McLaren Artura review with 0-60mph, 1/4-mile & drift TEST!


Meet the McLaren Artura!

It’s McLaren’s first hybrid supercar, and Mat’s got his hands on one to find out whether it has what it takes to compete with hybrid supercar class-leaders like the Ferrari 296 GTB!

So for starters, let’s check out the design. One thing’s for sure, it’s certainly a looker! Around the back you’ll find an integrated spoiler, two huge (and real!) exhaust tips and a metal cover for the engine. Around the side you’ll find some huge (and real) air vents, and up front there’s a huge front splitter and a smart set of headlights. It’s possible to swap the front splitter and rear diffuser to be made out of carbon fibre (for an extra cost), and there’s a choice of 15 colours to choose from.

Pop inside and the Arturo’s design is minimalist but impeccably well made. You sit in Alcantara-covered bucket seats that can be adjusted forwards, back, up and down, and there’s Alcantara across the dash too. It also covered the steering wheel, which in traditional McLaren style is kept simple without any integrated buttons. There’s a new infotainment system and set of digital dials, and it works pretty intuitively with settings and features shown across both screens. It may be relatively basic, but it does the job it needs to do.

Then we have the glorious engine! Hidden under the cover around the rear you’ll find a 3-litre twin-turbo V6 that can deliver 585hp. There’s also an electric motor hidden under the skin, which combines with the engine to produce 680hp and 720Nm of torque. This power is sent to the rear wheels only, and is good for 0-60mph in 3 seconds and a top speed of 205mph!

So it’s an impressive specimen, but with prices starting from just under £190,000, is it really worth it?! You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
