The McLaren Artura represents a big step forward for the supercar brand. A replacement for the 570S, the Artura is the first car on a new chassis designed specifically for a hybrid powertrain, and it marks the debut for the first engine McLaren has ever created in-house, a twin-turbo V-6 dubbed the M630. But while the Artura has to push forward into the future, embracing electrification and offering a significant step in performance over a 570S, it still has to be a McLaren, lightweight, feelsome, and approachable.
As chief engineer, Geoff Grosse is the man in charge of making sure the Artura achieves those aims. Before the launch of the new car, we spoke with Grosse to delve a little deeper into the engineering behind it. We didn’t cover everything, instead, focusing on the new powertrain and the suspension. But even that will give you plenty to munch on. For the full story, check out this article from Road & Track.
