This is the camouflaged early prototype of the McLaren F1 successor, the P12.
The most notable difference between this car and the MP4-12C, which is shares a platform with, is that it is much longer and wider. Also, the P12 sits lower compared to the MP4-12C.
Carrying over from the MP4-12C is the carbon fiber monocoque, dubbed the MonoCell, which will actually be improved to ensure more stiffness and rigidity. Sadly, the two-seater configuration won’t be changing, so you won’t be seeing the 1+2 seating arrangement that was prevalent in the F1.
McLaren will be including a hybrid setup in the P12 based around the MP4-12C’s twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 and will feature the Kinetic Energy Recovery System. McLaren’s KERS will be similar to Ferrari’s KERS system, and when the energy-boost button is used there will be a combined output of around 800hp or more.
Pricing for the P12 is expected to be around $950,000. Depending on the demand that is produced later this year when it is officially unveiled, production numbers of the P12 are expected to be somewhere between 300 and 500 units.
