This week, McLaren revealed the all-new Artura, which replaces the 570S and derivatives. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain, it is the first modern McLaren not powered by a version of the twin-turbo V8. Instead, it boasts an all-new V6 engine with a wide V-angle to allow the two turbochargers to sit between the cylinder heads. Combined with the electric motor, the hybrid drivetrain is good for a peak power of 670 bhp. Despite all the additional equipment, the Artura has a kerb weight of less than 1,500 kg thanks to a sophisticated carbon-fibre composite monocoque. The first examples of the all-new McLaren should be with the customers early in the summer.
Morgan meanwhile revived the Plus 8 for a new limited production model. Dubbed the Plus 8 GTR, it is inspired by the 1990s Plus 8 GTR GT2 racer. Raced by Charles Morgan himself, this was the first Morgan built around the bonded and riveted monocoque chassis that was later used by the Aero models. Painted bright blue, the one-off Plus 8 GTR was better known to Morgan enthusiasts as 'Big Blue.' The new Plus 8 GTR is built on recommissioned, unused chassis of the Plus 8 road car of which production had officially stopped in 2018. Limited to just nine examples, it is the first in a line of a series of Morgan special projects.
