British marque McLaren continues to push the boundaries with its latest offering, the Artura. Previously seen in a pre-production test, the Artura stands as McLaren’s first-ever High-Performance Hybrid (HPH) supercar and combines its all-new twin-turbocharged three-liter V6 engine with an E-motor and energy-dense battery pack, which come together for an output that will definitely give Ferrari’s SF90 a run for its money.

Total power comes to 671 BHP and 531lb-ft of torque, which is enough to push the Artura from 0-60 MPH in three seconds, to 124 MPH in 8.3 seconds, and to 186 MPH in 21.5 seconds, while it will max out at 205 MPH. Of course, these figures will only be achieved if you’re not trying to preserve the battery, as with most electrified supercars the batteries act as an eco-friendly way to provide more power. As such, you get a mere 19-mile range from the electric motor, but a combined MPG of 50 miles on average.

As for styling, it’s quintessentially McLaren and is said to be almost “shrink-wrapped” in approach. Its combination of low-nose, cab-forward, high-tail, coupled with its short wheelbase, gives the Artura a hefty amount of presence and stance, with its aerodynamic cut-outs, spoilers and lips cutting through aggressively. Inside, McLaren has focused even more on the driver — gone are the days of steering wheels fitted with every button imaginable, as they can now be found on the distraction-free instrument binnacle.

McLaren’s Artura is priced from $225,000 USD, and more information about the next-gen supercar can be found on the dedicated McLaren website. Take a closer look at the car above, and expect to see one on a road near you very soon.
