McLaren shoots down report of rumored 2+2 sports car
Contrary to reports that have been making their way around the Web the past couple of days, McLaren has made it unfailingly clear that they will not be building anything that doesn’t fall under the "two seats, mid-engine" platform that it has always used in the past.
Reports began circulating that after McLaren placed a huge order to purchase carbon monocoques, a new range of cars would be developed to complement the MP4-12C, and all subsequent two-seaters, in the future. Apparently, according to Mark Harrison, McLaren’s PR chief, those reports are neither true nor are they accurate.
In a text message sent to Inside Line, Harrison made it clear that McLaren has no intention of building a 2+2, saying that "we are only planning ’pure’ high performance sports cars — two seats, mid-engine."
There you have it, fellas. No 2+2’s in the pipeline for McLaren. At least not anytime soon.
