Future McLaren supercar delayed
It seems that McLaren has second thoughts about its future supercar and it sending back to the drawing board for a redesign. The chief of the new design team will be Frank Stephenson, the former BMW, Mini, Fiat and Ferrari designer that will join McLaren Automotive to redesign the family of supercars that McLaren plans to put into production in 2009.
According to AutoCar the P11 will be very different from the first images that have surfaced in the middle of last year. The P11 is also rumored to get an open-top and a GTR version that is supposed to be powered by a 600bhp-plus V10.
The P11 was supposed to be launched later this year, possibly at Paris, or early next year at Geneva. Those dates are now have likely been delayed to later in 2009 or early 2010.
