In a groundbreaking event that set the tarmac on fire, McLaren Mumbai orchestrated India’s inaugural McLaren track day at the prestigious Buddh International Circuit in Noida, captivating automotive enthusiasts with a spectacle of speed and engineering excellence. The day was nothing short of a petrolhead’s dream, featuring the debut of the electrifying 750S and the groundbreaking Artura supercars, which took the tracks by storm under the guidance of McLaren-certified track maestros.
The new McLaren 750S, replacing the 720S, emerged as a titan of the tracks with its 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, delivering a staggering 750PS and 800Nm of torque. This beast accelerates from 0-62mph in a mere 2.8 seconds and reaches 124mph in just 7.2 seconds, thanks to its weight being trimmed by 30kg. Its 587PS-per-tonne power-to-weight ratio not only overshadows its closest rival by 22PS-per-tonne but also showcases its superior dynamic capabilities, enhanced by the latest iteration of McLaren’s Proactive Chassis Control, PCC III.
Meanwhile, the Artura made waves as a pioneering marvel in McLaren’s lineup, embodying the brand’s ethos of super-lightweight engineering. This all-new creation boasts an electrified powertrain capable of pure EV mode operation, setting new standards for throttle response and reduced emissions. Built on the innovative McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA), the Artura tips the scales with a class-leading lightest dry weight of 1,395kg and a DIN kerb weight of 1,498kg, paving the way for an exhilarating and environmentally conscious driving experience.
This track day not only marked McLaren Mumbai’s stamp on the world of high-performance driving in India but also offered an exclusive glimpse into the future of supercar technology, leaving attendees and onlookers in awe of the sheer power and innovation on display.
