McLaren claims the Artura can sprint from 0-100kph in 3.0 seconds and go on to a top speed of 330kph, thanks to its lightweight 2,993cc twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine, paired to a bespoke eight-speed transmission and a lithium-ion battery pack, which provides an instant torque and improved throttle response.
