McLaren Formula 1 Driver Daniel Ricciardo Drives the New McLaren Artura Ahead of Global Reveal
New McLaren Formula 1 driver Daniel Ricciardo has a hugely busy pre-season diary. Now he’s part of the McLaren family alongside team-mate Lando Norris, Daniel gets to drive McLarens with two seats as well as one – and jumped at the chance to try out the new McLaren Artura high-performance hybrid supercar.
Daniel is pictured enjoying the McLaren Artura ahead of his role in the global reveal that takes place this Tuesday, February 16 at 19:01 EST (16:01 PST). The reveal, at McLaren’s Woking, England, headquarters, will be streamed at http://cars.mclaren.com/en/artura/event .
McLaren Automotive will bring the full force of its expertise in hybrid powertrain engineering to the supercar class next year with the introduction of the new Artura, a High-Performance Hybrid (HPH) developed with the benefit of more than half a century of McLaren knowledge, experience and engineering achievements in race and road cars.
All-new in every respect, the Artura marks the beginning of a new era for the pioneering British company. Building on the expertise in electrification first showcased in the McLaren P1TM hybrid hypercar unveiled in 2012 and more recently the Speedtail Hyper-GT, which entered production this year as McLaren’s fastest ever car with a top speed of 250mph, the Artura is McLaren’s first High-Performance Hybrid series production supercar.
