Whether it was the all-new 765LT, a slew of special-edition Senna supercars, or even its Goodwood Gulf-liveried Elva, McLaren has managed to keep itself busy in a year that has brought most other automakers to a standstill. Nevertheless, it has one final reveal before 2020 comes to a close, and it’s easily the most anticipated one yet.
The Sabre has landed. Having teased everyone with a set of secretive patent applications earlier this July, McLaren is finally delivering the first of its ultra-exclusive hypercars, and it was well worth the wait. It’s powered by a twin-turbo V8 capable of putting down 824hp and 590lb-ft of torque — the most powerful non-hybrid car Mclaren has ever made. But that’s not all — with a top speed of 218mph, it’s also the fastest two-seater Mclaren to date. And while the rest of the details are a bit hush-hush for the time being, this we do know: McLaren has worked extensively with Sabre buyers in order to deliver a car exactly to their specifications. What’s more, it’s only been homologated for the United States because of its cutting-edge innovations and tech. Prices haven’t been announced, but they don’t need to be — all 15 cars are already spoken for.
