McLaren has confirmed warranty and customer care details for its all-new Artura supercar that will ensure the ownership proposition for the car is equally as compelling as the enthralling high-performance driving experience it will offer.
Revealed last month as the first series-production High-Performance Hybrid from the pioneering luxury supercar company, the Artura is the product of more than half a century of McLaren’s racing and road-car experience and expertise. In addition to setting new benchmarks in the supercar class for performance and efficiency, the Artura also brings new levels of McLaren warranty protection and inclusive roadside assistance.
“The all-new McLaren Artura was designed and engineered to perform at the highest level across the board, in electric power-only, zero-emission, urban commutes to weekend breaks, favorite-road drives and track day sessions. As well as setting new standards in the supercar class for performance and efficiency, it has a world-class warranty to match, giving our customers peace-of-mind while they are enjoying their new high-performance hybrid supercar to the full,” said Jamie Corstorphine, Product Strategy Director, McLaren Automotive.
Every new Artura will be covered from point of purchase by a 5-year/50,000 mile vehicle warranty, 6-year/50,000 mile hybrid battery warranty and 10-year, unlimited mileage, body (anti-perforation) warranty and a 5-year road side assistance package. The warranty and assistance provisions are all transferrable, enhancing the Artura’s future status as a McLaren Certified Pre-Owned car.
At the heart of the Artura’s powertrain is McLaren’s all-new, 2,993cc twin-turbocharged V6 petrol engine. With a power output of 585PS – nearly 200 PS per litre – and 585Nm of torque, the dry-sump aluminium engine is compact and lightweight; at just 160kg it weighs 50kg less than a McLaren V8 and is significantly shorter, enhancing packaging efficiency.
The E-motor is powered by a battery pack comprising five lithium-ion modules, offering a usable energy capacity of 7.4kWh and a pure EV range of 30km (18.6 miles). The battery is refrigerant cooled using cooling rails, and the assembly – including a power distribution unit which transfers battery power from the rear of the vehicle to the ancillaries in the front – is mounted on a structural carbon fibre floor. This assembly is then bolted onto the rear base of the monocoque, optimising stiffness, weight distribution and crash protection.
The Artura is designed with full Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) capability and can be charged to an 80% charge level in just 2.5 hours with a standard EVSE cable. The batteries can also harvest power from the combustion engine during driving, tailored to the driving mode selected.
The new Artura, which is priced from $225,000 in the US, is available in a standard specification and three further trim levels: Performance, which has a sporting, functional aesthetic; TechLux, where the focus is on the technical luxury the name suggests; and Vision, which displays a more and adventurous look and feel. All specifications enjoy a high level of features as no cost or standard, including a Practicality Pack which adds Vehicle Lift; power-folding heated door mirrors with ‘dip in reverse’ functionality; four front and four rear parking sensors; rear-view camera; Homelink and soft-close doors. Additionally, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are supported as standard by mobile phone integration into both the instrument cluster and central display screen.
