McLaren has been teasing their new hypercar, the McLaren Speedtail for a while and now it is official and it could end up being one of the fastest production cars.
According to McLaren the Speedtail is capable of a top speed of 250 miles per hour, this is around 403 kilometers per hour. The car comes with a massive 1,036 horsepower and it is powered by a petrol electric powertrain.
“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 personalisation. A ground-breaking hybrid powertrain sits within a lightweight carbon fibre 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.” Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive.
