Hybrid super car is on the books for McLaren
You may have known that McLaren was preparing the P11 supercar, but what you may not have known is that the company also plans to use hybrid technology for its future road going super cars. A McLaren spokesman said: "It (hybrid technology) is something we want as a forward-thinking, technology-driven company. We have been considering it for future projects. All the advert means is that we are looking for a senior engineer in power train hybrid technology. Read into it what you will."
Until then the high performance automaker is preparing to unveil the P11 supercar at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show. The car will go on sale in 2011 and compete with the upcoming Ferrari F-450 and Lamborghini Gallardo. McLaren has a sales target of 5000 units by 2015. If they succeed, this could mean that all future McLaren models would feature some sort of hybrid technology.
