The British company has revealed the speed tail, a new car from their ultimate series of supercars after the p1.
And If you think the p1 was fast, boy you need to think again because the Speedtail is the company’s fastest supercar to date. The figures are astounding! It can achieve a top speed of 402 kmph and can do 0-300 in just 12.8 seconds. This is made possible by the highly innovative hybrid powertrain churning out 1035 bhp of power and a new chassis that the company calls velocity active chassis. Every panel in the car is made of carbon fiber and it weighs an impressively low 1430 kgs
Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive said “McLaren has never built a vehicle like the Speedtail before. As our first ‘Hyper-GT’, the Speedtail is the ultimate McLaren road car; a fusion of art and science that combines an astonishing maximum speed with an iconic central-driving position and a truly pioneering approach to bespoke personalization. A ground-breaking hybrid powertrain sits within a lightweight carbon fiber body reminiscent of sleek ‘streamliners’ that once set world speed records, while the luxurious three-seat cockpit offers a sublime combination of an incredible driving experience, unmatched individualism and innovative materials never seen before in a road-going vehicle.”
The only bad news associated with the car is that only 106 units will be made and all are already booked.
This isn’t so bad after all because most of us weren’t even gonna buy it anyways or you can say couldn’t afford one. But always keep your hopes high!
