The McLaren Elva is the latest car from McLaren to join the ranks of the F1, P1, Senna and Speedtail in the McLaren Ultimate Series category. The Elva is claimed (curb weight is yet unannounced by McLaren) to be the lightest road-going car that McLaren has ever made, even lighter than the Senna which has a weight of 1374 kg. The Elva’s complete body will be made out of carbon fibre.
This extreme speedster from McLaren will have a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which produces 804 bhp. Despite not having a windscreen or any sort of windows, it is acclaimed that the 0-100km/h will be achieved in under 3 seconds and a mere 6.7 seconds will be needed to achieve the 0-200km/h time.
Now owning such a roadster does pose some difficulties like pictured below. That is, escaping cruel weather conditions. Captured by Syouken Photography in Tokyo, the McLaren Elva seems to be caught in the middle of a rainstorm. If you can’t stand to see the R30 000 000+ Elva being drenched in the downpour, you’ll be glad to know that this particular McLaren Elva is just a show car made of wood.
