McLaren Artura 2021 in Azores Orange to debut at Milano Monza
McLaren has released new images of the Artura in the Azores Orange, ahead of its Italian debut at the first-ever Milano Monza motor show (MIMO; June 10-13). The hybrid supercar’s cabin is also finished in Ember Orange with TexLux trims and carbon fiber chunks, and it rides on 10-spoke super-light alloy rims (19-inch front, 20-inch at the back).
As the automaker’s first production hybrid supercar, the Artura is powered by a new 3.0-liter M630 twin-turbo V6 petrol engine capable of generating 585 hp at 7,500 rpm (red lines at 8,500 rpm ) and 585 Nm of torque from 2,250 to 7,000 rpm. . The six-pot unit weighs just 160kg, about 50kg lighter than a McLaren V8.
In addition to the internal combustion engine, a lightweight (15.4 kg) axial flow electric motor is integrated inside the bell housing of the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. This engine provides an additional 95 hp and 225 Nm of propulsion and can operate independently up to 130 km / h.
Together they produce 680 hp and 720 Nm of torque, allowing a zero to 100 km / h sprint time of about three seconds and a 0-200 km / h time of 8.3 seconds. Top speed is limited to 330 km / h. The motor is powered by a 7.4 kWh lithium-ion battery with a nominal range of 30 km on a full charge. The Artura is priced at 231,000 euros in Italy (RM 1.16 million).
Joining the V6 hybrid supercar at MIMO are the 720S Coupe and the most powerful Longtail model, the 765LT. The 720S is also finished in Azorean Orange, with a Stealth Pack and Carbon Black Alcantara interior. The 765LT, on the other hand, is presented in Lantana Purple.
McLaren customers will also have the opportunity to drive their cars on the hallowed Autodromo, the very circuit where 10 McLaren Formula 1 cars claimed victory. A McLaren GT with panoramic roof and a 600LT will also be on display at the Monza circuit, both in Silica White.
