Only 388 units of the McLaren Elva will ever be produced.
The new Ultimate Series McLaren is priced from US$1,690,000.
It’s the latest member of McLaren’s Ultimate series.
The model takes inspiration from the McLaren Elvas of the 1960s, which were designed by Bruce McLaren.
The Elva can go from 0-100kph in under 3-seconds.
The chassis and body were made from carbon fibre, a material that contributes to the fact that this is the lightest road car ever made by McLaren.
You also get a twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood, which puts out 804-horsepower.
