Remember the McMurtry Spéirling that broke the Goodwood Hillclimb record?

A new, improved production version is now available, which means you can go out there and buy one right now.

Well, provided you’ve got about seven figures to spend on a car, that is.

They call it the McMurtry Spéirling PURE and it’s powered by a twin-motor electric heart, capable of delivering 1,000 horsepower.

The car has a range of 300 miles – or 483 kilometers, and it charges faster than the previous model.

It is capable of going around Silverstone 10 times at full chat, recharging in 20 minutes, and starting all over again.

Not only is this faster than the record-holder, it corners harder, too.

According to McMurtry, the Spéirling PURE can pull 3Gs in the corner.

In plain English, this brings a significant advantage along with a downside.

The advantage is the car will feel and drive like it’s on rails, the downside is your face will feel like it’s trying to break away from your head.

Like being inside a washing machine – but in a fun way.

This is still the fastest car in the world.

It does 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 1.40 seconds and it does the quarter-mile run in just 7.97 seconds.

For reference, the Bugatti Chiron Sport is one second slower than that.

The Ferrari LaFerrari? Two seconds slower.

The car is still made from carbon fiber, but McMurtry made a few changes to it and the production Spéirling is now 14 percent lighter than the first prototype.

It weighs less than 1,000 kg, meaning it has a power-to-weight ratio of 1:1.

Production is capped at 100 units, with deliveries scheduled for 2025.

And the price? Well, it’s not cheap.

The Spéirling PURE starts at £820,000 plus taxes – well over USD $1 million at today’s rate.
