You guessed it - it's the fastest McLaren ever.
The Speedtail weighs 1430kg dry; not bad when you consider all the insane strengthening that has had to happen to its chassis.
Coupled with the 1,035 horsepower provided by a hybrid powertrain, the Speedtail will rocket from 0 to 186 miles per hour in only 12.8 seconds, and continue to pull all the way to 250 miles per hour, or almost as fast as the Bugatti Chiron. The McLaren and Speedtail badges on the auto are made from 18-carat white gold. Velocity mode optimizes the hybrid powertrain for high-speed running while also tailoring the angle of the active rear ailerons.
Noticeably absent are rearview mirrors and sun visors.
The 20-inch alloy wheels at the front of the vehicle have been smothered by carbonfibre covers that remain fixed in place as the hidden wheels behind them spin, again helping boost aerodynamic efficiency. It's accessed by powered (a first for McLaren) double-skinned dihedral doors that feature a single piece of "wrapover" glazing which forms part of the roof when closed. That's the same number of cars as McLaren produced for the McLaren F1. Two passenger seats are integrated into the carbon fibre monocoque. For auto lovers, that money is entirely well spent however, and will certainly feel it thanks to a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain capable of achieving over 243mph. The vehicle has "interwoven carbon titanium deposition materials and digitally embossed, full-aniline and lightweight leathers". Flexible carbon fibre has allowed McLaren to achieve this. Expanding on that, Andy Palmer, the Ultimate Series top banana, told PH that McLaren had used hybrid technology "in a very different way" this time around.Читайте также: Suspicious Package Found Near Robert De Niro's NYC Restaurant
Behind the wheel, the most noticeable design feature is the central driving position. The suspension is mostly aluminum and further weight has been saved by utilizing carbon-ceramic brake rotors instead of steel units. McLaren is only making 106 of them, and they're all already spoken for. Even spoilt members of the automotive press weren't allowed to climb into the captain's chair, but it looks fantastic and the job of scrambling into it has apparently been made easier by a new "directional" leather finish that lets you glide across the passenger seats.
Being a McLaren, there's space for luggage fore and aft, though unusual to think of a 250-mph vehicle hauling suitcases.
About one-third of the Speedtails are headed for North America, the spokesman said. The Speedtail has no such problems with McLaren confirming that all production slots are spoken for at a minimum cost of £1.75 million plus taxes.
The 106 F1s that originally sold for a then-whopping $800,000 are worth $15 million or more today.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
