the entire process to take 11 seconds to complete making its roof mechanism one of the quickest and quietest in the world. On its quietness, we’d like to add that customers experienced a sound no louder than 60 dBA, which is twice as quiet as the previous 675LT Spider.

What else?

  • Extended roof length pushes the A-pillar further forward by 80 mm, thus creating an enhanced sense of space and easier ingress and egress via larger door openings
  • Its well-engineered MonoCage II-S carbon-fibre monocoque ensures the same structural strength and stiffness as the coupe
  • The 765LT Spider is weighed 49 kg more than the coupe (thanks to the retractable roof and its operating mechanism) and 80 kg lighter than the 720S Spider
  • The rear window can be lowered at a push of a button
