What went into the design of the McLaren 765LT?

Earlier this month, we shared the very first video in the McLaren Tech Club series.

The second video was focused on the rear wing of the McLaren Senna GTR, and we shared that in a blog that gave you the rundown on what exactly the McLaren Tech Club is. Now, the third episode has been released, focusing entirely on the design of the McLaren 765 LT – which we’ve covered plenty on our blog already. Enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for episode four!
