A new video of the McMurtry Spéirling has surfaced online. The British hypercar was seen launching at the Dubai Autodrome. The best word to describe the car moving off the line is blasting off, because that is literally what the Spéirling did. With this, the car left the crowd speechless. The car clocked a 0-60 mph time of 1.4 seconds and a 1/4th mile time of 7.97 seconds.
What’s the McMurty Spéirling?
While this is from a relatively unknown brand, the car is in the news for breaking the Goodwood Hill Climb record. The all-electric 1,000 HP hypercar broke this record on its debut. This itself is a commendable feat. As of now, this is a track only car, but the British carmaker has said that a road legal version is coming out soon.
Driven by Max Chilton, the car finished the hill climb in just 39.08 seconds. The previous record holder was the Volkswagen ID.R race car which had clocked a time of 39.90 seconds.
The Spéirling has been designed with LMP1 standards and hence the carbon fibre monocoque gets crash protection. The car is more of a racecar than a road machine. It features a very low seating position with a vertical leg posture. While the rider’s back is reclined, the legs are in a upright position almost at the chin level.
Dual fan system of the McMurty Spéirling
The key reason for the car to have amazing track skills is its dual fan system to increase the downforce on demand. This hypercar will corner like no other car on the track. The fans can spin at upto 23,000 rpm and at any speed of the vehicle. They can offer upto 4,000 lbs of downforce. The fans suck in air and generate his amazing downforce that makes the Spéirling a cornering beast.
Powertrain of the McMurty Spéirling
The British car comes with dual electric motors in the rear. The motors draw power from the 60 kWh battery pack. All this powers the rear wheels. The company claims an 80 percent in just 15 mins from a 200 kW fast charger. The company claims a range of 300 miles. Further, while a full blast, the car is good for one lap, dialling down the power to GT4 pace, the car can do 20 minutes of track time before needing a break to cool down things.
