McLaren’s first hybrid outside the Ultimate Series will replace the 570S

Update 2/17/2021: The McLaren Artura PHEV has been revealed, and it features a number of first for the brand. We’re busy updating this review, but you can check out the full story in our recent article or enjoy the gallery we’ve posted below!

McLaren is set to launch a new hybrid sports car in 2020. Shown here in a batch of spy shots, this vehicle will be the first electrified model that won’t be part of the ultimate series. So far, McLaren has launched two hybrid supercars: the P1, built between 2013 and 2015, and the Speedtail, produced in 2019. This new hybrid sports car could be part of either the Super Series or the Sports Series.

Since the prototype is based on the 720S, it’s easy to assume that the production model will replace the current Super Series. On the other hand, the 720S is only marginally bigger than the 570S, which is part of the Sports Series. McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt also said that the company’s first hybrid sports car will be the replacement for the Sports Series lineup, so this is a scenario we need to consider as well. To keep things a bit simpler, I’m going to go with Flewitt’s statement and treat this hybrid prototype as a replacement for the 570S.

The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger

The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger

Well, it’s the Dodge Challenger Super Stock, and Only by 0.2 seconds in the quarter mile

The Artura is the stepping stone for McLaren moving into the future. It is the third hybrid model (behind the P1 and the Speedtail) and the first plug-in hybrid to roll out of the automaker’s factory. There was a lot of buzz surrounding its powertrain, but a few months into the launch, we now have some stats that give us an idea of how good (or bad) the Artura is.

As it turns out, the supercar can hit 60 mph from rest in three seconds flat and quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds. Impressive? Oh yes. However, it’s not as quick as the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock to a quarter-mile.

The Artura oozes speed even as it stands still

When McLaren woke up from its sleep in 2010 and started churning out fantastic supercars, some said it will only be temporary. One decade later, McLaren is still doing its thing, combining sleek-looking, low-slung cars with insane performance. With the Artura, the supercar maker managed to prove yet another thing: it is not afraid to switch it up every now and then just as it is not afraid to play with new tech.

10 Things You Must Know About The McLaren Artura

The McLaren Artura might change the game

For a while, McLaren was a bit of a wild card in the automotive industry. Almost 30 years ago, they gave us the F1, which was the fastest production car for over a decade. After that, they went quiet. This of course changed around 2010 when they announced their first supercar for the century – the MP4-12C. This was the beginning of McLaren’s offensive and cars like the 650S, 600LT, and 720S were spawned. Now, McLaren gives us the Artura and it’s a bit different than the others. Here’s what you need to know.

McLaren Breaks New Ground with the Arrival of the Artura

The McLaren Artura is here, and with it comes a lot of firsts for McLaren. It’s the first plug-in hybrid McLaren, even though it counts as McLaren’s third hybrid model behind the P1 and the Speedtail. It’s also the first McLaren to use the freshly developed 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, put in place of the bigger and heavier 3.8-liter V-8 unit that McLaren has used for its Sports Series models in recent years.

The Artura is also the first McLaren hybrid supercar that’s built on the automaker’s new MCLA platform. It’s the same architecture the British automaker developed to accommodate electrified powertrains. The Artura’s arrival sets the stage for McLaren’s electrified future that now looks a lot more compelling.

Did We Just Catch a McLaren GT Hybrid in the Wild?

This is a very interesting test mule

The McLaren GT was introduced in 2019, and we know for sure that the mule we see here is, in fact, a McLaren GT. Be that as it may, it was caught in a residential neighborhood in France by a friend of Topspeed, and it certainly raises a few questions. First, why is there a camouflaged McLaren GT cruising around France? Second, why was it parked outside a residential area? Third, why do the wheels have “Dyn Wheel” written all over them? Well, we think that McLaren might be testing its new V-6 hybrid drivetrain.
