2021 McLaren new cars: The incoming supercars to look out for

McLaren cars are a niche proposition at the best of times and yet, despite a financially difficult year for many, the marque managed to somewhat maintain its sales foothold in 2020, only losing around 25 per cent of ground. As of November 2020, McLaren had managed to shift 59 cars compared to the 79 it sold in the same period the year prior.

2021 McLaren Artura: Name confirmed for hybrid supercar

McLaren's upcoming hybrid supercar has been given a name: Artura. Due to launch in the first half of 2021, the Artura is the (indirect) replacement for the British brand's popular Sports Series line of supercars – consisting of 540C, 570S, 570GT, 600LT and 620R variants – and, unlike its predecessors, shifts away from a numerical nameplate derived from the car's power output, towards a word-based moniker.

2021 McLaren hybrid supercar confirmed

McLaren has confirmed its next-generation supercar will be launched in the first half of 2021. The vehicle – which does not yet have an official model name – will be the first built on the brand’s MCLA carbon fibre lightweight architecture. A V6 hybrid powertrain differentiates the car from all of its McLaren on-road predecessors, which have used twin-turbo V8 motors in recent times. Performance figures for the hybrid V6 are yet to be announced.
