The British at McLaren are currently making the MP4-12C to complement their incredible Formula 1 presence and success.
It’s an amazing vehicle and a true rival for the Ferrari 458 and anything else you may consider a supercar.
That may be the case but in terms of road cars, McLaren is considered relevant for having made the legendary F1.
Well good news for nostalgia addicts, McLaren will soon make a successor to that F1 model.
The same nostalgia addicts might however be a little disappointed as they find that part if its charm will have disappeared.
Though Gordon Murray claims the design of the F1 was never built for top speed purposes, that 240 mph figure was of enormous impact.
Now however, McLaren claim that while they’re building an F1 successor hypercar but it won’t get to be such a long way ahead in terms of top speed.
Handling, cornering and all other aspects of performance will however be legendary.
The top speed of the McLaren F1 successor couldn’t keep “tradition” for a very simple reason, the Bugatti Veyron SS is a pain in the rear to beat.
This new car will however make an enormous difference in terms of technology. That’s the most important promise Ron Dennis is promising us.
Sure, it’s a bit of a step back in terms of statements of just a couple years ago when the British company’s designer was bashing Bugatti but let’s just be happy the new car is around the corner.
By the way, the release of the new car is scheduled for May of this year so that’s quite amazing.
