The Artura is McLaren´s Hail Mary. Starting with a clean sheet and an obvious push towards electrification, the people that brought the game changing MP4-12C were once again under the pressure to deliver something spectacular, and they might have just done that.

A completely new monocoque with several different types of carbon fiber tips the scales at just 82 kg. The complete car weights just under 1500 kg with all its fluids.

The Artura is obviously a McLaren, but deviates in its design with the rather similarly designed model lineup, apart from the Senna off course. It is small, much like the 570s, has huge air intakes and vents, and the result is an aggressive face, and a slim rear.
