McLaren Artura roars into Dubai

McLaren Dubai, the official Retail Partner of McLaren Automotive, has announced the delivery of the first Artura, its next-generation supercar, in the UAE.

Marking its debut on the roads of the Middle East, this hybrid supercar is built on an all-new design and architecture that delivers incredible performance.

Celebrating the occasion, Mazen Al Nashar, General Manager at McLaren Dubai, said: “We are thrilled to deliver the Artura for the first time in the Middle East. We are now all set to fulfill the demand of our customers who have been patiently waiting for this exceptional vehicle. The response has been overwhelming, and we look forward to watching our customers experience the electrifying power and innovative features of this brand-new hybrid supercar.”

The supercar inherits every attribute of a McLaren. With a trademark McLaren cockpit and advanced driver focus, the Artura offers unparalleled driving dynamics, lower emissions, faster throttle response, and the ability to run in pure EV mode.

Artura is a plug-in hybrid and an ultra-light supercar that transitions between petrol and electric power in a seamless and programmed way to make the absolute best of both. When the power of petrol and electricity are combined, Artura produces a stunning 680PS – with the E-Motor adding up to 95PS and 225 Nm of torque, on demand.

“It is a great time for us to begin deliveries in the UAE as the market continues to see an accelerated demand for supercars and hybrid vehicles. The governments in the region have been instrumental in promoting EVs and investing in the infrastructure, enabling customers to opt for a balance between efficiency and performance – a blend that the Artura offers,” added Al Nashar.

The car is built with an advanced new McLaren Carbon Fibre Lightweight Architecture (MCLA) at its core and has a V6 twin-turbocharged hybrid petrol engine along with an eight-speed transmission and a compact e-motor. Weighing in at 50kg less than a V8, it produces the highest PS/litre per KG of any V6 on the market. The Artura’s top speed is electronically limited to 330km/h with 0-100km/h achieved in just 3.0 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 8.3 seconds.

The first owner to take delivery in the region is UAE-based entrepreneur and car enthusiast Aliev Kiril, who received a stunning Volcano Yellow Artura.
