McLaren Supercar Concept Teased
McLaren has big plans for the Paris Auto Show, and today is teasing its upcoming P12 supercar concept which will be seen for the first time on the show floor in France.
The new car is the spiritual successor to the fabled F1, and might even receive the name P1 in tribute. It will sit above the MP4-12C in terms of price and performance, although both cars will use the same 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V8 powerplant. Horsepower and torque are expected to be boosted in the P12, but where it will really shine is aerodynamics. The car is supposed to tout the “world’s best aerodynamics”, according to Ian Gorsuch, regional director of McLaren for Asia Pacific.
The teaser itself shows a vague silhouette of the car that only gives away the wider front fender flares. If this new concept is anywhere near as extreme as the X1 concept shown at Pebble Beach, it will surely rid the reputation for subdued style that was given to the brand thanks to the MP4-12C.

Could this be the GT-R competitor that's been in the works? Mentioned it on the blog when posting about "The Mclaren Boom":

^^^ You didn't misread the information.. Mclaren are working on a car above the Mp4-12c AND below the Mp4-12C to compete with the GTR/Porsche Turbo.. The F1 successor will be very expensive and NOT compete with the GTRI'm the resident L4P app guy
