Introducing the McMurtry Spéirling, a silly-fast electric hypercar that captured attention by breaking the Goodwood Hill Climb record last year. Piloted by former Formula 1 driver Max Chilton, this compact performance EV completed the course in an astonishing 39.08 seconds, surpassing the previous record set by Romain Dumas in the VW ID.R by 0.8 seconds. Notably, it achieved an impressive 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration in just 1.4 seconds, leaving onlookers in awe.

Now, McMurtry Automotive has offered the captivating little electric hypercar for production, albeit with a limited run of only 100 vehicles. Automotive enthusiasts will have the opportunity to witness a validation prototype at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed, followed by pre-production prototypes in 2024. Customer deliveries are scheduled for 2025.
The Spéirling Pure is priced at £820,000 before taxes, approximately $1.04 million or €954,000 according to current exchange rates.

For those with the proper bank account, the Spéirling Pure offers a track-only, one-seater electric vehicle constructed with a carbon fiber monocoque. Its compact dimensions measure a mere 3.45 meters (135.8 inches) in length, 1.58 meters (62.2 inches) in width, and 1.02 meters (40.1 inches) in height. Surprisingly, despite its low profile, the car can accommodate drivers up to 6’7″ (two meters) tall and weighing up to 150 kilograms (330 pounds) due to adjustable pedals and a steering wheel.

Under the smallish exterior, the Spéirling packs a staggering 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts) into a lightweight vehicle weighing less than 2,200 pounds (1,000 kilograms). A new fan system sucking it to the ground has been incorporated, improving efficiency by 15 percent and reducing weight by 14 percent compared to the previous setup.

While the exact 0 to 60 mph time is undisclosed, it is expected that the Spéirling will offer exhilarating acceleration akin to its predecessor. With an unrestricted top speed, this remarkable hypercar can reach 190 mph (306 km/h), promising a thrilling driving experience for those fortunate enough to own one.

The 60-kWh battery pack provides a rapid charging time of only 20 minutes, enabling the car to last for 10 laps at Silverstone when driven at full throttle.

As you guessed, you can’t get such a vehicle here in the United States. However, I’m sure with deep enough pockets you can get on the list and import one over here and tell everyone you have THE QUICKEST vehicle around. We’ll believe you!
