The race was held at the newly built Miami International Autodrome, a temporary circuit that wraps around the Miami Dolphins' Hard Rock Stadium, and you can enjoy a first-hand perspective from behind the wheel of a McLaren Artura supercar in this video.
Doing the driving is Bruno Senna, a former driver in F1 and Formula E, and the nephew of F1 legend Ayrton Senna. He talks us through all 19 corners of the 3.36-mile track, and gives some feedback on the performance of the 671-hp Artura. The stunt was actually the North American dynamic debut for the plug-in hybrid supercar.
“The Artura is a car that keeps on giving, especially on a track; it’s smooth and refined but with an aggressive edge that is just waiting to be discovered as you utilise the E-motor combined with the powerful V-6 engine,” Senna said in a statement.
The Artura is powered by a 2.9-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 and an electric motor integrated with the transmission, in this case an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic. It's substantially down on power compared to the mechanically similar Ferrari 296 GTB, which packs 818 hp, though the McLaren boasts a carbon-fiber tub whereas the Ferrari sticks to aluminum construction. Performance estimates include a 0-60 mph time of 3.0 seconds, a 0-124 mph time of 8.3 seconds, and a 0-186 mph run of 21.5 seconds on the way to a top speed capped at 205 mph. The quarter-mile time is 10.7 seconds.
The Artura is priced from $225,000 and starts deliveries in the U.S. in July.
