McLaren Reveals The Secret Behind Its Electric Speedtail HyperGT

The McLaren Speedtail is the fastest McLaren ever made with a top speed of 250 mph (403 km/h) which it can do over and over again.

The Speedtail is a recent addition to McLaren’s Ultimate Series and just 106 examples are destined to be built, the number equalling the build run for the McLaren F1 whose three-seat layout the Speedtail shares.

Powering the Speedtail is a 4.0-liter internal combustion engine, working alongside an electric drive unit for a combined 1,070 PS (1,055 HP) and 1,150 Nm (848 lb-ft) of torque, of which 757 PS (746 HP) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) are provided by the V8 engine.

At the core of the Speedtail is a carbon fiber monocoque structure, with carbon fiber also used for the body. The suspension is mostly aluminum and additional weight has been saved by utilizing carbon-ceramic brake rotors instead of steel units. There’s still some heft here, with McLaren quoting a weight of 3,153 pounds, due mostly to the hybrid powertrain.

The Speedtail’s price tag is $2.25 million, but build slots for the car were all snapped up even before the reveal.
