McLaren pushes into the future with the release of their new car. The Elva. This new car echoes Bruce McLaren’s original race conquering open top sports cars of the 1960s – the M1A, M1B and M1C. Elvas’ were lightweight, open-roofed, mid-engine masterpieces. The true sports car feeling has now been reincarnated as part of McLaren‘s Ultimate lineup. Pricing to be around $1.69 million for this beauty.
From a design standpoint, fluid lines and bold shapes flow together to create a truly remarkable car. McLaren has created an Active Air Management System (AAMS) that directs turbulent air above cabin for a more enjoyable drive. Which means you get the rush of driving an open top car without the sex hair.
This agile machine is powered by a 4.0L Twin-turbocharged V8 with 815PS with 800NM of torque. This is mated to a bespoke quad exhaust system that will deliver a brilliant sound into the cabin and make passers by quiver. That should be plenty of power to get your blood pumping full of petrol.
The Elvas carbon fibre body consists of only 3 panels which create a clean sculpted profile. Carbon fibre as you know allows for maximum protection while reducing the overall weight of a vehicle. This makes the Elva the lightest McLaren road car ever made. As always, McLaren truly delivers precision engineered masterpiece that we could look at for hours.
