Rocket League needs no introduction. Nobody could have predicted the casual car football game would become one of the most popular games in the world played by millions of adoring fans. Its simplicity combined with deep gameplay mechanics has made Rocket League a huge hit, particularly in the world of eSports.
It’s so popular that it caught the attention of real-world car manufacturers looking to advertise their cars. Even Formula 1 and NASCAR are capitalising on Rocket League’s phenomenal popularity.
Last year, the BMW M240i arrived in Rocket League before the car went on sale in the real world. To coincide with No Time to Die, the Aston Martin Valhalla hypercar and the iconic DB5 also recently joined the beautiful game. Now, McLaren is back in Rocket League.
McLaren 765LT lands in Rocket League
The latest licensed car to join the virtual pitch in Rocket League is the mighty McLaren 765LT.
Included in the bundle, you get the McLaren 765LT car, engine audio, wheels, black-painted wheels, a silver-painted decal, and a McLaren 765LT player banner. These items can only be equipped with the McLaren 765LT. Probably because of licensing restrictions, you can’t customise the McLaren 765LT with all item types.
In real-life, the McLaren 765LT is essentially a lighter, faster, and more track-focused version of the 720S Super Series. McLaren has extracted 45 hp from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, bringing the total output to 755 horsepower.
All that power is sent to the rear wheels. This setup enables the track-focused monster to rocket from 0-60 mph in a blistering 2.7 seconds.
This isn’t the first time McLaren has partnered with Psyonix. Previously, the British supercar maker brought the P1 and 570S to Rocket League.
How long is the McLaren 765LT available in Rocket League?
There is a catch, though: the McLaren 765LT is available for a limited time only. The sleek supercar can be bought at the Rocket League item shop until 18 January, so grab it while you still can.
McLaren 765LT price
If you want to drive the McLaren 765LT in Rocket League, it costs 1100 in-game Credits/£7.50.
In real-life, the McLaren 765LT will set you back £280,000 and is limited to 765 examples. It’s sold out in real life too, so Rocket League is the only way many people can experience McLaren’s masterpiece.
Does Forza and Gran Turismo have the McLaren 765LT?
You can drive a myriad of McLarens in Forza and Gran Turismo games. However, the McLaren 765LT is not currently available in any Forza or Gran Turismo game.
As well as Rocket League, Real Racing 3 and CSR Racing 2 are the only games that feature the McLaren 765LT.
