BUYING THE RIGHT ONE? McLaren 765LT vs AMG GT Black Series

Πριν 17 ημέρες

The McLaren 765LT and AMG GT Black Series go directly head to head in their purpose, performance, price and even exclusivity. However, despite a history of both the LT models and AMG GTs, I've only bought one of the new cars (so far); is my choice actually the better car and how do they stack up against one another?
In recent weeks, I was lucky enough to drive both of the new cars directly back to back on adjacent days; firstly with McLaren at Silverstone in the UK, and then the following day with AMG at the Lausitzring in Germany. There could not have been a better opportunity to therefore weigh up whether it's the right choice for me to purchase the latter for the Shmeemobiles.
The 765LT starts at £280,000 but realistically with spec will be £330-340k, for a car that has a 4.0l TT V8 making 765hp/800Nm, of which 1,530 will be made plus special editions. The GT BS is £335,000 with all options included, for a car with a 4.0l TT V8 making 730hp/800Nm, of which they will build 1,500-2,000 in total. They have both launched this year, are both built for the track, both approximately the same performance and come in at bang on the same money - you can see the similarities!
However, which is actually the better car? Without any doubt, for an infrequent track drive, the 765LT is leagues ahead for its driving, handling, and outright speed. However, throw in desire for reliability over many miles, daily usage and perhaps long term value and the GT Black Series is going to pull ahead. When it comes to my garage, this is where it starts to become more interesting and specific to me. With both my 675LT Spider and Senna sticking around for the long haul, the 765LT would be quite a duplicate in terms of being a permanent car. On the other side, while the SLS BS will be staying, eventually the GT R Pro and GT R Roadster will move on, giving the GT Black Series a long term home, while being used for huge miles in the process. I find it a fascinating comparison, and feel very lucky to have experienced both already!
Thanks for watching, Tim

There's a big supercar battle between the 765LT and GT Black Series, but which would you go for? What do you think of my reasons for the choice I've made so far?

I'd understand British guys favoring McLaren (I'm partial to Japan myself), but get the car with the best seats.

765LT. I’d say McLaren make some of the best supercars. Looks and performance. They never fail to impress.

I would go for the Black Series. Mercedes Is a way better functioning brand and the looks of the BS are just such a step up over the standard GT. I like both but think the BS is a better longterm investment as well.

Who even thought of implementing that much fake sound? Did they seriously think: "The people buying this car for 330k are most likely mercedes enthusiasts, so they'll love that their car sounding like a video game."

Personally I would go with the 765 mainly I feel like we need more Mclearns, We have the Senna and LT, but we have so more AMGs arleady, the SLS the GTR pro the G wagon, and the Roadster coming. I feel like if we add the GT BS there would be SO much AMG

I understand that the subject here is the Mac VS the Merc but it has to said that cars like your Ford GT which were selected as a true collectors item are a better choice. Something like a Porsche 918 or a P1 are starting to climb in value and becoming more sought after at rallies. Save your money with the 2 Maclarens you already have and get the Merc to have something special and consider those former HyperCars to be true collectors items for your next garage.

Wow. This must be the first time I’ve heard Tim, say something negative about McLaren, “Not known for their quality”, “Not as reliable” etc. Up to now, even when he’s experienced issues with his McLarens, Tim just quickly glossed over the issues, making him (Tim) the odd person out with others who’ve voiced their negative experience with McLaren. It’s great to see some real honesty coming from Tim. Being a huge automotive influencer, he has a responsibility to tell it how it is and be honest with his experiences. Otherwise it just means he’s misleading us - his audience. So, kudos to Tim. Let’s see more of these uncensored vlogs.

I think Mercedes should get the digital engine sound working on the car stereos volume control. That would add in a way of adjusting how much or how little you want out of the speakers and a way of muting the sound entirely for those who prefer the natural engine noise. I really think it is something the manufacturer should consider doing as a software update or add it into their future performance and track-focused cars. I mean a lot of people who are into cars will like it. No matter what manufacturer does it, it will be a very much welcomed feature. Just an idea that came to my mind.
