This McLaren Speedtail owners car is DEAD?

 

Oh dear! These hybrids from what I'm hearing including others are too high maintenance perhaps! Haven't watched it fully. But it's that wireless charging seemingly.

BMW and AUDI in bidding war for MCLAREN? WTH?

https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-news/industry-news/mclaren/bmw-and-audi-in-bidding-war-for-mclaren/

Qoute>"BMW is reportedly focused on acquiring McLaren Automotive, the maker of cars including the Senna, 765LT and upcoming hybrid Artura. It would sit nicely in the company’s stable of British brands alongside Rolls-Royce and Mini.

Audi, meanwhile, wants the supercar business as well as the F1 team. Audi’s owner Volkswagen Group continually circles the pinnacle of motor racing, with both its Porsche and Audi brands periodically tipped to join the series."

The ONLY thing I will say is THIS, it was actually Car Magazine that were responsible for breaking the Rimac and Bugatti buy out or merger last year. I thought it was complete sensationalism and unfounded with no verification.

LOL! So THIS time I'm keeping quiet. But if you read the article, well it's obvious VAG have already got their (ex) men in position!

I'm still somewhat shocked! Audi doesn't need McLaren they have Lamborghini.

BMW makes some sense, more sense.

Time will tell.

England out. It's a little late!

Dear Mr Mclaren Speedtail owner(s) can you PLEASE take the beautiful car OUT of "hibernation" and test it 0-100 0-200 0-300 and 0-400km/h. Please use a Dragy or whatever. I've a feeling you'll be very pleasantly surprised and you can SPANK the Bugatti Chiron to 300km/h, well just and possibly beyond.

Thank You.

Mr Mclaren!

Don't expect much in the way of "sexy" metrics, but a BLACK McLaren Speedtail in movement? Ya, all over it! ;)

Quote>"The McLaren-developed battery pack has a power density of 5.2kW/kg, which is thought to be the best power-to-weight ratio of any automotive high voltage battery system. The batteries constantly self-charge when the Speedtail is driven – there is NO ‘plug-in’ element – however, a wireless charging pad that trickle-charges and maintains the battery’s status when the vehicle is not in use is also included as standard."

At NASA the McLaren Speedtail was reputedly driven to 250MPH over 30 times. 30. Now if the the battery is constantly being recharged whilst it's driven I'd expect the charging at 250MPH to be more than 25MPH. As such and I'll try to reach out to their specialist division for confirmation, but there's NO "proof" of the electric motor power or E motor losing it's power throughout the range to it's electronically controlled speed limitation.

I believe it can power and keep cycling it's battery to enable FULL power to it's outright velocity maximum. Ultimately we've covered alot below but with the right tyres and conditions and place i.e. Ehra-Lessien where McLaren have been allowed before (unlike some "manufacturers") I believe she can go to 290MPH region (270MPH region on internal combustion alone)

Maybe a little more. Can she beat 304.773MPH? I don't believe so.

The secrecy around her aerodynamics numbers particularly co efficiency of drag are a little bit silly. McLaren should release all the information.

Maybe we will see an unlimited version do a productions run at NASA. It's a DAMN shame if this doesn't occur. A start would be an independently measured and instrumented test of current acceleration and limited speed claims.

But Mclaren have sold all of the Speedtail's including the pre prototype's as far as I'm aaware. I can't see an owner wanting to see his or her car pushed to 250MPH+. DAMN it!

Quotes>"The electric motor, which uses Formula E-derived technology, generates MORE than 230kW."

OK.

Quote>"As an indication of how McLaren technology has advanced, the power density of this battery is four times that of the unit in the McLaren P1™, providing 5.2kW/kg and an output of 270kW."

OK.

This quote is taken from Google search>"30 Apr 2020 — McLaren Speedtail has the highest specific battery power of any ... in the McLaren P1™, providing 5.2kW/kg and an output of 362bhp (270kW)."

