Arrow McLaren P1 Revealed

McLaren has just revealed their new supercar concept via Facebook, its called the P1. No technical specifications has been revealed.

Its a new concept supercar, not a Special Project 12C.

I am guessing, the F1 successor!

Quote:
McLaren via Facebook: The wait is over – we are thrilled to officially announce that McLaren Automotive will be using the Paris Motor Show 2012 to preview our next generation ultimate supercar, the McLaren P1. Along with today’s release of the first ever photographs of our latest supercar, McLaren Automotive Managing Director Antony Sherriff, laid out his vision for the McLaren P1 “To make the most exciting, most capable, most technologically advanced and most dynamically accomplished supercar ever made - 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.” McLaren Automotive Executive Chairman Ron Dennis also hinted that The McLaren P1 is set to draw technological and spiritual inspiration from our Formula 1™ team – ‘The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage,’ More details will be released on Thursday 27 September 2012 in Paris and we will be bringing you extensive coverage from the show, so be sure to check back regularly for all the latest news and exclusive content. Excited? We are…

This is going to be the F1 successor, not a special edition. Member S350l-e240 is possibly going for the launch.

I feel they ruined it partly for those eagerly waiting for The Paris Show on September 27th!

Anyway, it looks like a concept car, I mean the design! The rear looks absolutely stunning!

More details have been revealed.

McLaren has taken the wraps off its P1, the company’s all-new 'ultimate supercar' ahead of its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show. The P1 is a design study with one simple goal in mind – to be the best driver’s car in the world, on road and track. Sources close to the company have revealed that the new model is likely to produce around 960bhp with the help of a Formula 1-style Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). The P1 is not designed to outrun a Bugatti Veyron, say insiders; it is more about exceptional lap times.

960bhp

Not deadly like a Lamborghini, not flamboyant like a Ferrari! It simply looks cute.

Love those meeky eyes, hunchback design and that tall exhaust. Now only if I had the right kind of money, I'd buy this for my wife

I was expecting the F1 successor to be a unique design, not a 12c on steroids. IIRC 458 was far better than 12c when pitted against each other in a 5th gear show. Hope it lives up to the F1 name. BTW driver in the centre?

Here's a video with the exhaust note of the P1, sounds tantalizing.

Cool re: McLaren P1 Revealed

P1 Monogram looks similar to the F1 Monogram.


Cheers,

Kaushik.
