McLaren Speedtail build slots open up from $8.5 million
McLaren F1 has always been among some of the most iconic supercars of all time. Now, the brand has brought the successor to McLaren F1 – Speedtail. Unveiled last year, only 106 models of the Speedtail are set to be manufactured making it the most exclusive car from the makers of the legendary F1.
Initially, when Speedtail was unveiled, buyers were not able to afford the $3.4 million price tag on this supercar since every car was already accounted for. But, if you fall into the minority who can afford this beast, there is another opportunity.
For $8.5 million, a used car is available in the build slots from an owner in Dubai. Those lucky enough to get their hands on the Speedtail surely know about the iconic three-seat cabin layout as the F1. But, if you are not aware of it, Speedtail features a central driving position with two passenger seats set in a good position so as not to interfere with the driver’s visibility. On top of that, the Speedtail utilizes rear-view cameras instead of the conventional mirrors for better control over the vehicle.
As per McLaren, Speedtail is the ‘hyper GT’ which is a track monster and its 1035Hp will make it look like a flash of lightning. This monster might not hit the roads. Along with that, there are no reports about the power train of the Speedtail but it is expected to sport a twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 hybrid system churning out 762kW. With such incredible power, this hypercar will be able to complete the 0-300kmph sprint in just 12.8 seconds, faster than Bugatti Chiron.
