The latest addition to McLaren’s Ultimate line up, the open cockpit roadster named Elva, had just been revealed.
The Elva shares its name and design inspiration with the McLaren-Elva M1A of the 1960s. As such, it has no roof, side windows, or windshield, just like the original.
McLaren's answer is the Active Air Management System (AAMS). AAMS encapsulates occupants in an aerodynamic “bubble” by channeling air through the Elva’s nose and out a vent at the front of the vehicle just ahead of the passenger area. With the guiding aid of an active deflector, which rises up to 5.9 inches, the turbulent air shot out through the front vent makes its way over the passenger area, and, in turn, leaves those seated within the Elva in relative calm.
The production version will have a motorised version of AAMS, unlike the static, removable model on this “aero thermal mule.” This was just an opportunity to experience the system in action before the camouflaged car goes off for final development ahead of its 2020 on sale date. McLaren will also offer an actual windscreen in countries where such things are mandatory, like the U.S.
