McLaren Artura in Malaysia

McLaren Artura is McLaren’s first series production hybrid model

The McLaren Artura has made its debut in Malaysia. McLaren’s first series production hybrid, the supercar is built on a new platform called the McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) which combines an all-new carbon fibre monocoque passenger tub, a new chassis with aluminium crash beams and rear subframe, and a first-to-market domain-based ethernet electrical architecture.

A plug-in hybrid, the McLaren Artura also has an all-new engine – a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine – with an axial-flux motor and battery pack that produces a combined output of 671bhp and 720Nm. The power from the combustion engine is 577bhp – approaching 200 horsepower per litre – and 585Nm. The 160kg V6 engine weighs 50kg less than the McLaren V8. The weight-saving, combined with the lightweight body, super-formed aluminium and carbon fibre, results in a class-leading power-to-weight ratio of 481bhp/tonne. The transmission is eight-speed with e-reverse.

The time from zero to 100km/h is 3.0 seconds, 0-200km/h takes 8.3 seconds; and 0-300km/h is achieved in 21.5 seconds.

Yet, the Artura also lays claim to being the most fuel-efficient McLaren ever produced at 50+ mpg and the lowest emissions of 129g/km CO2 in combined EU WLTP*). The 7.4kWh battery supports 30km* electric-only range.

The McLaren Artura has a five-year vehicle warranty; six-year battery warranty and 10-year body warranty
