McLaren Artura Arriving This Summer

McLaren Artura Arriving This Summer

Published: February 15, 2022 | By: American Luxury Staff

As of February of last year, McLaren’s Artura hybrid supercar was expected to be in production within months, with deliveries slated for the summer or early fall. But a statement from the company this winter puts a significant delay on initial deliveries of the super-light sports, and as of now first examples are expected about a year late.

The Artura is McLaren’s present production figurehead. A press release published by McLaren in April details the reasons why: as a hybrid, it is both a company statement of purpose and a no-excuses representation of what a hybrid-powered sports can be when the technology is used to its potential. Its gas-burner is a V6, and indications are that McLaren is moving away from its V8 for regular production models.

McLaren is presenting the Artura as a daily driver that borrows from more exotic McLarens: the liquid cooling technologies had their genesis in the Speedtail. It is capable of thrilling zero-emissions commuting and errand-running, with an electric-only range of 19 miles. The extreme light weight of the powertrain is also a first engineering salvo, and marks the beginning of a trend all by itself.

The model’s acceleration figures have been confirmed: the Artura can launch to 60 MPH in 3 seconds, to 124 MPH in 8.3 seconds, and to 186 MPH in 21.5 seconds.
