lifestyle /motors The New Ultimate Series Hyper-GT: McLaren Speedtail A pure fusion of science and art in automotive form, the Speedtail is McLaren’s first ever Hyper-GT.
by Royist Lifestyle

McLaren’s most aerodynamically efficient car ever, the Speedtail is the fastest McLaren to date with a pioneering 1070PS hybrid powertrain at its core. It brings together unprecedented levels of innovation and elegance to create a new benchmark in automotive design. And offers owners extraordinary opportunity for bespoke personalisation.

McLaren’s design mantra, everything for a reason, holds true through every last detail of the Speedtail. The design is one of pure, streamlined elegance. Born out of the single-minded vision to create the most aerodynamically efficient car ever, there is an uninterrupted flow of air from nose to tail. The dramatically elongated tail is as distinct in the automotive world as the Speedtail’s incredible velocity. With a host of innovations, the design minimises all unnecessary shutlines. This creates an outline so sleek it seems hewn from a single form. This is minimalist elegance at its apex. All honed around extraordinary, ground-breaking, performance.

Just 12.8 seconds. That’s all it takes for the Speedtail to reach 300km/h from a standing start. This is the fastest acceleration delivered by any McLaren to date. But the Speedtail is a car that pushes ever further. Keep on accelerating, and the car will reach its staggering top speed of 403km/h (250mph) – higher than any car we’ve ever created. Outstripping even the McLaren F1. It’s the combined result of a stunning aerodynamic design. A dry weight of only 1,430kg. And the immense force of the 1,050PS petrol-electric powertrain. Discover the incredible specification of the McLaren Speedtail.

Perfect symmetry. Unprecedented space. Unparalleled digital craftsmanship. The cockpit of the Speedtail is an extraordinary place to be. Innovation touches every element. From the materials design, to the very layout of the interior environment. The heart of the Speedtail’s interior is the driving seat. Quite literally. Its central position recalls our very first road car, the iconic McLaren F1. It offers an unparalleled view of the road. And helps to create a unique sense of space and balance behind the wheel. A feeling that is amplified by a stunning use of glass. And the seamless, clean dashboard design. Welcome to the modern driving experience, reimagined in a truly incredible way.

The Speedtail breaks new boundaries. Not simply through its performance. But also in the level of customisation it offers across colour, materials and textures. The vision was to realise the ultimate achievement in bespoke design. To create 106 totally unique cars. And it’s precisely this limited production number that has enabled us to push into unchartered territory. What we’ve created is an astonishing collection of exclusive, innovative materials. Many are inspired by the non-automotive worlds of high fashion, luxury yachts and bespoke furniture. And many, too, have truly never been seen on a car before. Together, they offer Speedtail owners scope for personalisation that’s nothing short of unprecedented.
