McLaren Automotive has just unveiled its eagerly-awaited new hybrid lightweight Artura supercar to the world.
With a jaw-dropping design and capable of zipping from 0-62mph in just 3 seconds – and a lower-entry price tag starting from £185,000 – we’re sure that this one will set a few hearts racing …
Capable of a top speed of 205mph, the new Artura will also be made here at home in Woking’s iconic global headquarters and the first models are expected to be delivered to new customers later this year.
This gorgeous, super-lightweight vehicle boasts a luxury supercar design both inside and out, with an all-round focus on the driving experience.
Those who splash out will also benefit from a ‘shrink-wrapped’ experience in the exterior and an ergonomic dashboard inside, complete with an all-new McLaren infotainment and connectivity system.
McLaren’s first series production hybrid supercar, the Artura is also the first supercar to use the all-new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture specially designed for the next generation of electrified supercars and can even complete journeys of up to 30km completely emissions-free.
“Every drop of McLaren’s experience and expertise has been poured into the Artura which delivers all of the performance, driver engagement and dynamic excellence for which McLaren is renowned, with the additional benefit of electric driving capability,” said Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer at McLaren Automotive.
“This is a landmark moment…as we demonstrate that lightweight engineering and electrification must go hand-in-hand to deliver agile performance and driver engagement as part of an electrified future.”
The McLaren Technology Centre in Woking is headquarters for the McLaren Group worldwide. Consisting of two buildings – the original McLaren Technology Centre, which acts as the main office location, and the newer McLaren Production Centre, primarily used for making McLaren Automotive cars.
Designed by renowned architect Norman Foster, the building which is now home to around 1,000 staff was shortlisted for the 2005 Stirling Prize.
