A decent way to flog a house? Throw in a car to boot. No better method to sweeten the deal than to marshall a motor into the equation, especially if the prospective purchaser is a perceived petrol-head.
We’re not talking about getting rid of your Nissan Micra for a quick sale. Oh no. We’re talking about the expensive icing horse-powered piped on a colossal £12million cake. This is a penthouse that comes with a powerhouse of a car. A McLaren supercar. And this particular model is only one of 765 ever built.
It is the fastest, most powerful and most track-focused LT on the market.
The re-engineered 765PS 4.0 litre twin turbocharged V8. Performance takes you to the outer limits, going from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds, or 0-124mph in 7.2 seconds. The power keeps coming until you reach a maximum of 205mph.
The exclusive 765LT McLaren is currently parked up in a custom-built 1,719 square-foot garage on the west coast of the USA. Obviously this is all happening in Los Angeles, the city where the air got dirty and the sex got clean, apparently.
Dubbed “The Show Room,” the private gated garage is located within the new Pendry Residences West Hollywood, and provides direct access via private elevator to Terrace Estate 608, a two-storey penthouse Residence. The garage offers ample space for up to five cars, a private washroom, and a design allowance for the purchaser to customize the garage.
Befitting being situated in the entertainment capital of the world, the 3,015 square-foot penthouse provides access to a number of the estate’s unique areas, including its outdoor terraces, thematic bars, and rooftop pool.
It is all constructed and managed by Pendry Residences West Hollywood, a luxury residential development located on the Sunset Strip.There is a catch, however, the McLaren 765LT will only be allowed to be used for a single year, on lease, for the lucky resident. As such it’s likely you’ll want to spend more time in the car than your multi-million dollar residence.
If that hasn’t put you off, get down to the bank, withdraw that $16m, make sure your driving licence is valid, and get ready to join the beautiful people in the most beautiful supercar.
