Released in 2022, McLaren’s first V6 supercar is, in many ways, as significant as the MP4-12C, launched in the company’s first model year 2012. That car, and all subsequent McLarens, have been powered by V8 engines until now. And, apart from the limited-production McLaren P1, the Artura is only the second hybrid in the marque’s history. Efficiency is key to the Artura’s design, here with a stronger, lighter and stiffer carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, the first built in-house by McLaren. an axial-flux motor mounted between the engine and new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that weighs only 34 pounds but adds 94 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque. Electric-only range may get you to the corner market and back if round trip is 11 miles or less.
