McLaren announced a few months ago that they were preparing a new model from their Ultimate series, now known to be a roadster called McLaren Elva.
This exclusive model focuses primarily on providing “pure driving pleasure” and is characterized by a more fluid interpretation of McLaren’s design vocabulary.
McLaren also honors classic M1A, M1B and M1C sports models from the 1960s with this roadster.
As expected, McLaren again used the 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine, which here has 815hp and 800Nm of torque (with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission).
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes less than three seconds, and reaches 200 km/h in 6.7 seconds.
McLaren Elva also has a new Active Air Management System (AAMS), optional windshield, active rear spoiler, carbon-ceramic brakes, an 8.0-inch touchscreen and lightweight carbon fiber seats.
All in all, this new McLaren two-seater with sleek lines and butterfly doors will be made in a limited edition (399 copies only), priced at £1,425,000 (costing $1,690,000 in the US).
Deliveries to first customers will start at the end of next year.
