McLaren Elva revealed as 804bhp Ultimate Series roadster

New machine joins P1, SENNA and Speedtail in the range topping model line

range-topping model line and is limited to 399 examples, priced from £1,425,000, Mclaren claims the rear-wheel-drive Elva is the lightest road car it has ever produced. Powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, it is able to reach 62mph in under 3 seconds, and has a claimed 0-124mph time of 6.7sec, faster than the track-focused Senna.

The Elva name comes from the East Sussex constructor whose chassis was used as the basis for McLaren’s two-seat sports cars in the 1960s, the M1A, M1B and M1C, which serve as spiritual predecessors to the new road car.
