McLaren released its newest roadster

Recently, McLaren introduced a new variant of the Ultimate series named the McLaren Elva. The car's name and design were inspired by Mclaren-Elva M1A of the 1960s. Unique is the right word to describe Elva. It is not only without a roof, but also windows, including the windshield.

Even so, passengers and drivers remain protected from wind exposure, thanks to a design that carries the Active Air Management System feature. This feature is able to collect high-pressure air in front of the car, then drain it back past the top of the cabin. The airflow is also regulated as speed increases, by using a deflector at the back which can rise as high as 5.9 inches.

If it isn't needed, the device is kept neat and level with the hood. The system works automatically, but the driver can turn it off to feel the wind when driving 321 kph. Other sophisticated devices are also embedded, such as large spoilers that can be adjusted height and angle, in order to optimize the aerodynamic balance. As well as being an additional feature to heave the pace at high speeds.

Its engine was the latest version of the Mclaren twin-turbo V8 4.0 liter. The configuration can produce peak power up to 815 PS and the highest torque moment of 800 Nm. All thrust is channeled to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gear shifting system.

Not yet known what the power-to-weight ratio of this car, but certainly Elva has a lighter weight than the Senna. It even became the lightest Mclaren' street-legal model.

Elva may look like a car that is more concerned with performance than functionality. However, in fact not so. Inside the cabin, there is an infotainment system in the form of an 8-inch touch screen. In addition, there is a compartment room in the back that can be used to store two helmets.
Mclaren's plan is to produce Elva in limited numbers, only 399 units. Prices offered start at $1.69 million or Rp.23,812 billion. The value can increase if consumers want to customize, such as adding a windshield. The McLaren Elva roadster will begin shipping to consumers by the end of 2020. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MCLAREN | DAILYMAIL | AUTOCAR | THE ECONOMIC TIMES]
