The new McLaren Artura Spider made its public UK debut this week in front of an audience of media personalities and McLaren customers in London.

 

The event took place at the glamorous Outernet venue, which opened in 2022 and was named London’s most visited tourist attraction by The Times newspaper in 2023, and showcased the latest addition to the McLaren supercar family.

 

Guests arriving for the unveiling of McLaren’s newest open-top supercar were greeted by films of the Artura Spider shown on giant LED screens overlooking Tottenham Court Road.

 

Michael Leiters, CEO of McLaren Automotive, joined McLaren EMEA Regional Director, Brett Soso and other McLaren executives in hosting the 120 guests.

 

Among those seeing McLaren’s High-Performance Hybrid convertible for the first time were singer Sam Ryder, rapper Tinie Tempah, internet sensation Francis Bourgeois, former Love Island presenter Laura Whitmore and Soul II Soul founder Jazzie B.

 

The new Artura Spider is introduced with significant upgrades to power, performance and driver engagement, which combine with the sensory pleasures of open-top driving to add a remarkable new dimension to the Artura range.

 

Easily the lightest car among its convertible supercar competition at 1,457kg*, the Artura Spider enjoys a weight advantage of up to 83kg over rivals, which in combination with the 700PS output of its high-performance hybrid-powertrain delivers a power-to-weight ratio of 480PS/tonne. This in turn enables astonishing performance with a top speed of 330km/h and an acceleration of 0 – 100km/h in 3.0s.

 

“Unveiling the new Artura Spider in McLaren’s home market is an immensely proud moment for us. The new Artura is the complete next-generation supercar, with more power, more dynamic performance and even higher levels of connection with the driver – without any compromise in everyday driving. The introduction of the convertible Spider adds a thrilling new dimension to the driving experience of this extraordinary car.”
Brett Soso, Regional Director - Europe, Middle East & Africa

 

In parallel with the introduction of the new Artura Spider, a new Artura coupe that shares the same enhancements is now available, further enhancing its status as the next-generation supercar.
