After a period of launch, British car brand McLaren recently announced the downsizing of the production line of McLaren Elva. According to the initial announcement, McLaren will produce 399 Elva cars, then reduced to 249 cars and recently the brand continued to announce that it will only produce a total of 149 cars. At the same time, the company also officially announced the Elva version with front windshield to meet the needs of some players as well as to legalize the car in some strict markets.

According to McLaren, this unique Speedster model will soon go into production and deliveries will begin before the end of this year. Originally, the McLaren Elva was known as the lightest street-legal car the brand had ever produced. Even the version with a windshield attached is not much heavier than the original. For the version with additional driving glass, the car is equipped with a new heated glass system with a carbon fiber frame, electronically synchronized windshield wipers and glass washer nozzles as well as sun visors on the inside of the car.

This version is only about 20 kg heavier than the original car, meaning the total weight is only about 1320 kg. At the same time, on this version, McLaren has removed the AAMS active air management system. This system is known for being equipped with a wind shield on the front cover of the car. When activated, this shield will erect, thereby dividing the air flow to other areas and not circulating directly into the cockpit area.

“There’s no roof and no windows, whether you choose the screenless model with sophisticated AAMS technology that provides an invisible air barrier or the version with glass,” said CEO Mike Flewitt. Wind-shielded with an added degree of wraparound, this is a roadster that gives its owner the ultimate sense of openness with an exhilarating driving experience that only a McLaren can deliver.”

Both versions have the same power as Senna. The version without a windshield takes about 2.8 seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h and 6.8 seconds to reach a maximum speed of 200 km/h. McLaren Elva in both versions is equipped with a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine, producing 804 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque and comes equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In addition, McLaren also announced that there will be no more than 149 Elva models personalized and produced according to the requests of special guests. This is the second time McLaren announced a reduction in the original production number of the McLaren Elva from the planned 399 units to 249 units last year, and now the brand has pegged the production number to just 149 units.

McLaren Elva is the successor to the values of the legacy left by Bruce Mclaren. The company’s latest supercar in the “Hyper” segment carries a speedster design, similar to the M1A (MkI), M1B (MkII) and M1C (MkIII) racing cars that Bruce Mclaren created in the ’60s. . Along with that, Elva possesses the leading technology of this supercar company at the present time as well as becoming a formidable competitor in the Speedster segment with “heavyweight competitors” such as the duo Ferrari Monza SP1 and Monza SP2, Aston Martin V12 Speedster,…

Like previous Mclaren cars in the “Hyper” segment, Mclaren P1, Mclaren Senna and Mclaren Speedtail, Mclaren Elva is still equipped with leading advanced technology, along with higher power than Mclaren cars. mass production. For example, the Mclaren Elva is the company’s first commercial supercar inspired by the “speedster” convertible design from the company’s legendary M1 in the ’60s. In addition, Mclaren also applies an active aerodynamic design called AAMS to control air through the cockpit to make this area quieter and less turbulent, but on the windshield version, this system has be cut down.
