Quick Acceleration of the 2020 McLaren Elva
With its powerful engine and lightweight and aerodynamic design, the McLaren Elva delivers very quick acceleration. It can go from zero to 100 kph (62 mph) in less than three seconds. The all-new supercar achieves the zero to 200 kph (124 mph) sprint in just 6.7 seconds.
Unique Design Features of the 2020 McLaren Elva
The 2020 McLaren Elva is specifically geared to customers who want to stand out from the crowd. While it may be hard to believe, the Elva forgoes a traditional windshield for a “windshield made of air.” This is accomplished via the Active Air Management System (AAMS), which deflects air and makes it flow over the vehicle occupants. Additional design elements of the Elva include its lightweight carbon fiber body structure, pronounced fender peaks, a low nose, and the vertically opening dihedral doors. Also, the Elva offers a high level of customization via McLaren Special Operations.
