Product Overview

McLaren Elva is a limited-production speedster in production from 2020. It is powered by the highest-tuned variant of McLaren's bi-turbo V8 engine that displaced liters. McLaren envisages it to be the spiritual successor to the F1 and P1, among others.
Undoubtedly, the speedster form factor makes the car a more focused driving machine, with zero regard for practicality.

Sentiment Score 91%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
The Elva is not just the most powerful non-hybrid McLaren but also the lightest of all since the F1. However mad it looks, it’s madder even than that. When the roads clear and you let loose, the sensation of speed as the Elva accelerates might be the greatest I’ve experienced in a road car.

Pros
  • The most powerful non-hybrid McLaren since the F1

Cons
