The 2022 McLaren Artura can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds, 0-200km/h in 8.3 seconds and 0-300km/h in 21.5 seconds, while doing the standing ¼ mile run in just 10.7 seconds. The Top Speed of the 2022 McLaren Artura has been electronically limited to 205 mph.

From the time McLaren sold its very first supercar, the F1, it had nothing but a potent V8. Times change and enormous power can currently be obtained out of smaller engines mated to an electric motor, the reason why McLaren Artura is fast.

Their most recent news release explains the powertrain development. As of now, every other V6 engine fires at 60 or 90 degrees, McLaren decided something different with a 120-degree “hot-vee” angle. A brand new “seamless-shift” 8-speed automatic transmission has been introduced, and the crown gem is an axial-flux electric motor(from Ricardo) integrated into bell-housing.

Theall-new 2022 Hybrid Artura can drive in complete silence with pure electric mode for upto 19 miles. Having an 8,500 rpm redline, the all-new V6 produces 577 hp and 585-nm of torque. The electric motor alone makes 95hp and an immediate 225 nm of torque, giving the Artura a combined output of 67 hp along with 530 lb-ft of torque.

The broad-angle of the V6 powertrain allows the turbochargers to sit within the edges in a ‘hot vee’ arrangement, which also serves efficiency as are less restrictive and improves thermal efficiency.

It takes 3.0 seconds to sprint from zero to 60 mph, 8.3 seconds to 120 mph, and a blistering 21.5 seconds to reach 186 mph to an electronically limited top speed of 205 mph. The dry-sump engine is compact and weighs only 160 kg, which is 110 pounds less than the outgoing McLaren V8. The Artura will be the first vehicle to use the new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA), which will be the basis for most future cars. 

Providing the electric-only capability is a 7.4kWh dense battery pack that sits on the cooling manifold, shared with the new ventilation and air conditioning system, to control the air temperature in the cabin. The foundations of this system were taken from the ultimate GT from the company, the Speedtail.

The rear suspension uses an advanced configuration to increase stability. It reduces understeer when accelerating out from a corner, whereas the e diff and the down-force offered by the integral rear spoiler ensure unbelievable agility at a low rate and a top degree of stability at high speed. McLaren should begin taking the Artura to clients starting from the 3rd quarter. Also, every Artura comes standard with a six-year battery warranty, plus a 10-year body warranty.