OK. So the battery has the capacity for 270kW and the electric motor puts out more than 230kW?

Well it's 270kW accordingly to McLaren. Maybe peak performance but nevertheless it's way more than 309hp advertised.

So they underate (seemingly) their electric output as well internal combustion output so correspondingly their hybrid output is off. Combined it's WAY higher again perhaps peak it's not like they spell it out. However the upside is it's got more power.

Got to Love Mclaren!

Oo

This ONE keeps "popping" up constantly even when running numbers on COMPLETLEY different production cars as projects! Let me put it this way it's 400KG LESS weight than a standard production Bugatti Chiron with 500HP less almost (let's just forget the McLaren "bump") it's got a VERY high technical capability in terms of it's ride AND handing and those people who have driven it confirm the former or latter or both. It's an INCREDIBLY fine production car. So again would I take it over the standard production cars from Bugatti and Koenigsegg? FK yes! The Bugatti Chiron Supersport? Surprisingly YES! The Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+ significantly and historically important Bugatti? We will see when it comes out? But WHAT about the Pagani Huyara?

Dammit there's SERIOUS competition there and I hardlly talk about them anymore? Lotus Evija? Aston Martin Valkyrie?

FFS I wish I was rich! They don't choose they seemingly buy EVERYTHING! LMAO!

This video dropped lastnight. I was alerted to it's presence!

DON'T want to spoil it but WILL regardless.

Straight to the top of the tables! Doug's recently reviewed and driven alot of Bugatti's and the Koenigsegg Regera.

Andrew Frankel drove one awhile back in England (where I live) and reported on it's capabilities. He's driven just about everything. Taken into account with what Chris Harris stated on acceleration aerodynamics and handling I knew it'd do good with the technology it was packing too.

Anyway. McLaren are number one?

Ha.

@Dav1d
I was also curious to calculate the acceleration and top speed of the Speedtail. If you are so interested in this topic, I can post the results here a bit later.
Unfortunately, drag coefficient isn’t available at the moment, so I will use my estimated-0.25. Perhaps in reality it is lower.

An user with a nickname of ''Chiron SS'' just deleted his comment. He made a claim that he had calculated the acceleration figures and the top speed for the Speedtail. I asked for evidence and instead of proving his claims, he insulted me in many different ways. At the end when I exposed him of secretly editing one of his replies, he deleted the original comment and therefore an entire conversation.

R.I.P. the comment of @ChironSS. You will always be in our hearts.

I'm just disappointed in the change from the f1, with almost 30 years since the f1 they gained 10 mph and about 400 hp

Basically a more aerodynamic 1000hp 720S with 3 seats
Which is not a bad thing :)

0-400km/h= is around the 29 seconds mark. Currently.

EDIT: 27 to 29 seconds.


User avatar

ChironSS  6m ago

So after factoring in triple checking my calculations indicate that theoretically even with 15% drivetrain train losses that the Mclaren Speedtail taking gearing, aerodynamics and other factors has a top speed potential of 286MPH!

This is using factory McLaren manufacturer specifications where possible.

This DOESN'T include the circa extra 100hp or so that McLaren V8 engines seem to produce extra over and above their quoted power outputs. I may just work that out! :)

I'm looking at metrics from absolutely every angle. This hypercar is MASSIVELY misunderstood and underappreciated. I CAN'T believe I'm saying this but I'd have one over a Bugatti Chiron. It's THAT good.

I love mclaren lol

pretty sure this car is as quick as the regera cause mclaren underrates their figures and they stopped after 400 but it could get potentialy 410 or 420 kph

The Speedtail has recorded a speed of 250 mph at Johnny Bohmer Proving Ground's runway no less that 30 times in testing. Impressive

Can someone do a simulation for acceleration on this thing? I'm guessing 0-60 in 2.4 seconds.

wonder what the drag coefficient of this is and what it could do with 1600hp (aftermarket tune?)
