McLaren reveals Sabre hypercar, limited to 15 units only

Written by Nayak

British supercar maker McLaren has revealed the Sabre hypercar. This is an ultra-limited edition car and only 15 units will be produced and of which each one is pre-booked by customers in the United States. The Sabre is developed by the special operation team in McLaren.

The technical specification of the hypercar has not been revealed in full, but it is known that the Sabre will be powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 motor which produces 835 HP of power and an astounding 800 Nm of torque. The McLaren Senna had similar performance with its power being rated at 800 HP, 35 HP less than the Sabre and had the exact same torque figure of 800 Nm. The top speed is rated at 351 kmph and thus making it one of the fastest cars from the British carmaker.

This hypercar is based on the Senna, with some modifications. The Senna is one of the hypercar with all the sophisticated tech involved. Named after the legendary F1 driver Ayrton Senna, who is dubbed as the greatest F1 driver to ever live with 3 world championship under his name in 1988, 1990 and 1991. But unfortunately, he died in an accident in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix which shocked the entire motor sporting world. The main key differentiating factors are the changes to the body to adhere to the regulation as followed in the United States. The other additions are a specially designed three-slat wing, rear diffuser, an LMP1-style fin running through the centre of the roof and more. Some reports also suggest that the customers who have booked the cars, each of the Sabre have been tuned to meet the preferences and requirements of the driver. This tuning had been done during a prototype track testing early this year.

The car is available only for the US market because McLaren claims that the innovations and technology involved won’t be permitted in any other country. There are rumours that McLaren is trying to enter the Indian market soon and is currently reviewing all its options.
