The McLaren Artura is old news. That is, it’s been around for a couple of years, effortlessly dispelling the “no replacement for displacement” rhetoric everywhere it went. However, for 2025, the McLaren Artura returns with bragging rights abound, including a sun-soaked Spider version and a commendable bump in power.

The Artura returns for 2025 with much of the same. Dramatic styling, carbon fiber aplenty, and a hybrid twin-turbo V6 in place of a V8. However, the 2025 McLaren Artura Spider adds a retractable hard-top convertible option to the supercar’s formula.

Further, power output rises to 690 horsepower from the Artura’s hybrid twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6. It’s a bump of 19 ponies over the previous model. However, torque figures remain the same, namely 531 lb-ft.

As such, you’d expect snappy performance from the new Artura Spider. The British performance car marque quotes a sprint to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds, around 0.4 ticks behind the much more rigid hardtop supercar.

Power is channeled through the previous model year’s eight-speed dual-clutch. However, the 2025 Artura and its Spider variant feature a shift-quickening “pre-fill” facility. The new feature pressurizes the gearbox’s hydraulic fluid to shorten shift times by up to 25%.

What’s more, Car and Driver describes the styling as “modern almost alien-inspired.” It’s true; McLaren’s approach to dramatic supercar styling leaves behind the conventional. That much is obvious with the McLaren Artura Spider. Squinted lamps, swooping curves, and pronounced intakes certainly make the drop-top Artura appear as though it could lift off at any time.
