Watch the McMurtry Automotive Speirling's 7.97 Second Quarter-Mile Sprint
0-100mph in 2.63 seconds.
Carwow has just reviewed McMurtry Automotive’s Speirling hypercar and the results are impressive. Irish for “thunderstorm,” the electric-powered Speirling speedster caught the attention of the automotive world in June when it broke the Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb record — even beating out an F1 race car.
The Speirling features two electric motors that produce 1,000hp, and is matched to an incredibly light carbon-fiber monocoque chassis that weighs just under 1000kg. This gives the Sperling a power-to-weight ratio of roughly 1:1, and when combined with its fan system that allows for 2,000kg of downforce, the Speirling is an absolute beast on the track.
Breaking the Carwow road car record, the Speirling was able to clock in 0-60mph in 1.4 seconds, 0-100mph in 2.63 seconds, and had a quarter-mile time of 7.97 seconds. Check out the video above to see it in action, and expect news on production models in the coming future, where each Speirling will be priced at roughly £2 million GBP (approximately $2.4 million USD).
