McLaren’s new plug-in hybrid supercar is available to order, wearing a price tag of $449,500 before on-road costs.
Customer deliveries of the 2022 McLaren Artura will begin in the fourth quarter of 2021.
The Artura is underpinned by the new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture and packs a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol V6 and an electric motor.
Total system outputs are 500kW of power and 720Nm of torque, with a pure-electric range of 30km from its 7.4kWh lithium-ion battery.
It’s good for a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.0 seconds, a 0-200km/h time of 8.3 seconds, and a top speed of 330km/h.
If you’re concerned about the sound it makes, McLaren has assured it won’t use fake engine noises.
Instead, sound from the exhaust is piped into the cabin.
The Artura uses a new e-differential on the rear axle, though it has stuck with hydraulically-assisted steering and McLaren’s Proactive Damping Control.
Along with the battery housing, the MCLA has a new electrical system that allows McLaren to include a full range of active driver assists and a fresh infotainment system.
Inside, there are also new Clubsport seats designed to allow tall drivers to stretch out even with the backrest reclined, and the interior is replete with Alcantara trim.
