LIKE NO OTHER: DRIVING THE SPEEDTAIL FOR THE FIRST TIME

The Speedtail is McLaren’s fastest road car ever. But what does it feel like to drive?


Just 12.8 seconds. That’s all it takes for the Speedtail to reach 300km/h from a standing start. This is the fastest acceleration delivered by any McLaren to date.

But the Speedtail is a car that pushes even further. Keep on accelerating, and the car will reach its staggering top speed of 403km/h (250mph) – higher than any car we’ve ever created. Outstripping even the McLaren F1. It’s the combined result of a stunning aerodynamic design, a dry weight of only 1,430kg and the immense force of the 1,050PS petrol-electric powertrain.

“It’s like nothing that you’re used to” says Jonathan Beaumont, Vehicle Line Manager for the Ultimate Series. “It really feels like the cockpit of a fighter jet. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.”
