The production version of McLaren’s F1 successor has been spotted undergoing testing. Check out the new P1!

The production version of the successor to the McLaren F1 has been spotted doing test runs. McLaren has a simple aim for its new P1 and that is “to be the best driver's car in the world on road and track”.

Though a concept, the car was on display at the Paris auto show in October 2012, we'll have to wait until 2014 for the actual car to arrive.

RAISE SUPERCAR BAR

Actual details are scarce, but McLaren boss Ron Dennis said: "The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage. Twenty years ago we raised the supercar performance bar with the McLaren F1 and our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again."

The car has taken technological inspiration from its racing division

McLaren Automotive MD Antony Sheriff said: "Our aim is not necessarily to be the fastest in absolute top speed but to be the quickest and most rewarding series production road car on a circuit.

"It is the true test of a supercar's all-round ability and a much more important technical statement. Our goal is to make the McLaren P1 the most exciting, most capable, most technologically advanced and most dynamically accomplished supercar yet made."

There is no indication of its expected price but it is likely to be sit above the 12C and 12C Spider in terms of both price and possibly performance.
