McLaren Artura Hybrid Design Influences

Every aspect of the McLaren Artura is new and marks the beginning of a new era for the pioneering British company. That said, it does pay tribute to a few past concepts in McLaren design history. For instance, the Artura take notes from the McLaren P1TM Hybrid Hypercar, which was unveiled in 2012. The Artura also draws inspiration from the more recent Speedtail Hyper-GT, which entered production this year as McLaren’s fastest ever car with a top speed of 250 mph. As Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive, puts it: 

“Every element of the Artura is all-new – from the platform architecture and every part of the High-Performance Hybrid powertrain, to the exterior body, interior and cutting-edge driver interface – but it draws on decades of McLaren experience in pioneering super-lightweight race and road car technologies to bring all of our expertise in electrification to the supercar class.”

McLaren Aruta Hybrid Design Updates

The McLaren Artura will be the first car to be built on an all-new platform architecture optimized for electrification. However, you can still expect the Artura to further McLaren’s commitment to super-lightweight engineering principles. The additional mass of the High-Performance Hybrid system, for example, has been largely offset by the application of weight-saving technologies throughout the chassis, body, and powertrain. Additionally, the McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) at the heart of the Artura not only enables the car’s class-leading weight advantage but is also the base for the dynamic excellence inherent in every McLaren. Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.

Performance Highlights: New Twin-Turbocharged Engine

The new Artura marks the debut of an all-new compact twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine, designed to combine with an electric motor in a new lightweight High-Performance Hybrid powertrain that retains the performance benefits of McLaren’s larger capacity V8 engines and has the additional attraction of improved torque response at low engine speeds to deliver scintillating acceleration. The Artura can also run on electric power alone for everyday emission-free journeys around Wellington. Here are some highlights from the new engine:

  • 600hp (38hp more than what the 570S offers, all with a hybrid engine)
  • 20 miles of pure electric range 
  • Instant Torque E-Motor
  • Starting Price $225,000
