$1.2 Million McLaren Artura Launches In Singapore
At the McLaren: The Legacy Lives On event which was held over the Formula 1 weekend from 30 Sep to 2 Oct, the brand unveiled its latest model - the Artura.
McLaren’s first-ever series-production High-Performance Hybrid (HPH) supercar, it is the first model built on all-new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA), uniquely optimised for HPH powertrains.
Despite the plug-in hybrid powertrain, the Artura is the lightest in its class with kerb weight (DIN) of just 1,498 kg. The total weight of hybrid components – which include an 88kg battery pack and 15.4 kg E-motor – is just 130 kg. Which is rather incredible given the Artura is able to run in pure EV mode for up to 31 km.
The all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine pairs with an E-motor and energy-dense battery pack, producing combined outputs of 680 PS (671 bhp) and 720 Nm (530 lb ft). The V6 alone produces 585 PS (577 bhp) – approaching 200 horsepower per litre – and 585 Nm.
The 95 PS E-motor delivers instant torque of up to 225 Nm, ensuring perhaps the sharpest-ever throttle response from a McLaren supercar: 0-100km/h in 3.0 seconds; 0-200km/h in 8.3 seconds; and 0-300km/h in 21.5 seconds.
Other innovations include a ground-breaking domain-based ethernet electrical architecture that reduces cabling by up to 25% and speeds up data transmission.
And perhaps one thing that purists will appreciate is the retention of McLaren’s trademark hydraulically-assisted steering.
The Artura retails at $1,198,888 without COE but with options.
