2022 McLaren Artura MODEL OVERVIEW

Pros

  • Clever new twin-turbo V-6
  • Promised improved build quality
  • User-friendly improvements

Cons

  • No convertible version (yet)
  • Not as recognizable as Ferrari or Lamborghini

This could be the birth of a new McLaren, potentially the automaker's most important car since the 2012 MP4-12C. It's the Artura, McLaren's first hybrid since the P1 halo car. Whereas previous models have all used iterations of the same twin-turbo V-8 and carbon chassis, the Artura features an all-new V-6 installed in the first in-house monocoque to underpin a modern McLaren. It's light, agile, powerful, efficient, and more exciting than anything that's come out of Woking in years.

What's New

  • The Artura is an all-new model for 2022
  • New in-house carbon fiber monocoque
  • Novel electric heating/air conditioning system
  • All-new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 hybrid powertrain
  • Eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission

The Artura's V-6 Engine

Every modern McLaren from the humble and athletic 570S to the widow-making P1 has made use of a version of the automaker's twin-turbo V-8, but the engineers in Woking are doing something different with the Artura. Mid-mounted in the Artura's new carbon fiber monocoque sits a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6, its banks spread 120 degrees to drop the center of gravity and make room for both turbos in the valley between each wall of cylinders. Also new is an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic, replacing McLaren's seven-speed unit.

By itself, the new V-6 delivers 577 hp and 431 lb-ft of torque and it'll rev to 8,500 rpm. The six-cylinder is 5.9 inches shorter front-to-back and 110 pounds lighter than McLaren's V-8. McLaren used 3D printing to produce the intricate cores used to cast the engine block.

McLaren's First Hybrid Since The P1

Not only is the Artura a hybrid, it makes use of a novel axial flux motor, which generates less heat and produces more power per weight than a more conventional radial-flux design. It weighs just 34 pounds. The motor produces 94 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque, sourcing energy from a 7.4-kWh lithium-ion battery. On Europe's generous WLTP test cycle, it can propel the Artura for up to 19 miles on electricity alone.

McLaren Artura: Power, Torque, 0-60, and Top Speed

Between the new twin-turbo V-6 and that clever hybrid gear, the Artura delivers power and torque numbers that rival a traditional twin-turbo V-8. Total system output sums to 671 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque, compared to 710 hp and 568 lb-ft in a McLaren 720S. McLaren is estimating an electronically-limited top speed of 205 mph and 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds; the quarter-mile should be dispatched in 10.7 seconds. It's also set to be the most efficient McLaren ever built.

McLaren Artura Price

Pricing for the Artura will start at $229,500 including destination. That positions the new model as the entry-level model in McLaren's "Super Series" (below the 720S and 765LT). With the discontinuation of the "Sport Series" that included the 570S, 600LT, and 620R, the McLaren GT is now the automaker's least expensive vehicle.
