The all-new McLaren Artura has officially been revealed, marking the beginning of both a new chapter for the pioneering luxury supercar company and a new era in supercar technology and performance.
McLaren’s first series-production High-Performance Hybrid supercar focuses more than half a century of the company’s racing and road-car experience and expertise into a next-generation supercar that blends ground-breaking technology with McLaren’s dedication to pure driver engagement.
Available to order now from McLaren San Diego, with first deliveries to customers commencing in Q3 of this year, the standard specification includes the power-adjustable Comfort Seats, smartphone mirroring function and a Practicality Pack featuring vehicle nose lift, power folding and heated door mirrors, soft close doors and Homelink, all as standard fitment.
Underpinned by the McLaren philosophy of super-lightweight engineering, the all-new Artura is the distillation of every attribute inherent in a McLaren – distinctive design, unrivalled performance, dynamic excellence and engineering innovation – with electrification now bringing the additional benefits of even faster throttle response, lower emissions and being able to run in pure EV mode for emissions-free journeys.
All-new from the ground up, the Artura presented McLaren engineers and designers with new opportunities to innovate, chief among these being how to preserve McLaren’s super-lightweight engineering philosophy when adding hybrid powertrain elements including an E-motor and battery pack.
At the heart of the Artura’s powertrain is McLaren’s all-new, 2,993 cc twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine. With a power output of 577 bhp – nearly 200 bhp per liter – and 431 lb ft of torque, the dry-sump aluminum engine is compact and lightweight; at just 353 pounds it weighs 110 pounds less than a McLaren V8 and is significantly shorter, enhancing packaging efficiency.
Working in harmony with the new V6 is the Artura’s compact axial flux E-motor, located within the transmission bell housing. Smaller and more power-dense than a conventional radial flux E-motor, it is capable of generating 94 bhp and 166 lb ft and boasts a power density per kilo 33% greater than the system used in the McLaren P1™. The instantaneous nature of the motor’s torque delivery – known as ‘torque infill – is key to the car’s razor-sharp throttle response. Exhilarating ‘off-the-line’ performance sees the Artura achieve 0-60 mph in just 3.0 seconds, with 0-124 mph taking 8.3 seconds and 0-186 mph 21.5 seconds. Top speed is limited to 205 mph.
There are three further core specifications: Performance, which has a sporting, functional aesthetic; TechLux, where the focus is on the technical luxury that the name suggests; and Vision, which displays a more avant-garde and adventurous look and feel.
