Happy 60th Birthday McLaren!

Two McLaren Arturas took to the track in a choreographed display of precision driving to mark the 60th anniversary of Bruce McLaren founding the company in September 1963.

When the tyre smoke drifted away, the message became clear – as captured in the video ‘Celebrating 60 years of McLaren’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyshQlpIzr4

About the McLaren Artura:
The McLaren Artura features a powertrain comprising a twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine with an E-motor and energy-dense battery pack. These combine to produce combined outputs of 680PS (671bhp) and 720Nm (530lb ft). At its lightest dry weight of 1,395kg, the Artura boasts a class-leading power-to-weight ratio of 488PS per-tonne – a key attribute in achieving 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 3.0 seconds and 0-200km/h (0-124mph) in just 8.3 seconds.

About McLaren Automotive:
McLaren Automotive is a creator of luxury, high-performance supercars.

Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.

Launched in 2010, the company is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.

The company’s product portfolio of GT, supercar, Motorsport and Ultimate models are retailed through over 100 retailers in over 40 markets around the world.

McLaren is a pioneer that continuously pushes the boundaries. In 1981, it introduced lightweight and strong carbon fibre chassis into Formula 1 with the McLaren MP4/1.

Then in 1993 it designed and built the McLaren F1 road car – the company has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis since. As part of the Ultimate Series, McLaren was the first to deliver a hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1™. In 2016, it announced a new hybrid hyper-GT and confirmed in 2018 that the next Ultimate car would be the Speedtail.

2019 saw McLaren launch the 600LT Spider, the new GT and the track-only McLaren Senna GTR. It also unveiled the 620R and McLaren Elva before launching the 765LT the following year.

In 2021, the company unveiled its all-new high-performance hybrid supercar, the McLaren Artura.

The Artura is the first McLaren to benefit from the McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA). The MCLA is designed, developed and manufactured at the McLaren Composites Technology Centre in the Sheffield region of England using world-first processes and will spearhead the brand’s electrified future.

Most recently, it unveiled the lightest and most powerful series-production McLaren, the 750S.

McLaren Automotive also chooses to partner with like-minded, world-leading companies and organisations who push the boundaries in their respective fields. These include Ashurst, Bowers & Wilkins, Gulf, Pirelli, Plan International, Richard Mille and Tumi.
