Mclaren Elva – Heritage and form over function is the mantra for Mclaren´s new extreme roadster
Focused on the pure driving experience, the new Mclaren Elva is not destined for the road or track. This sounds more like a Ferrari or a Lamborghini, because when you hear Mclaren you think of clinical precision. However, with the Elva, Mclaren is doing a throwback to the rowdy racecars from the 1960s. A very exclusive model with only 399 cars to be made.
Taking big inspiration from f1. Open air cockpit, and no window, is there to help you stay connected with what is happening around you. If you are worried about air in your face. Don’t. Mclaren has developed the car so that the air flows over the open cockpit. The system is called “active air management system” or AAMS.
Of course, the entire body is made from carbon fibre. Brakes are carbon ceramic and to help with downforce, there is an active rear wing. The latter will be much needed since the power plant underneath is a v8 paired with two turbos to deliver 815 hp and 800 Nm. The same engine as in the Senna.
The price starts from 1 533 675 euros or 16 207 928 sek, and for that, I dearly hope that the interior is water resistant.
