The McLaren Artura can hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 3.0 seconds and cover the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds, according to official figures recently released by the automaker. Top speed is electronically limited to 330 km / h.
The Artura uses McLaren’s new M630 twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 with a 120-degree angle between the cylinder rows. It uses a hot vee layout that places the turbos in the valley. The cylinder head and block use 3D printed cores. The engine is 110 pounds (50 kilograms) lighter than the outgoing 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, in addition to being 7.48 inches (190 millimeters) shorter and 8.661 inches (220 millimeters) narrower.
The new engine alone produces 577 horsepower (430 kilowatts) and 432 pound-feet (585 Newton-meters). It redlines at 8,500 rpm. The electric motor provides 94 hp (70 kW) and 166 lb-ft (225 Nm). The total power of the system is 671 hp (500 kW) and 593 lb-ft (804 Nm).
The Artura has a 7.4 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that fits into the ground behind the driver. It allows the supercar to travel up to 30 kilometers on electric power. Battery recharges from zero to 80% in 2.5 hours on an EVSE outlet
