  • Wild and unconventional, the Elva is the fifth car in McLaren’s Ultimate Series
  • The low, pointed, shark-like nose, curvaceous lines, muscular rear haunches and low rear deck are reminiscent of the sixties McLaren M1B and M1C
  • With no windscreen or roof, occupants are protected by an innovative Active Air Management System
  • Powered by an amazing twin-turbocharged, 815bhp, 4.0-litre V-8, the Elva is the most powerful non-hybrid McLaren ever
  • Performance is beyond extraordinary; 0-100km/h (62mph) takes under three seconds, while the 0-200km/h time (0-124mph) is even quicker than the Senna at just 6.7 seconds
  • This stunning example dates from 2021 and has covered a total of 8km.
  • Finished in Silver, Silver Grey and Carbon with the number 4 in white roundels
  • A wonderful blend of 'Sixties Racer' styling, state-of-the-art engineering and simple eccentricity

The original McLaren M1A was a superlight sports racing car of the 1960s, but when demand for customer cars grew too much for Bruce McLaren’s seven-strong team, he entered into partnership with Elva Cars Ltd. The McLaren-Elva M1B and M1C came from this tie-in, and it’s clear to see the inspiration they provide for the 2020 Elva, from the low, pointed, shark-like nose to its curvaceous lines, muscular rear haunches and low rear deck. Chief talking point is the absence of any windscreen or side windows; instead, McLaren’s engineering and design teams have devised an innovative Active Air Management System (AAMS) that shelters occupants by manipulating air flow to leave them in a bubble of calm air as speed increases. The Elva is the lightest road car in the McLaren line-up, thanks to its simplicity of design and the bespoke carbon fibre chassis and body.

Officially, it’s the fifth car in McLaren’s Ultimate Series, following on from the OG F1 back in 1994 and has the fabulous P1, physics-altering Senna and stretched Speedtail in its family tree. Initially, McLaren was going to build 399, then it was to be only 249 units but realistically it appears that only 149 of these remarkable little 'Speedsters' will be released.

The Elva is powered by an 815hp version of McLaren’s 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8. Performance is beyond extraordinary; 0-100km/h (62mph) takes under three seconds, while the 0-200km/h time (0-124mph) is even quicker than the McLaren Senna at just 6.7 seconds. Absolute purity of feedback is assured thanks to the electro-hydraulic steering, while active aerodynamics, sintered carbon ceramic disc brakes and linked-hydraulic active suspension deliver a track or road drive experience like nothing else this side of a Le Mans prototype.

The McLaren Elva is designed for immersive high-performance driving and not for checking up on your Facebook profile. That said, there is a Central Infotainment Screen in the cockpit (mounted on a carbon fibre arm) that replicates a typical smartphone interface by allowing the driver to flick through multiple applications on a vertical carousel. Applications include satellite navigation, McLaren Track Telemetry, rear-view camera and climate control.
The core of the McLaren Elva is a carbon fibre monocoque, developed with the world-leading composites expertise McLaren has built up since 1981. The open-top roadster does not require any additional strengthening, unlike those adapted from coupe designs or made from aluminium or steel. The lightweight carbon fibre seats are designed to support the head, shoulder and back area of occupants, and six-point harnesses can be specified for track use. A deployable protection system for the occupants is triggered within milliseconds in the unlikely event of a roll-over.

This stunning example dates from 2021 and has covered a total of 8 kilometres from new. It's finished in Silver, Silver Grey and Carbon with the number 4 in white roundels and would fit into any collection of important road cars, or perhaps better still, use it and enjoy it.
