How to design a McLaren P1
TG speaks to the man who penned Woking’s new hybrid hypercar

Stephenson is currently working on McLaren's Porsche 911 rival - yes, they're doing one - code-named ‘P13'. And if you're expecting a baby P1, you may be wrong. "P13 is going to be different to 12C and P1, but in a much fresher way," says Frank. All the cars have to hang together as they're going to sit in the same dealership, so you don't want one to look like it's got an odd father. I can say that the quarter window will relate to all the cars and is very ‘F1-ish' [that's the F1 road car, not race cars]. Also the line down the side of the P1 is from the F1."
