SPIED: McLaren’s next supercar

2012-11-07 11:17

ULTIMATE DRIVER'S CAR: The McLaren P1 will sit above the MP4-12C and 12C Spider in terms of pricing and performance.

The production version of McLaren’s F1 successor – the – P1 has been spotted during testing.

McLaren has set a (not so) simple goal for its new P1: “To be the best driver's car in the world on road and track”.

The P1 derives it technical and styling inspiration from the British automaker’s racing division.

BIG SHOES TO FILL

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."

McLaren automotive managing director, 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 ever made," he added.
