McLaren unveils new Artura hybrid hypercar at the British Motor Show this August
McLaren Automotive will have a major presence at the British Motor Show, headlining with the all-new Artura – the brand's first high-performance hybrid supercar. The show will be held at the Fanborrough Exhibition Centre.
Covered in Ember Orange, the Artura's appearance will remain true to the brand's tradition of innovation and will demonstrate advanced technological features, and new design approaches.
Built at the McLaren Composites Technology Centre in the Sheffield region, the vehicle features an all-new 120-degrees twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6, assisted by a compact 94bhp axial-flux E-motor. The total output with this combination is 680hp and 720Nm, which ensures pretty quick runs measured at 0-100km/h in 3 seconds, 0-200km/h in 8.3 seconds and 0-300 in 21.5 seconds.
Along with the new Artura, the audience at the show will have the chance to see a full range of McLaren series production cars, including a 720S in both Coupe and Spider form. Also on display will be a GT finished in Serpentine finish.
We are delighted to support the British Motor Show, located just a short drive from Woking, just as the new Artura heralds an exciting new chapter for McLaren. The Artura represents the full force of McLaren – not just our first ten years as a volume luxury supercar manufacturer, but six decades of innovation and success in high performance. It joins our acclaimed series-production range alongside the 720S – the benchmark supercar – and the GT, our most accessible high-performance car yet, Brett Soso, Managing Director – Europe, Middle East & Africa, McLaren Automotive
