McLaren Elva Is an 804 hp Open-top Monster
Featuring a design inspired by Bruce McLaren’s minimal 1960s racers, the McLaren Elva is a modern day roadster that is said to be the lightest production car the UK automaker has ever created. Weighing in at just 2965 lb, the $1.7 million-plus, open-top supercar packs an 804 hp turbo V8 in back that can launch it from 0 to 62 mph in less than 3 seconds, and 124 mph in 6.7 seconds, making it even faster to that mark than the Senna.
