McLaren are celebrating their 60th anniversary with two very tail-happy Artura supercars. The company was founded in September 1963 by Bruce McLaren, a race car driver and engineer from New Zealand. Today, McLaren Automotive hand-builds roadgoing supercars. McLaren Racing competes in Formula 1 and IndyCar. McLaren have won eight Formula 1 Constructors’ Championships and 12 Drivers’ Championships.
The McLaren Artura’s seen in this video are hybrid supercars powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine and an electric motor. Combined, the engines produce 671 hp and 530 lb-ft of torque. The Artura can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 3 seconds and from 0-200 km/h 8.3 seconds.
The 1993 McLaren F1 road car is regarded as one of the best supercars of all-time. Bruce McLaren died in a Can-Am race car crash during testing in England in June 1970. He was just 32 years old.
