  • What are the specifications of McLaren Artura?

Founding member of the Supercar Majlis owners’ club, the largest supercar owners collective in the Middle East, and celebrated entrepreneur Qais Sedki experienced the thrill of McLaren’s first series-production High-Performance Hybrid supercar, Artura, at the Pure McLaren track day in Silverstone - the iconic circuit considered the Home of British Motor Racing, and a long-term fixture on the Formula 1 calendar.

Also known by his Instagram handle, Gloves in Gray, Qais swapped his beloved McLaren 765LT, personalized by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), for the wheel of the Artura, taking part in a day of on-track action and professional instruction from McLaren pro driver, former British GT and European GT4 Champion, Joe Osborne. And Qais came away with nothing but praise for the Artura’s stunning dynamic capabilities and compact, lightweight V6 hybrid powertrain.

“This car’s power delivery is fantastic, very linear, I’m loving it! We’re in ‘Track-Track ‘mode, Track on handling, Track on powertrain, ESC dynamic, and it is such a playful car. This is the sort of car that’s very confidence building.

I am thoroughly enjoying this circuit, and the fact that we have the torque infil from this hybrid system as well. It’s just a fantastic, good fun car to drive.”

Underpinned by the McLaren philosophy of super-lightweight engineering, the Artura is the first model to utilise the all-new McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) uniquely optimised for hybrids. The all-new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine with an E-motor produces a combined output of 671bhp and 531 lb-ft. of torque, while the 94bhp E-motor delivers instant torque of 166lb-ft, ensuring the sharpest-ever throttle response from a McLaren with 0-60mph in 3.0 seconds. Performance is further boosted with a curb weight of just 3,303lbs, the lightest in its class.
