McLaren P1: more pics leak online
EDIT: Our voracious Internet hounds have scouted out some more leaked pictures of the rather stunning new McLaren P1, ahead of its Officially Official reveal at the Paris motor show. And the news is...well, we don't know, other than that it appears to have sprouted a rather resplendent rear wing. We'll have the full details and story for you tomorrow, so check back on TopGear.com...
This is it. The successor to one of the greatest cars ever, the Mclaren F1. And McLaren has a very simple aim for its new P1: ‘to be the best driver's car in the world on road and track'.
Well, we say this is it, but it's actually a design concept at this stage - we'll have to wait till 2013 for a production version, then ANOTHER twelve months for the actual car to land. Hardly surprising they want to measure twice and cut once, mind: this car has big shoes to fill.
Actual details are extremely scarce, but McLaren boss, Ron Dennis, says "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."
