The press days for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show are now over and in the midst of the McLaren MP4-12C stealing the show in terms of tuning packages, McLaren is already working on another supercar: the replacement for the legendary McLaren F1.
Known as the MP4-27, or the Mega-Mac, the new supercar was revealed by a Thai edition of CAR magazine. This is surely just a rendering of the car, but it will definitely help get a good picture of what’s to come. The new MP4-27 was designed by McLaren;s Design Chief, Frank Stephenson, and is believed to feature a very futuristic appearance. Under the hood, McLaren will be placing an upgraded version of the MP4-12C’s 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which will have its output pushed closer to 800 HP.
The official debut for the new McLaren MP4-27 will be made this May at the 2012 Monaco Grand Prix, but sales won’t begin until later in 2014.
