McLaren knows supercars, but the new Artura does things a little differently to what we’ve seen before. Gone is the British automaker’s favored V8, replaced by a new in-house hybrid design. That pairs a 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo gas engine with an e-motor.
The result is 671 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque, good for 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds. Top speed is limited to 205 mph. However thanks to the 7.4 kWh battery – charged either from an external charger or via regenerative power – you’ll also be able to drive up to 19 miles (WLTP) on electric power alone. Four different drive modes will adjust how the Artura uses its power .
Outside, it’s a blend of familiar and new. McLaren’s iconic dihedral doors are included, of course. Inside, a new cabin design features a twin-display infotainment system and a stealth mode, which trims all the graphics back to the bare minimum so you can focus on the drive ahead. Deliveries begin Q3 2021, with pricing from $225,000.
