The McLaren 765LT is not likely to be a cheap car to run, particularly if you use it regularly on track, where we burned through a full tank of fuel in under 50 minutes and also caused some fairly serious wear to the Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tyres.

You can pick normal P-Zero rubber for better all-round and all-weather performance but either way they are quite vast (particularly on the rear wheels) as is the cost of replacement.

McLaren says expect 280g/km of CO2 and a combined fuel economy of 23mpg – although that’ll plummet when you start to exploit the extraordinary performance on offer.
