A few days ago McLaren unveiled its new model, the Artura GT4. It is the racing successor to the 570S GT4 with impressive performance and significantly less weight than the rest of the McLaren range. It will have its premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which will take place from June 23-26.
When designing the Arthur GT4, McLaren focused primarily on the weight of the car. It is lighter than its predecessor, which was contributed by the transition from V8 to non-hybrid V6 engine. Also, instead of a battery, the Artura GT4 is equipped with a 110-liter fuel cell, as well as an auxiliary propulsion system. McLaren claims that the weight is still low and in the center due to better balance. The eight-speed automatic transmission has been replaced by a new 7-speed transmission with a shorter gear range.
The more aggressive aerodynamic body kit provides greater downforce compared to its predecessor, the 570S GT4. This includes a new front splitter and a new rear wing with seven levels to adjust so the car can adapt to different types of tracks. The driver’s seat and adjustable pedals are taken from the 720S GT3, and McLaren claims it’s as safe as this model.
When it comes to price, the new McLaren Artura GT4 costs £ 200,000.
