With the Artura, McLaren has presented its first sports car with a performance- optimized hybrid drive. At its heart is a new 3.0-l V6 gasoline engine (bore × stroke: 84 × 90 mm) in a 120° layout with two centrally positioned mono-scroll turbochargers that produces a maximum of 430 kW at 7500 rpm (maximum speed: 8500 rpm) and 585 Nm of torque from 2250 to 7000 rpm. Combined with the axial- flow electric motor placed in the transmission bell housing, which contributes up to 70 kW and 225 Nm, and the 7.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, the overall system brings the total to 500 kW and 720 Nm of torque. The two drive systems are integrated via an engine disconnect clutch and drive a new dual-clutch transmission developed specifically for the Artura. Despite eight gear steps instead of the previous seven, the short-ratio transmission is 40 mm shorter than its predecessor and does not require a reverse gear, as the electric motor takes over this function.
