In the official press release for the new McLaren 765LT's entry into Rocket League, Psyonix made the claim that "For McLaren, there is no finish line". Well it seems that, despite Season 3 sucking more than Tomato Soup, there certainly is no finish line for the bore that is the sports-car theme that came along with it. All this being said, out of the several sports cars to come to Rocket League over the last twelve months, the McLaren 765LT is certainly one of the best. As Psyonix also said:
In the real world, the McLaren 765LT features the exhilarating power of a 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which dashes 0-60 MPH in just 2.7 seconds.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, that is certainly not a car to be ignored. Zero-to-sixty in under three seconds might seem a little unnecessary, and it is, but that doesn't make it any less awesome. There's also the tiny matter of this new Battle Car look absolutely gorgeous. Seriously, who doesn't love this sleek design? Especially with the Black Wheels and the Silver Decal that Psyonix have chucked into the bundle for our amusement. We might still be a little salty about Season 3, but we're certainly not complaining about these beauties.
What is the McLaren 765LT Hitbox?
The McLaren 765LT features a Dominus Hitbox, giving it plenty of manoeuvrability and making it ideal for last-minute saves. Whilst all vehicles have the same speeds in Rocket League, so that V8 Engine ain't going to be showing off too much, a delicious Dominus Hitbox adds a lot to the McLaren 765LT. As one of the best Hitboxes in Rocket League, the Dominus' thin and squat design makes it supremely useful for goal keeping and reaching the ball as quickly as possible, due to its length.
All this being said, though, let's not dive to deeply into the Dominus Hitbox just yet. If you want more details, check out our in-depth guide to the Dominus and what you can expect from the McLaren 765LT's hitbox...

How Much Does the McLaren 765LT Bundle Cost?
The McLaren 765LT Bundle Costs 1100 Rocket League Credits, or the equivalent of $10 USD. Seeing as a significant amount of money is often expected for bundles like this (especially licenced bundles), it is actually quite surprising to see the price so low. That being said, though, this is still a virtual car with some virtual skins... for ten bucks. So it really is up to you, and your decision needs to be based on whether this is something you really want!
When is the McLaren 765LT Bundle Available?
The McLaren 765LT will be available in Rocket League from January 12 until January 18. Featuring the items above, at only 1100 RL Credits, many will consider this bundle an absolute bargain. Whilst we are a little bit more dubious, we do admit that this McLaren Bundle does offer some value for money, and you should make sure to get in quick if it peaks you interest.
Is the McLaren 765LT Rocket League Bundle Worth It?
So, considering the bundles relatively low price (at least for these sorts of bundles) and a fantastic decal, we would certainly say that the McLaren 765LT Rocket League Bundle is worth it. I mean, there's a lot of crud out there in the Rocket League Item Shop. Seriously, just so much! So... yes, it's certainly getting that "worth it" stamp of approval from us. You could do much worse... but you could also do much better. It really is up to you. Just use your brain.
