More power through electronics adaptation
Here is the 765LT not that slow in itself. Based on the 720S, he is the spearhead of McLaren’s Super Sport series and completely brushed on the racetrack. In the series it makes the eponymous 765 hp – but measured on the rear wheels. His Four-liter twin-turbo V8 want Hennessey have measured a good 870 hp. With revised engine electronics, new intake, stainless steel exhaust system including downpipes and new seals and performance fluids the power of the engine increases to 1014 hp. At the rear wheels, almost 100 hp less should then arrive.
0.6 seconds faster to 96 km / h than the series
No drama that The tuned Brit sprint from 0 to 60 mph (96 km / h) in 2.1 seconds. The series needs 2.7 seconds for this (0-100 km / h in 2.8 seconds) Bugatti Chiron still 2.4. The number is even more impressive when you consider that only the rear wheels are driven on the 765LT. McLaren It is not for nothing that they are particularly efficient at converting force into acceleration. Incidentally, Hennessey does not specify any other driving values. The series Vmax of 330 km / h the HPE1000 should easily outbid the over-McLaren, even if the 400+ km / h of the Chiron probably not in there.
The tuning costs 22,000 euros
Except for the HPE1000 logos on the outside and a plaque with a serial number on the inside Hennessey leaves the optics untouched. And the price for the tuning? Including installation costs the increase in performance the equivalent of around 22,000 euros (excluding taxes), which seems more than fair in view of the driving values offered. And who at least 335,000 euros for a McLaren 765LT has spent, should in any case only smile at such a sum.
