Watch the McMurtry Automotive Speirling’s 7.97 Second Quarter-Mile Sprint

McMurtry Automotive’s Speirling hypercar was recently examined by Carwow, and the findings are amazing. The electric-powered Speirling speedster, Irish for “thunderstorm,” captured the attention of the automotive industry in June when it shattered the Goodwood Festival of Speed hill climb record — even beating out an F1 race vehicle.


The Speirling is powered by two 1,000hp electric motors and is housed in an exceptionally light carbon-fiber monocoque chassis weighing just under 1000kg. This gives the Sperling a power-to-weight ratio of about 1:1, and when combined with its fan system, which allows for 2,000kg of downforce, the Speirling is a track beast.

The Speirling broke the Carwow road car record with a 0-60mph time of 1.4 seconds, a 0-100mph time of 2.63 seconds, and a quarter-mile time of 7.97 seconds. Check out the video above to see it in action, and stay tuned for updates on production models, which will be priced at around £2 million GBP (around $2.4 million USD).
