McLaren Automotive has launched the new Artura Spider for the first time in the Middle East at an event hosted in the iconic design district of Alserkal Avenue, Dubai.

In partnership with Pirelli Middle East, the event showcased the latest addition to the McLaren supercar family to an exclusive group of VIP guests, McLaren owners, and media personalities.

The brand’s first-ever High-Performance Hybrid convertible, the new Artura Spider is introduced with significant upgrades to power, performance, and driver engagement, which combine with the sensory pleasures of open-top driving to add a remarkable new dimension to the Artura.

According to the statement, “Easily the lightest amongst its convertible competition, the Artura Spider enjoys a weight advantage of up to 83kg. Its power-to-weight ratio has been further enhanced by a recalibrated high-performance hybrid powertrain which is now able to release an overall power of 700PS (690bhp) – enabling thrilling levels of performance.”

The dynamic precision is additionally enhanced by Pirelli CyberTM Tyre technology. Comprising hardware and software integrated with Artura’s electronic systems and featuring an electronic sensor inside each tyre, CyberTM Tyre generates real-time data that allow drivers to fully exploit the potential of the fitted tyres.

Robert Holtshausen, Market Director of McLaren Automotive Middle East and Africa, said that, “We have upgraded the powertrain and the chassis systems to deliver more power, more dynamic performance, and even higher levels of connection with the driver – without any compromise in everyday driving. The Middle East is a key market for McLaren Automotive, and the new Artura Spider represents the ideal all-round offering for our discerning customers.”

The unveiling of the new Artura Spider is accompanied by the introduction of the MY25 Artura Coupe which benefits from all the same improvements, further enhancing its status as the next-generation supercar.
