McLaren will launch four new models in India and announce their prices soon. They include the McLaren GT, the 720S in coupe and spider form, and the Artura. The official configurator on the brand's website is showing India as a region, which implies that customers will be able to book a car from the comfort of their homes. Here are more details.
McLaren GT has a sloping roofline, a muscular bonnet, sleek headlights, designer multi-spoke wheels, and wide air vents on the sides.

It can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds and has a top-speed of 326km/h.
The McLaren Artura is based on the MCLA platform and has a muscular bonnet, inverted L-shaped headlamps, soft-close doors, blacked-out alloy wheels, and twin exhaust tips. It has a 2-seater cabin, featuring a flat-bottom steering wheel, an MIS II touchscreen infotainment panel, and multiple airbags. The vehicle runs on a hybrid powertrain that delivers 680hp/720Nm and allows it to clock a top-speed of 330km/h.
The McLaren 720S is offered in both coupe and spider forms. The latter has a convertible roof that can fold down in just 11 seconds and can be operated at a speed of up to 50km/h.
