British supercar maker McLaren has launched the Artura high-performance hybrid at a sticker price of Rs 5.09 crore (ex-showroom) in the Indian market. Designed at the McLaren Technology Center in Woking and hand-built at the adjoining McLaren Production Center, it comes with a 5-year warranty as standard. India is the 41st country in the world where McLaren starts sales of the Artura.
As the company’s first model built on the new MCLA carbon fiber platform, the McLaren Artura has a best-in-class curb weight of just 1,489kg. The supercar has four driving modes in the form of E-mode, Comfort, Sport and Track.
“We are delighted to bring the new McLaren Artura to India, offering our customers the very latest in automotive design and technology. Our impact on the Indian market in our first year has been outstanding and we look forward to continuing to provide our customers with exceptional service and the best driving experience,” said Paul Harris, Managing Director – APAC & China, McLaren Automotive.
The Artura hybrid supercar flaunts a ‘shrink-wrapped’ appearance that is identical to the company’s recent models and driven by McLaren’s design principle of ‘everything for a reason’. Feature-wise, you get electric heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (eHVAC), new digital instrument cluster, and smartphone mirroring.
Under the hood, the Artura houses a 3.0L V6 twin-turbo petrol engine coupled with a lithium-ion battery with a combined output of 671bhp and maximum torque of 720Nm. The engine is paired with an 8-speed transmission. The supercar accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds, while it reaches 200 km/h from a standstill in just 8.3 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 330 km/h.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged up to 80 percent in just 2.5 hours. In Pure EV mode, the supercar has a driving range of 31 km with a top speed of 130 kmph. The British marque claims that the Artura is the most fuel efficient McLaren ever built with CO2 emissions of 104g/km and a mileage of 4.6l/100km (WLTP certified).
