Almost all carmakers around the world are starting to venture into the world of electrification. This also applies to McLaren. The British brand has produced an environmentally friendly car, but they also put on the attention on the performance. Thus, McLaren Artura.
The manufacturer brings another breakthrough by introducing a super hybrid car with a V6 engine. But, this is not the first time for McLaren to introduce a hybrid car.
Previously McLaren had introduced the P1 Hypercar, which is one of the super-hybrid cars with the power of up to 903 hp, and can dash 0-100 km / h in 2, 8 seconds.
McLaren Artura is the first model based on the new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) advanced for HPH powertrains.
The supercar body has been planned to utilize super formed aluminum and carbon fiber to make it very light in weight, mainly as it comprises of crossbreed powertrain components including an electrical engine and battery pack.
The Artura has an ability to-weight proportion of 488PS/ton and the lightest dry load of 1,395kg. The parts establish only 130kg of weight, including a 88kg battery pack and 15.4kg motor.
Now, McLaren is back with another hybrid option that is no less tough than the P1 Hypercar. McLaren Artura is certain to be vicious on the asphalt. Reportedly, the Artura can produce up to 577 hp and 431 lb-ft of torque with a 3.0 L V6 engine.
The toughness of this engine will be combined with an electric motor that is capable of spitting 94 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque.
As a result, McLaren Artura can spend up to 671 hp when the two powertrains are combined. Mated with 8-speed automatic transmission, the hybrid car only needs 3 seconds to go from 0-100 km/hour. To reach 0-200 km/h, the car only needs 8.3 seconds, while 0-300 km / h can be reached in 21.5 seconds.
The battery pack in the hybrid system comprises five lithium-ion modules, with a total capacity of 7.4kWh and a drive range of 30 km.

As for the price, the McLaren Artura is priced at $225,000, and any interested party can enquire about the availability via the official website.
