With the sculptural 2023 McLaren Artura supercar, McLaren embraces a hybridized future of high performance. A novel, lightweight structure supports the recently unveiled mid-engine two-seater. It also creates a plug-in hybrid model, another first, by combining a twin-turbo V6, a first for the brand, with a battery-electric engine. A total of 671 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque are produced by the pair. The estimated performance is emphasized by a 2.6-second zero-to-60 mph time and a top speed of 205 mph. Complete with pronounced air vents and scissor-style doors, its exterior is purely McLaren. The 2023 Artura includes a more luxurious and roomy interior than the 720S, as well as several convenience and driving-assistance systems.
The Artura is an all-new model that features a hybrid V-6 powertrain and introduces a new platform (called MCLA) for the British supercar-maker. The Artura primarily exemplifies McLaren’s function-before-fashion philosophy inside. Yet, the cabin is adorned with fancier materials like microsuede and leather. Also, the carbon fibre is less obvious than it is on most other models. The Artura is no exception to the company’s minimalist cabin designs, which keep the amount of physical hardware to a minimum and use button-free steering wheels.
Engine, Motor & Performance
A new hybrid twin-turbo V6 that produces a combined 671 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque powers the Artura. A 7.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is positioned under the back of the cabin and powers an e-motor that is housed inside the casing of the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Even 11 miles of all-electric driving can be accomplished with the new powertrain. The vehicle is swift, but it may also be rather covert, and it lacks the satisfying sound of comparable sports cars. The company’s new Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA), which is touted to be lighter than its predecessor’s construction, is also included for the first time in the Artura, another McLaren vehicle. Although it has a softer side that offers a more comfortable ride for commuting or highway cruising, handling is razor sharp and fun to pitch around a racecourse.

While most buyers tend to overlook the infotainment system in a McLaren, the Artura has a noticeable 8.0-inch vertically oriented touchscreen with standard features. This includes features like SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, built-in navigation, and a variety of audio gear. Fewer speakers are preferred by those who want to keep their car as light as possible, while more powerful surround-sound systems may be preferred by others.
