From their spiders to their longtail versions, they’ve proven to know a thing or two about building top-performance cars. Each time a new supercar model comes out from brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini, it seems, McLaren is always there to say “Hey, here’s our version, and it kinds better than yours!” And this exact point brings us to the Artura. It features a V6 and some cool hybrid features which combined propel the car to insane speeds. Want to find a McLaren Artura for sale or buy your Artura online? Find out more about this amazing car in our review.
The McLaren Artura price sits at $238,000 for the base model. And if you are thinking, this is less than some McLarens, you are right as the car is up to $100,000 cheaper than the 750S. All this while offering performance figures that could rival the more expensive McLaren models.With the V6 gas engine and the hybrid features working in tandem, the McLaren Artura horsepower is impressive at 671hp. Simply put, the Artura is built to turn heads and break necks, and this is what we will be looking at in our McLaren Artura review.So, if you’re ready, lets dive straight in.
You may be asking yourself where was the McLaren Artura made? All McLarens are built at the company’s assembly in Surrey England. The first Artura McLaren came out in 2022 and was McLaren’s first high-performance hybrid sports car. Straightway a McLaren Artura review gave some impressive performance figures and a superb curb-to-weight ratio. The reason for this was the McLaren Artura horsepower coupled with its hybrid battery that gave the car an amazing grunt. For the 2023 McLaren Artura, the company didn’t make any major changes on their Artura and continued with the previous year’s specs. The same was true for the new 2024 model. As for how many McLaren Artura were produced, the company didn’t really release any official figures.As for how many McLaren Artura were produced, the company didn’t really release any official figures.
The 2023 McLaren Artura specs are quite impressive. This is a hybrid that coupled with the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 also comes with a 7kW battery. According to McLaren, the battery will give you a solid 19 miles on a full charge. This hybrid feature also means that the Artura is friendly for the environment with 104g/km of carbon emissions. But how fast is it? Very fast. The mid-engine V6 offers impressive horsepower and torque figures with 671 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque. The Artura has a weight of 3,443 pounds. The McLaren Artura 0-60 mph is only 2.6 seconds and the McLaren Artura's top speed is 205 mph. As for fuel consumption, The Artura can do 21 miles to the gallon on highways. Note however that these are company stats. In the real world, of course, we know that such figures will drop, because we are smart drivers…right? And yes, you can choose between different driving modes based on how you are feeling. In normal mode, you may notice that the Artura takes its time to accelerate but change this to sport mode and the car takes a whole new form with immediate acceleration to stunning speeds. If you are driving around town, you could opt for the electric-only driving which is silent and won't cause a stir…only that the sight of the Artura McLaren is sure to get the crowds pointing in your direction. The brakes are excellent thanks to the fact that they are actual brakes without the regenerative braking stuff. The steering is responsive, smooth, and accurate. If you decide that you still want to continue in electric mode on the highway, then it still performs impressively considering that you can hit 81mph. But on the flip side, you will burn out the batteries really quick. That said the turning circle is quite poor and may be annoying when trying to get into tight corners. The brakes work great to slow the car down and are immediately responsive. The steering also comes into its own here and you finally get to appreciate what McLaren has done with refining the steering systems. As for the suspension, how it feels depends on which drive mode you select. For instance, with normal mode, the suspension feels soft and able to absorb the bumps and uneven terrain. Switch to sport mode and as more power is sent to the wheels, the suspension also becomes firmer. And you can even switch it up a notch with the track mode which stiffens the suspension further ready for the smoothest road or even the race track.
For the 2023 McLaren Artura, the company didn’t find the need to make any major changes on their Artura and continued with the previous year’s specs. This is true for the 2024 model as well. As they say, don't fix perfection.
The McLaren Artura interior has plenty of suede, sufficient sitting for two. Forward visibility is great thanks to the low set McLaren Artura design for the dash and the side and rear visibility also score top marks. The screen on the infotainment system is highly responsive and the graphics are much better than what you’ll find in say, the 675LT. It is also super easy to control with the only notable downside being that you control the AC from the screen which can be annoying. You can also access powertrain and chassis control on the far sides of the dashboard. You get the Altura with club sports seats which have received plenty of great reviews over the standard comfort seats. For one, the backrest can be adjusted for an even more comfortable driving position. Don’t go looking for a glovebox in the Artura because you won’t find one. Thankfully, there are plenty of other places where you can store your small stuff. There is a place to keep your coffee near the drivers arm and another place behind the infotainment system. There is also a section under the front armrest to put your water bottles too. Locate the gear selector and you will see a slim space where you can place your mobile phone. And you can even place your wallet in the seat belt slots as well. And while there aren’t any back seats, there is space behind the two seats where you can place your coat or your small bag. Due to the battery package and the enclosed engine compartment, you will get less storage space in the Artura than say the 570S. The only other storage space you get is in the frunk which will give you just 160 liters. Keep in mind that this is also where you will be storing the vehicle's charging cables so that leaves you with even less cargo space.
One of the major concerns with McLaren Artura exterior design is that it doesn’t make huge changes to its models each year and buyers are all too familiar with its exterior design elements which could cause one to believe that it is the same underneath the carbon fiber skin. You’d be forgiven for mistaking the McLaren Artura design with the 570S especially when viewing it from the front. But move a little closer and you’re able to decipher unique design elements such as the slim brake lights, an inbuilt rear spoiler, and a couple of exhausts that stick out the rear. On the sides of the Artura are massive air vents which suck up air and send it to the roaring V6 all housed in a carbon fiber frame.
Coupled with a rather minimalist-looking infotainment system, the instrument panel looks different in the McLaren than what you’ll find in say the Porsche. In the 2023 McLaren Artura, it has a portrait setting. With an adjustable wheel, however, you can alter the angle of the instrument panel making it easier for you to see while on the road. It also comes with switches and buttons allowing you to access most of the controls without ever letting go of the steering wheel. As for the McLaren Artura technology, it has added a new electric differential at the back which sends power to the right wheels when on a cruise. The hybrid feature of the Altura offers some huge benefits. First off, the power from the battery will overlap the lag you get from the turbos which then means that you can access the torque whenever you want it. And the car is pretty fast too with the McLaren Artura 0-60 mph of 2.6 seconds. And while you may expect those batteries to add more weight, the McLaren Altura is still lighter than the Lotus Emira for instance. The sound of that V6 will get you wanting to press down on the pedal more.
You may be asking yourself; how much is a McLaren Artura worth? First off, let’s just point out the elephant in the room; McLarens are not cheap. Now that we have that out of the way, there are 4 McLaren Artura trim levels. The base model McLaren Artura price sits at $238,000. Buyers can also choose between the Performance model starting at $242200, the TechLux model at $242400, and the Vision model McLaren Artura for sale also starting at $242400. When shopping for a McLaren Artura for sale, you may decide to opt for, say an Audi R8 or a Lambo Huracan, then know this, they are both great options but simply will not offer the level of driving experience that you’ll get in the Artura not to mention electric-only driving.
All in all, the 2023 McLaren Altura specs result in a great car that drives remarkably well both on straight roads and twisty ones as we’ve seen in our McLaren Artura review. This is a sports car that needs more credit and sales figures than it gets. However, there is the air of exclusivity that you get when driving a supercar that most people don’t have. We can’t stay that it is super-fast to charge taking you around 2.5 hours to get the batteries to 80%. On the upside, the batteries will get charged when the car is on the move.
