This is the McLaren Elva and everything you could want to know about it! Join me for an in depth discovery, as well as my first drive in the open-top Ultimate Series hypercar from my friends at @thespace.dxb! The Elva is unique and exclusive, with a lot to take in!
Following in the footsteps of the McLaren P1, Senna and Speedtail, the Elva is the latest member of the Ultimate Series family of hypercars with only 149 units to be made. Powered by the familiar 4.0l TT V8, in this case it makes 815hp and 800Nm, in the lightest car that McLaren have ever made at only 1,169kg./ Shmee150
While an optional version of the Elva is available with a windscreen fitted (which is probably how I would order it), the windshield free variant is the rawest driving experience.
Up front is found the AAMS (Active Air Management System) with a raising Gurney flap to create an Oasis of Calm around the occupants and significantly reduce the wind buffeting for those inside the car considering the complete lack of a screen ahead. However, it’s distinctly McLaren with engaging hydraulic steering, trick suspension, and the latest clever features and functionality.I cannot say thank you enough to my friends at The Space for this incredible opportunity to take a first drive in the McLaren Elva!/Shmee150
