McLaren Elva

Joining the P1, Senna, and Speedtail is the latest addition to McLaren's Ultimate Series line, the Elva. Inspired by the McLaren-Elva race cars of the 1960s, the new model is the brand's first open-cockpit two-seater, a true roadster that has no roof, windscreen, or side windows. The Elva will be the company's lightest road car with a custom carbon fiber chassis and body, carbon fiber seats, and sintered carbon fiber brakes. 

Power will come from a twin-turbo 4.0L McLaren V8 that produces 804 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. This will launch the hypercar from 0-60 in less than three seconds and an official top speed has yet to be revealed. One of the most groundbreaking features of the new Elva is an Active Air Management System, which redirects airflow over the cockpit to keep things comfortable. It can also be fitted with an optional fixed windscreen if necessary.

The McLaren Elva is limited to 399 examples and customer deliveries are set for later next year.
