McLaren isn’t relenting on the quest to continue conquering the hypercar space. It has continuously released spectacular and thrilling pieces for which consumers willingly pay a hefty premium.
The McLaren Elva Speedstar is of the same lineage and promises to take things to the next phase. It draws its nameplate from a series that McLaren built back in the 1960s.
This is a car whose energies are channeled to road usage but could as well do with some hard knocks form track laps. It is as capable and packed just as all top-tier McLarens come.
McLaren says that the Elva is the lightest road car to ever come out of their production line. It features a bespoke carbon fiber chassis, as well as carbon brakes, seats, and body panels.
Power comes to form a rather familiar engine, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 unit that was first tossed into McLaren 720S. It’s tweaked to produce 804 horsepower, raising 12 ponies above the ecstatic Senna track car.
The company plans to build just 399 examples of the Elva, with prices tagged at $1.69 million each for a start. Buyers get access to McLaren’s wide range of MSO-tailored options, raising the possibility of hiking the price depending on what a buyer picks.
The announcement of the Elva was not as much expected around this time of the year but makes an exciting news to close the year.
