2020 McLaren Elva
The 2021 McLaren Elva is a brand-new supercar that the British firm added to its Ultimate Series lineup, alongside the Senna and the Speedtail. A two-seat open-cockpit design, it’s inspired by a series of race cars built by Bruce McLaren in the 1960s under the McLaren-Elva name. It’s McLaren’s first open-cockpit road car and its lightest road-going vehicle yet. A track-ready roadster with an aerodynamic design, the 2021 Elva features the most powerful iteration of McLaren’s twin-turbo, 4.0-liter V-8 engine. Rated at 804 horsepower, it slots above the Senna in terms of power and falls behind only the Speedtail hybrid. Let’s find out more about this beast in the review below.
The McLaren Artura Is Fast, But Not Fast Enough to Be a Dodge Challenger
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.
1993 McLaren F1
Update: The Spiritual Successor to the McLaren F1 - the Gordon Murrage T.50 - has launched with a similar three-seat configuration and ultra-lightweight, Cosworth-built engine, and the most impressive aerodynamic system of any supercar on the market today. Check out our full review of the Gordon Murray T.50 or all of our recent coverage of it
The McLaren F1 was unveiled in May 1992 and was the company’s first road-going production car. The idea was born in the late 1980s, when Gordon Murray, the technical director of McLaren’s Formula One, began sketching the F1 as a three-seat supercar. Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in 1991, Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof.
Not only powerful and quick, the F1 was also the world’s fastest production car. Its record endured from 1992 until 2005, when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron. The F1 spawned a couple of special-edition models such as the LM and the GT, but it was also used as a base for the GTR race car. Essentially a standard F1 with aerodynamic improvements, the GTR went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans in its first year on the race track.
Some 25 years have passed since its introduction and the F1 is already considered a classic. Usually changing owners for millions of dollars, the F1 is one of the very few multi-million-dollar supercars built in the 1990s.

Why The McLaren F1 Is The Greatest Car Ever Made

10 Things You Must Know About The McLaren Artura
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.
The McLaren Artura PHEV Lays the Foundation for an Electrified Future
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.
