The Woking manufacturer sought with the Speedtail to produce the ultimate road GT, in order to give a worthy heir to the 1994 McLaren F1. The Speedtail is the latest addition to the Ultimate Series, and thus takes up a three-seater position central driving, as well as a dizzying top speed. Only 106 copies will be built for a price of 2.5 million euros (all already sold).
A veritable moving work of art with its long frame (5.14 metres), the McLaren Speedtail seems to stretch with the wind, as if carved by it. No aerodynamic appendage disturbs this silhouette similar to that of a drop of water, elegant and refined. Airflow is uninterrupted from the nose to the extended stern. Very low (1.12 meters high), you can opt for rim covers, in order to reach the maximum speed at the wheel.
Inside, the SpeedTail offers perfect symmetry: the driver is positioned in the center of the car, with two passengers at his side, seated slightly behind. The work on the windows offers a feeling of space and freedom that pushes you to exploit the beast. However, the car does not have an all-electric mode. Personalization is pushed to the extreme, drawing inspiration from different worlds (yacht, haute couture, real estate, etc.).
Under the hood, the Speedtail features a hybrid engine: the mythical biturbo V8 of the McLaren Senna is modified and assisted by an electric group, for a cumulative power of 1070 horsepower and a torque of 1150 Nm. The 0 to 100 km/h is done in 3 seconds with its 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 0 to 300 km / h is shot in 12.8 seconds (about 4 seconds faster than the McLaren F1). As for the maximum speed, it is 403 km/h. Dizzying, we told you!
