McLaren claims the Elva is the lightest road car it’s ever made, with a bespoke carbon fiber chassis, along with carbon brakes, seats, and body panels. The engine is McLaren’s familiar 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 unit, which first appeared in the 720S. It’s tuned to 804 horsepower—15 more than the company’s wildly quick Senna track car—and has 590 lb-ft of torque. McLaren says the 0-62 mph sprint is dispatched in under three seconds, though it doesn’t specify an exact figure. It also says 0-124 mph happens in 6.7 seconds, which is a hair quicker than the Senna’s 6.8-second run. All of that being said, McLaren says it will still offer a derivative of the Elva with a windshield, should the customer desire it. McLaren will build just 399 examples of the Elva, each priced at $1.69 million to start. Buyers will have access to McLaren’s extensive range of MSO-tailored options, so it’s likely prices out the door will be considerably more expensive.
