    McLaren Artura - 1st Impressions

    Just posted a blog on my 1st impressions on the McLaren Artura:

    https://karenable.com/the-new-mclaren-artura-1st-impressions/

    Has McLaren nailed it or missed?


    Re: McLaren Artura - 1st Impressions

    I like everything about this car except those little paddles on the sides of the instrument binnacle. I fear they’ll have a plastic tactile sensation and won’t align perfectly after they’ve been used some... Otherwise the interior has a “crisp” aesthetic that suits this car nicely. I would want to hear it, as a 120degree TTV6 is not my first choice for aural excitement. I suspect it’s just below 3L for EU and China regulations? I am curious about the gear ratios, especially since it doesn’t use the DCT for reverse. And I love the fact that it’s RWD. It’s got an aggressive appearing diffuser, but I’m surprised there’s not some more aero in the rear, did I miss something? 
    SSO, thanks as always for making good content!

    I personally think it looks better than a 720 ! 


    Re: McLaren Artura - 1st Impressions

    the front reminds me on the 675LT which is a very good thing. I like the overall design also more than on (my) 720.

    My pleasure.

    Agree on the gear ratios.  I hope they are not too short.

    I'd take a 577hp, petrol-only one weighing 130kg less without the electric bits smiley

    That would really be something..

    In five years, you'll salivate about the chance to buy a new car like the Artura. Smiley Smiley

    Reality (aka EU emissions/crash/pedestrian protection regulations) has caught up with McLaren.

    Sure, I get that. Was a joke really. For one thing it wouldn’t go backwards.

    Just the emissions really. 130kg was the weight quoted for the hybrid parts.

    No. In this case it’s called 600LT. Smiley

    To be honest, it‘s not that difficult to look better than a 720. Smiley

    Impressive? Yes. Futuristic? Yes. But good looking? Not something I would naturally associate with a 720.
