McLaren provides few details on the roadster version of the Elva beyond the obvious power figures, but the Woking-based manufacturer does say that the slight weight increase includes not just the structure of the windscreen (which is heated), but also the rain-sensing wipers, washer jets, and sun visors. Since there’s no need for it, the Active Air Management System, which directs air above the cabin, has been deleted. McLaren gives no word on how much this version of the car will cost or how many will be made but does say that the total production run will still be 149 units. The screenless Elva is certainly getting rarer and more valuable by the day, but does this modification prove that open speedsters are pointless? Perhaps, but we still enjoy looking at them while the fad lasts.
