824-HP Sabre Is the Most Powerful Nonhybrid McLaren Yet

  • This is the McLaren Sabre, which is exclusive to the U.S., with only 15 built.
  • It’s powered by a 824-hp twin-turbo V-8 that’s the most powerful nonhybrid McLaren engine to date. It’ll do a claimed 218 mph.
  • Each of the 15 has been built specially for its new owner, and the customers were welcomed into the development process.

    McLaren Special Operations’ bespoke division has built 15 of its new 824-hp hypercar called the Sabre, and it’s exclusively for U.S. customers. The first one has been delivered by McLaren Beverly Hills, which said the Sabre features “ideas and innovations that global homologation would not permit,” which is why it’s exclusive to the U.S.

    The Sabre looks like the offspring of the $2 million–plus 250-mph McLaren Speedtail and the 789-hp Senna. However, the bespoke Sabre is a completely new car from MSO, with each built specifically for one of the 15 clients, who were also involved in the development process. Although each is unique, they all have swing-up doors and a huge dorsal fin that connects to a massive rear wing.

    The Sabre’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 is the most powerful nonhybrid McLaren engine to date, producing 824 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. McLaren won’t share any other specs, but it’s claimed to reach 218 mph, making it the fastest two-seat McLaren ever—the F1 and Speedtail have three seats.

    McLaren told Car and Driver that the other 14 cars will be delivered in the coming months. It didn’t disclose the Sabre’s price, but it’s likely well over $1 million.
