Hybrid McLaren Artura marked the future of the brand’s supercars – DRIVE

The design corresponds to the corporate style. Slightly smaller than the model 720S – in the hierarchy of the brand, the coupes turned out to be neighbors in the Supercars class. The length, width and height of the hybrid novelty are 4539 (–4), 1913 (–17) and 1193 mm (–3). The wheelbase is 2640 mm (–30).

Supercar creators McLaren Artura no need to worry – the car has firmly reserved its place in history even before the official premiere. In short, we are talking about the first mass hybrid of the company and the beginning of the decline of the era of petrol models from Woking. The novelty boasts an acceleration from standstill to 100 km / h in 3.0 s, to 200 in 8.3, to 300 in 21.5. The car will cover a quarter mile in 10.7 seconds, and its top speed is 330 km / h. Of course, one cannot fail to mention the power reserve without using the internal combustion engine – in this mode, the “Briton” can accelerate to 130 km / h and travel up to 30 km.

We can say that the presentation of the coupe took place with the support of the Formula 1 car MCL35M, which a couple of days ago was the first car of the upcoming season. By the way, this year for the team McLaren Daniel Ricciardo will speak – he also took part in the advertising campaigns new items.

Wheels on the front axle are equipped with Pirelli P Zero or P Zero Corsa tires measuring 235/35 R19, on the rear – 295/35 R20. At the front, there are six-piston calipers with carbon-ceramic discs with a diameter of 390 mm, and at the back are four-piston mechanisms with 380-mm rotors.

The coupe is based on a completely new modular platform MCLA (McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture). It is a carbon-fiber “tub” (its weight is 82 kg) with aluminum subframes at the front and rear. The chassis was originally designed for hybrids and is designed to keep the mass of such vehicles at the level of supercars without batteries. Thanks to this, the weight of the novelty with all liquids and a tank filled to 90% was 1498 kg. In a “dry” state – 1395 kg. The novelty is 82 kg heavier than the coupe that left the lineup 570S… It exchanged a hundred in 3.2 s (+0.2), and the maximum speed was 328 km / h (–2).

The power steering is electro-hydraulic. Shock absorbers are adaptive. Anti-roll bars are conventional. At the rear, a new multi-link is used, saving up to 2.4 kg on each side compared to its predecessors.

The power plant has four operating modes: E-Mode, Comfort, Sport and Track. The stabilization system has three: Standard, Dynamic and Off. Also, the car is equipped with an electronic assistant with a controlled drift – Variable Drift Control (VDC).

The base hides an aluminum V6 3.0 M630 (585 hp, 584 N • m) with twin turbocharging, where the camber angle of the cylinder block is 120 degrees. Unit weight – 160 kg. It is assisted by an electric motor (15 kg, 95 HP, 225 N • m), located in the body of an eight-speed “robot” SSG with two clutches. Reverse gear like Ferrari SF90, – electric. Power is supplied from a 7.4 kWh lithium-ion battery, and 80% of the charge can be replenished in 2.5 hours using the EVSE cable. The total output of the hybrid installation is 680 hp. and 720 N • m. Rear-wheel drive. Differential – electronically controlled.

Inside, there is dual-zone climate control, a digital dashboard and an eight-inch vertical touchscreen classic for McLaren. The MIS II media system supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto protocols, has track telemetry and is voice controlled.

The supercar is already available for order in four trim levels: Standard, Performance, Techlux and Vision. “At the base” is adaptive cruise control and high beam, lane control and road sign recognition. Car deliveries are scheduled for the summer. In the UK, prices start at £ 185,500 (RUB 19 million). Against the background of starting 866 thousand (88.6 million rubles) for a hybrid McLaren P1 (916 hp, 900 N • m) in 2013 it looks more than reasonable. Let us recall that the P1 hypercar accelerated from zero to 100 km / h in 2.8 s (–0.2), the maximum speed was 350 km / h, and the electric range was about 10 km.
