The Artura is the first step in an entirely new direction for McLaren. A hybrid V6 powertrain. An all-new carbon tub. This is an entirely different McLaren to anything that's come before. Or is it? It's due to replace the 570 'Sport Series' McLarens, but is it *actually* a mini P1 for one-sixth of the price? Top Gear Magazine's Editor Jack Rix finds out...

  • 2:46 When you get most excited about CO2 emissions, I check out. This climate change religion has captured far too many of you. You get excited but you don't really know what for nor do you know when all of the efforts are working or not. Too hot in Texas, climate change. Cold snap in Texas, can't credit policy so it's ... um ... oh that's right ... climate change. Don't ever tell me the CO2 emissions on a car video again and expect me to continue watching.

  • Thank you Top Gear. I have done the rounds of others (Autotrader, Evo etc) and keep hearing the same repeated rubbish from McLaren themselves about this being an evolution for supercars, when they themselves already produced a hybrid in the P1. You are the only one I've seen so far to frame this car in the right context. All they seem to have done is make the concept more affordable. Which is of course great news and an incredible technical challenge, I'm sure. But why make out the car is some kind of game changer when it clearly isn't? I'm still trying to work out what about this car is special at all! Yes it looks good (subjectively). Yes it goes fast (but not eye wateringly faster than previous affordable McLarens). Yes it is light... no, it is heavier. It still has hydraulic steering, driving modes, not enough space for anything practical, a decent but not mind blowing interior, nothing special on the in-car entertainment tech. So can someone please tell me what about this particular car stands out from anything else we have seen before? For example, what can this do that a Koenigsegg can't? And don't come at with "Koenigsegg costs 10 x more blah blah blah...". If you call a car a "game changer" I want to know how it changes the game.

  • Looks like the 720s and the P1 had a baby It looks beautiful.

  • The first McLaren I've liked in more than a decade. I think I love it too ! My favourite McLaren is the F1. I also find it really practical compared to others in the list of McLarens. Yes I know. I just said the McLaren F1 is practical. But something about that car just hits the spot. The centre steering wheel, naturally aspirated BMW engine, non ABS brakes(I think, not sure, may be wrong about that), the whole shabang ! Coming back to this car, it's a good beginning for the second decade in production for one the most iconic car manufacturers. Also their performance in Formula 1 this year will set good stage for car sales. Best of luck McLaren. But truth be told. I'm a Ferrari fan. Forza Ferrari !
