McLaren has revealed its newest addition to its Ultimate Series lineup, the Elva, a 804bhp two-seat roadster with no windscreen. Named after the open race cars built by founder Bruce McLaren, the Elva is the lightest road car that McLaren Automotive have ever made. ‘McLaren continues to push the boundaries of supercar and hypercar development in pursuit of outstanding and unparalleled driving experiences for our customers and the McLaren Elva epitomises that pioneering spirit,’ says Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive ‘It’s fitting that the new McLaren Ultimate Series roadster – a uniquely modern car that delivers the ultimate connection between driver, car and the elements and with that new heights of driving pleasure on road or track – acknowledges our rich heritage with the Elva name.’ Under the voluptuous body is a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 with 804-horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, capable to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in less than 3 seconds and can reach 124 mph in a mere 6.7 seconds.
