Mark your calendars people, as 10 December 2017 will be the day we see McLaren’s fastest road legal car for the first time.
The British firm announced the full reveal date while releasing a new teaser image of the rear of the car (above), promising the “ultimate track-concentrated McLaren.” The rhetoric in the press release is generally rather strong, with talk of “the most extreme road-legal McLaren ever” and a note about how the hypercar will see “daily usability sacrificed to give the most intensive driver experience around a circuit.” In other words, Woking is not mucking about here.
Unlike the P1/P1 GTR, the P15 is expected to do without a hybrid system, instead relying solely on a modified version of the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 in the 720S. Don’t be surprised if the official power output approaches 800bhp.
The car - which will be “available in strictly limited numbers” - is going to arrive before the ‘BP23’ three-seater F1 homage, making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next March. We can’t wait.
