McLaren Artura / Audi R8 Comparison

Prestige is something that every Arizona supercar owner hopes to have when they purchase their next vehicle. Nothing is more prestigious than a modern McLaren like the Artura. Being the first hybrid supercar from the brand, the McLaren Artura takes the same elite performance that McLaren fans know and love and adds the benefits of electric power to the equation. Compared to other elite members of the supercar field, such as the Audi R8 fail to encapsulate what makes the Artura such a unique offering in the competitive market.  


  • The Hybrid Powertrain of the Artura Generates More Power Than the Audi R8 
  • Sportiness of Both Vehicles Elevated with Standard RWD Platforms 

Boasting a combination of a vibrant twin-turbocharged V6 engine and a dynamic electric motor, the McLaren Artura generates a phenomenal 671 combined horsepower. This vastly outperforms the standard V10 engine in the R8, which is a dynamic engine in its own right. However, with only 562 horsepower, the Audi falls quickly behind the Artura when it comes to delivering heart-pounding performance across Arizona. Both vehicles come equipped with standard RWD platforms to ensure that nimble handling on the racetrack or just around town is achieved.

Interior Features 

  • The McLaren Artura Delivers a Driving Experience More Attuned to a Race Car Than the R8 
  • Plenty of Infotainment Content to Elevate Any Greater Phoenix Region Adventure 

McLaren designed the Artura to make drivers feel like they are piloting a proper race car. As such, the cockpit has plenty of racing inspiration to get the driver in the right state of mind. This also contributes to the more functional nature of the cabin, as McLaren shed as much weight as possible from the supercar to further elevate the overall performance of the vehicle. However, both vehicles feature plenty of premium infotainment content for those leisurely cruises where enjoyment is the most important thing. Integrated navigation, Bluetooth® connectivity, and SiriusXM® radio capability are shared between the two vehicles.  

Safety Features 

  • Nimble RWD Handling Responds Accurately to Any Arizona Road or Track 
  • Customers Can Elevate Their Supercars with Available Driver-Assistance Aids 

Since Arizona driving is a consistent experience throughout the year, the sharp responsiveness of the RWD platforms that the McLaren and the Audi sport offer substantial handling precision that drivers can trust. Customers looking at the McLaren Artura can also further supplement their sporty hybrid supercar with additional features. These include premium features such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Automatic High-Beam technology for safer nighttime driving.

Bought a 720S from them. Was an easy and great experience. The owner CJ is the MAN on the track and he is a real car guy.

Just picked up my McLaren 720s for it's annual service and must say the service department is always on point. The Service Manager, Ralph, and Lead Tech, Nick, who did the actual service, walked me through the annual service and invoice. The attention to detail at this dealership has been amazing! This is my second McLaren I have purchased from the dealership. Jared and Eilon in sales/Management have always gone out of their way to make sure I knew of every option for the car and even some special MSO options to tailor each car to my wants and needs. They offer to pick up/drop off my car, etc. An overall excellent experience!

Best service I have ever experienced! Izzy at Scottsdale Mclaren is an absolute genius when it comes to knowledge about Mclaren’s. He went way above and beyond by replacing a missing blade in one of my keys and changing the batteries in each key fob. The down pipes and tune are out of this world! My 2020 720s is truly one of the best super cars! Paul, one of their high end transporters took incredible care of my car and of my wife and I. Paul reached out and helped us get several of our cars up and running. He has become a family friend. I cannot say enough great things about Scottsdale Mclaren! Definitely shop there.

Service center is great. Ralph is extremely knowledgeable and takes care of their customers at the McLaren HQ level. Always a worry with exotic car dealers / service centers but not McLaren Scottsdale.

My husband and I had just gotten our McLaren and only been for 1 short ride when a packrat had made a home in it and caused a lot of damage.Izzy and the crew at McLaren Scottsdale were absolutely great!They went above and beyond to get our car repaired and returned to us quickly. They updated me every step of the way and there were no surprises! Really a pleasure working with them.

Awesome Visit. Eilon was great, knowledgeable and not pushy. My daughter and I stopped in yesterday to look at a couple cars. Friendly greeting when we walked in and good visit all around. Easy relaxed feel where we got to see what we wanted to, got the information we needed and weren't pushed. The cars they had in the Showroom were incredible. my daughter really liked looking at them all and the different colors. While neither car we went to see is the right one for our current needs, we'll definitely check back in the future.
The McLaren Scottsdale experience starts with an amazing lineup of cars. McLaren’s racing DNA shows through each one with awesome power, stunning color pallets, and captivating aerodynamic design. These cars need to be driven. They demand it. Whether tracked on occasion or driven daily they deliver a palpable/visceral driving experience. I have been extremely pleased with all aspects of this dealership. Eilon and Jared are great ambassadors of the brand and helped me in the purchase my first then second McLaren. In the shop Ralph, Izzy, and Jaden have been extremely accommodating in keeping first my GT then my 720s spider in top condition. I have been treated very well by this dealership starting at the top with Mike Ward and also his Scottsdale GM Brett Bissey!
