McLaren has revealed its new supercar, the Artura. The car mixes a new carbon chassis with a turbo V-6 and electric assist, generating 671 hp and 0-60 in 2.9 sec.

 

 

Importantly for specs like these, which Tesla has made seem pedestrian, the Artura weighs only 3300 lb. And the company has sharpened up the oft-repeated McLaren design language. It is somewhat difficult to say that a $225,000 car is a good deal, but in the world of high-end sports cars, McLaren is clearly paying some attention to value for money.
