McLaren Artura Hybrid Bows February 16th

Artura hybrid coming soon

  • Second hybrid from automaker and first in the Sports Series lineup

  • Expected to make more than 600 hp with electric motor help


McLaren‘s latest supercar and second-ever hybrid model is nearly here. The official release date for the much-anticipated McLaren Artura hybrid hypercar is February 16th, and it will be revealed, as is the new normal, in a big online event.

The Aruta is the replacement for the 570S and the rest of the Sports Series-badged cars, but this time it’s completely new. From the hybrid powertrain to the platform, this might be the automaker’s biggest evolution yet.

Combining a twin-turbo V6 in place of the usual 3.8L V8 with an electric motor, and may offer some level of drive to the front axle instead of just the rear. It’s expected to be a PHEV, helping to meet ever-increasing emissions regulation at home in the UK. Expect output to be above 600 hp, making it much more powerful than the 562 hp offered by the 570S, with the instant electric torque doing even more to improve performance. While the electric bits likely add weight, we’re sure McLaren will have some interesting measures in place to help combat the extra pudge.

From what we’ve seen of the car, the styling won’t depart dramatically from existing McLarens, but that’s not much of a surprise.

This is just McLaren’s second hybrid after the Speedtail. That car used a 310 hp rear-mounted motor to boost the car to 1,035 hp, but it drove only the rear wheels. That super series car was a three-seater like the F1, firmly showing its place in the McLaren company lineup.
