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

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!)

@Kurt Flewitt gt500 happens to be a damn good track car as well. Stock it can run within a second of the huracan evo f8 tributo and the new 911 turbo s. And that’s on a tight twisty track. Something more wide open and it would beat those cars. With the upgrades it wold smoke those cars. Gt500 with can run 8s and still handle. The point of the blue palm beach dyno gt500 is he is going to run low low 9s high 8s on stock factory transmission stock factory sealed engine factory suspension stock fuel system and ported factory blower. Then go make a lap at a track and see who which cars can come close to the same time. We are comparing a upgraded $500,000 Mclaren actually I heard that one was optioned up to $600,000 and $50,000-$70,000 in upgrades. Compared to a car that can do all of that and the base price is $70,000 with $15,000-$30,000 in upgrades. The cx1100 package costs $40,000 but most of that cost is the carbon fiber which wasn’t needed to run low 9s high 8s on other gt500s. Point is mustangs are no longer just straight line cars. Yes there are more 5-6-7-8 and 9 second 1/4 mile mustangs on the planet than any other car. But there are also tons of mustangs that can handle. You have the gt4 mustang that has a factory engine for buyers to compete in factory series. In fact I’ve even seen fox body mustangs completely tracks focused that would beat the mclaren any day in autocross. Upgrade that engine and the mclaren wouldn’t stand a chance. But that’s a $225,000 car. Gt500 is up there with cars like the gt3rs on tight tracks. In fact is we are comparing a $660,000+ including upgrades vs a car that costs $110,000 with upgrades. Or $140,000 for a cftp gt500. The mclaren is a awesome unbelievable car from factory. I wouldn’t touch one if I owned one. I would build a 6sec drag mustang GT $75,000 including the car. before I start ruining what Mclaren made. McLarens are plagued with unreliability. Start tuning them and upgrading them they will only get worse. Hands down a gt500 is a more reliable better bang for the buck that you don’t have to worry about driving the hell out of it. Most 765lts will only be driven a few hundred miles a year for a couple yrs and then be put away. Because people don’t want to puss the value you away by putting to many miles on and they hate the huge repair and maintenance bills. Meanwhile you will have people tracking there 100,000 miles gt500s. There are 3 different car worlds. One is the one where the guy daily’s his Mustang to work and runs it at the track and road course on the weekend. 2nd are show car and supercar owners maybe take there cars to dinner and work every ones in a great while and most never see tracks and end up being a garage queen. 3rd is the full blown race/drag cars.that are trailered to the track and can blow any supercar or hypercar away. Let’s face it there will never be a mid to Low 7 sec mclaren 765lt I guarantee we will see a 7sec sec 2020gt500 before we ever see a 7 sec Mclaren 765lt. Because there are already plenty of 7sec mustang gt500/cobras out there of the earlier models. This is where it comes down to. What do you want? Most people could never afford the upgraded $600k+ 765lt. Or even a base one for $380k. For that money the average joe can buy a house buy a gt500 as a fun daily. Buy a truck and trailer and build a 6 sec mustang drag car and a track focused mclaren killing mustang. All which can actually be used and abused. You could do all of that and still have money left out of the $660,000 mclaren. Or you can hve the 765lt as a look what I have piece that you only drive once in a while and the rest of the time you stare at it in your garage.

@Car Culture Nation this isn't a drag car though, it just happens to be good at that as well. It's a track car. Run your 7 second Mustang around the Nurburgring to make it fair comparison.

@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!
