The name “Speedtail” should be taken seriously with this beauty. McLaren’s fastest car ever built is designed to be all slipstream, with aerodynamics playing into every feature, from the custom wheel covers to the single-piece rear chassis. What better way to take advantage of its 1000+ horsepower hybrid engine and reported 402 km/h top speed?
— Official description [1]

The 2019 McLaren Speedtail - abbreviated as Speedtail '19 - is a RWD hybrid hypercar by McLaren featured in Forza Horizon 4 since the Update 20 patch.

Unlock in Forza Horizon 4

It is unlockable as a Hard-to-Find car.

Synopsis

The McLaren Speedtail is a limited-production hypercar that debuted in 2019. As the fourth addition to the Ultimate Series, the Speedtail is a hypercar with grand tourer characteristics.

Platform

Designed as a low-drag car, the Speedtail uses a streamlined body with an elongated rear. To minimize the amount of panel gaps, the carbonfiber body was constructed with as many large panels as possible, including a one-piece rear clamshell that is the largest carbonfiber bodywork made by McLaren to date. Other notable aerodynamics solutions include the covered front wheels and retractable rear view cameras instead of side mirrors.

Similar to the 1993 McLaren F1, the Speedtail has a centrally-located driver position and two passenger seats behind on each side, providing greater visibility for the driver. The passenger seats are incorporated into the chassis to increase rigidity and space.[2]

Drivetrain

Offering 1036 hp (773 kW) and 847 ft·lb (1148 N·m) of torque, the Speedtail is the most powerful McLaren car to date. It uses the 'M840T' twin-turbo V8 engine that debuted in the McLaren 720S alongside an electric motor for a parallel hybrid configuration.

Performance

The Speedtail is the fastest production McLaren to date, being capable of reaching 250 mph (402 km/h) as top speed. Requiring only 12.8 seconds from 0 to 186 mph (299 km/h), it is currently also the quickest accelerating McLaren production car.[3]

Trivia

  • The front wheel covers do not get removed after applying a new Rim Style, although certain styles will clip with the covers.[4]
  • The first Paint Group changes the body color, while the second Paint Group changes the color of the front wheel cover.
  • The active rear flaps can neither be deployed nor retracted in Forzavista.
  • Entering the Speedtail from the right-hand door in Forzavista causes an issue where the player's view is not centered.
