Introducing the Track-Only McMurtry Spéirling Pure

You Can Soon Get Your Hands on a Goodwood Record-Setting McMurtry Spéirling

McMurtry Spéirling made headlines by setting a new lap record at the Goodwood Hill Climb last year. Now, the British startup brand plans to build 100 customer-spec versions of the electric supercar. With its exceptional performance, lightweight design, and dedication to cornering prowess, the new McMurtry Spéirling Pure represents an exciting addition to the track-focused electric supercar market. Here’s everything you need to know about the new car.

Impressive Features

Impressive Features

The track-only vehicle features two electric motors, producing a combined 999 horsepower and weighing under 2,205 pounds. Despite its compact size, the car offers adjustable pedals and steering wheel to accommodate drivers up to six foot seven inches and 330 pounds. With a claimed top speed of 190 mph, the focus of the McMurtry Spéirling Pure lies in its exceptional cornering abilities. Equipped with slick racing tires and two electric turbines at the rear, the car generates significant downforce. While McMurtry hasn’t disclosed the exact figures for the Pure, the original prototype produced around 4,400 pounds of downforce at rest. The downforce-on-demand fan system enables the car to achieve lateral acceleration at accessible speeds, ensuring remarkable grip through corners.

Enhanced Performance and Endurance

McMurtry Spéirling aims to surpass the performance of the record-holding car at Goodwood with the Spéirling Pure. The vehicle is designed to complete multiple laps on full-sized racetracks before requiring a recharge. Its 60.0-kWh battery is integrated into the carbon-fiber monocoque and can be replenished in just 20 minutes, although specific details about the charging setup have not been provided.

Availability and Participation in GT1 Sports Club

After unveiling the first Spéirling Pure prototype at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, McMurtry Spéirling plans to commence production of pre-production prototypes in 2024, with customer deliveries scheduled for 2025. Pricing for the limited edition of 100 units starts at over $1 million. Owners of the McMurtry Spéirling Pure will also have the opportunity to participate in the GT1 Sports Club.

Lando Norris Makes British Formula 1 History in Return of the Motorsport

Lando Norris made his country proud when he broke a record on Formula 1’s return to the track in July. The British driver made an impressive run for the podium, and in doing so, managed to break a record held by the legendary Lewis Hamilton.

Kicking Things Off in Style

Formula 1 kicked off its 2020 season with a bang thanks to an exciting race in Austria. We are just one race in, and there is already a new British record as Lando Norris became the youngest Brit to secure a podium finish at 24 years old. He beat Lewis Hamilton’s record, setting up what appears to be an exciting future for the young driver.

Fighting for the Podium

Things weren’t easy for Norris to make it onto the podium, and he had to drive his car to its limits. Norris entered the hunt for a podium place late in the race when it was clear that Hamilton was getting a five-second penalty. The penalty would be awarded at the end of the race, so the chasing pack knew they needed to be within five seconds to leapfrog Hamilton. That’s when Norris put the pedal to the metal, earning the fastest lap of the race and securing his podium spot by just 0.2 seconds.

Unexpected Finish

Norris acknowledged a podium place was better than McLaren had expected. McLaren has been a struggling team for many years, but the team knew it had a fast car for the beginning of the 2020 F1 season. Norris said it was an unexpected bonus to finish on the podium, but he’d gladly take it.

This is just the beginning for Norris and McLaren as the driver and team look to make an impact at the championship end of the standings. McLaren might have been down and out for years, but it seems like the iconic racing team has found its groove once more.
