McLaren launches the lightest road car ever

No roof, no windscreen, no side windows – no problem.

No roof, no windscreen, no side windows – no problem.

McLaren has introduced the first open-cockpit roadster, billed as the lightest road car made to date.

The Elva adds a new dimension to the range-topping Ultimate Series lineage, with every sensory input heightened. The open-cockpit two-seater celebrates the Bruce McLaren-designed 1960s McLaren-Elva sports cars that embodied McLaren’s pioneering design and engineering principles.

McLaren’s design philosophy intrinsically links both aesthetic and technical design, rather than separating the disciplines of design and engineering. Further enhancing the design and intensity of the driving experience is the direct connection to the elements. There is no clear demarcation between the exterior of the McLaren Elva and its interior. (A portfolio of bespoke interior materials is available for the McLaren Elva, allowing customers to personalize their car according to its intended use.)

Only 149 examples of the McLaren Elva are available for customer order, priced from $1,690,000. For more, visit
