The McLaren Artura can hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.0 seconds and cover a quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds, according to the car’s newly released official figures. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 205 mph (330 kph).
Artura uses a new McLaren M630 twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine with a 120-degree angle between the cylinder banks. It uses a hot vee layout that places the turbo inside a valley. Cylinder heads and blocks use 3D printed cores. The engine is 110 pounds (50 kilograms) lighter than the outgoing 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. In addition to being 7.48 inches (190 millimeters) shorter and 8.661 inches (220 millimeters) narrower.
The new engine alone produces 577 horsepower (430 kilowatts) and 432 pound-feet (585 Newton-meters). This reduces to 8,500 rpm. The electric motor contributed 94 hp (70 kW) and 166 lb-ft (225 Nm). The total system output is 671 hp (500 kW) and 593 lb-ft (804 Nm).
Artura has a 7.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that blends into the floor behind the driver. This allows the supercar to cover a distance of up to 18.64 miles (30 kilometers) on electric power. The battery charges from zero to 80 percent in 2.5 hours in the EVSE socket.
