Efficient Performance

McLaren Automotive pioneered hybrid technology to offer the ultimate performance in road cars with the iconic McLaren P1TM and Speedtail hypercars. Artura represents the pure distillation of this collective expertise and experience to create the next generation McLaren.

It is a plug-in hybrid and an ultra-light supercar that transitions between petrol and electric power in a seamless and programmed way to make the absolute best of both. When the power of petrol and electricity are combined, Artura produces a stunning 680PS – with the E-Motor adding up to 95PS and 225 Nm of torque, on demand.

The car is built with an advanced new McLaren Carbon Fibre Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) at its core and has a V6 twin-turbocharged hybrid petrol engine along with an eight-speed transmission and a compact e-motor. Weighing in at 50kg less than a V8, it produces the highest PS/litre per KG of any V6 on the market.

The revolutionary supercar inherits every attribute of a McLaren. With a trademark McLaren cockpit and advanced driver focus, the Artura offers unparalleled driving dynamics, lower emissions, faster throttle response, and the ability to run in pure EV mode.

A top speed of 330km/h and acceleration of 0-100km/h in just 3.0 seconds make it one of the fastest supercars on the market. At the same time, the Artura is the most fuel-efficient McLaren ever produced, with CO2 emissions of just 104g/km.
