Check out my walkaround and all the details and specs of the new Artura
Check out my detailed walkaround of the all-new McLaren Artura – new platform, new V6 plug-in hybrid drivetrain, new transmission, new way of all the electronics on board talking to each other, new interior and infotainment and even new Pirellis with chips in them!
Part of McLarens new Supercar Series, this will reach 186mph (300kph) in just over 21 seconds. And it keep hydraulic power steering. Standby for a review later this year.
Here’s the details:
All-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol M630 engine (‘Hot Vee’ with turbos placed within the 120-degree V) plus an E-motor and energy-dense battery pack, producing combined outputs of 680PS (671bhp) and 720Nm (530lb ft)
585PS (577bhp) – approaching 200 horsepower per litre – and 585Nm from all-new V6
95PS E-motor delivers instant torque of up to 225Nm,
0-100kph (62mph) in 3.0 seconds
0-200km/h (124mph) in 8.3 seconds
0-300km/h (186mph) in 21.5 seconds
50+mpg, 129g/km CO2 in combined EU WLTP
7.4kWh battery supports 30km (19miles) electric-only range
Plug-in charging – 80% in 2.5 hours
New lightweight eight-speed transmission integrates McLaren’s first electronic-differential. No reverse ‘gear’ – the E-motor does the reversing by rotating in the opposite direction.
Revs to 8500rpm
The total weight of hybrid components is 130kg (includes an 88kg battery pack and 15.4kg E-motor), resulting in a DIN kerbweight of 1,498kg
Weight reduction partly achieved by reducing electric cabling by 25% thanks to unique domain-based ethernet electrical architecture – basically it’s wireless communication – and it’s faster!
New rear suspension concept, uprated electro-hydraulic steering and Proactive Damping Control
New interior with all key controls accessible with hands on the wheel;new 8in HD touchscreen infotainment system; smartphone mirroring; Over-The-Air (OTA) updates
All-new Clubsport seat, combines the range of motion expected of a moveable backrest with the light weight and support of a bucket seat – the whole seat pivots as one through an elliptical arc when adjusted. Comfort seat option is also available
First model to be built on all-new McLaren Carbon Lightweight
Architecture (MCLA), optimised for HPH powertrains
Lightweight body featuring superformed aluminium and carbon fibre
Entire rear clamshell is engineered and superformed as one panel.
Signature McLaren Dihedral doors remain but open closer to the body.
Four powertrain (drive) modes:
E-mode for 30km (19miles) of electric-only driving.
Comfort mode maximises range and efficiency – engine shut off under 40kph (25mph) and extended stop and start mode
Sport and Track modes: electric power is deployed in an increasingly aggressive manner for low-end response and acceleration (‘torque infill’).
Separate handling mode choices adjust damper firmness and the degree of Electronic Stability Control intervention
Pirelli Cyber Tyre technology: comprising hardware and software integrated with the Artura’s electronic systems and featuring an electronic ‘chip’ inside each tyre, generates real-time data and relays it to the car’s stability control systems
Carbon ceramic brakes and lightweight aluminium calipers
