One of the many perks of being a Formula 1 driver is being able to drive road cars made by the F1 team you race for. In this case, 23 year old Lando Norris drives a McLaren on the track and is now driving his very own McLaren 765LT Spider on the road, just one of 675 that will be built.
I’ve been able to drive a lot of different McLarens, but this is the first car that I’ve designed; this is me in a car.Lando Norris
“I’m a carbon lover, the more carbon I can have, the better but I didn’t want to have my logo everywhere, I wanted something a bit more subtle and MSO has done a fantastic job to realise my vision. My first custom car has been designed by McLaren and MSO and is even more perfect than I can imagine.”
Lando took delivery of his new car at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, England. The 765LT Spider is powered by a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 765 ps or 755 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. This is McLaren’s fastest accelerating Long Tail Spider ever. 0-60 mph takes just 2.7 seconds. 0-100km/h clocks in at 2.8 seconds, and 0 to 200 km/h takes just 7.2 seconds.
