I can only pass along what I was told at the factory. Expect an announcement in Q3/Q4. They seemed much less concerned about the 720 replacement because there are still very few cars that can compete with it. I’m not saying they aren’t working on it...but it didn’t seem their top priority from my conversations. Time will tell I guess...Pebble should have a ‘fun’ unveil of something for the track and ultra ultra limited.Is it confirmed that the P1 replacement will be unveiled this year or just speculation? I would have thought the 720 replacement is next.
I think the point still stands and holds up very well. It doesn’t mean they won’t increase power. I think the point is...anyone can make power...but few companies are genuinely interested in keeping weight down because it’s expensive. They take the easier route of letting them get porkier but adding power and electronics to make them more manageable. In the current environment I can’t think of a manufacturer doing a better job with weight saving than McLaren. Unless you get into GMA or boutique stuff...hmm, 458 570bhp, 650 well 650
458 speciale, 610 bhp, 675LT well 675
488 660 bhp, 720 well 720
488 pista 720 bhp, 765LT...
sure mclaren has never been in the BHP war...AND some of the Ferrari numbers might have been optimistic while the mclaren ones were conservative..
Weight matter more everywhere not only on the track, acceleration, cornering, braking
July/August is what I was told.@aorta When you visited MTC did they give you any indication when press drives or customer drives of the Artura will be?
The Artura is a great car. The fit and finish is nice. The ergonomics are nice. The power delivery is linear. It’s very quick. Sounds good...not v10 good though! The sound system is also very good. The doors shut solidly. Overall I was very impressed. It also has over 100tq more and nearly 60-70hp more than an EVO...in the real world it likely weighs a lot less as well. Straight line it’ll probably dust off the Huracan...maybe not on the track...not sure yet...The tq down low is where you’ll notice it the most. Less visceral than the EVO I’m sure...but also more comfortable.I read quite a few pages in this thread and I find it quite funny that people see the Artura as being high sought after. Porsche GT's, Ferrari and Lamborghini have their order books slammed for years to come. The Artura should have a massive backlog of Sport Series customers with deposits for their first 2 years of production, rather the two local dealer I called said I can get an early allocation... never bought a McLaren before I'm sure McLaren will move Artura's but It think McLaren lost a lot of ground to the competition since 2020. For this reason I have a 2022 EVO RWD Spyder in my garage but I do lust after a 765LT Spyder. I'd also like to experience the Artura to see how engaging the hybrid system is as all automakers are going in this direction.
“Conditioning Engine.’ You can’t just ‘start it’ and go using the gas engine. It ‘starts’ in EV mode and you have to wait until the conditioning engine light goes off then the gasoline engine starts and can be used. To be fair it takes less than 30 seconds most of the time. Apparently a new OTA update for US markets...Just an FYI...I give up….what’s the issue here?
