2014 McLaren P1

McLaren has already confirmed that a successor for the legendary F1 supercar will be unveiled sometime in 2013. Codenamed the MP4-27, this future supercar has been caught testing a few times, and based on those images, we have prepared a new rendering.

As for the inner workings of the MP4-27, rumors say it will share a similar carbon Monocell structure as the MP4-12C and will be powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine combined with a KERS energy storage system. So, for those that were hoping to see a V12 under the supercar’s hood, forget it; McLaren has confirmed that none of its future models will get V12 engines. However, even with a V8 engine under the hood, the MP4-12C will deliver impressive performance: 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds!

The McLaren MP4-27 will be built in a limited number of 300-500 units and will be priced somewhere in the $1 million area.

A successor huh?! Let’s see if it can be a history maker like McLaren F1 does. I am so excited about it.

The successor is truly something that has acquired its predecessor’s dynamics, yet its power has even expanded.

Just like the predecessor, it’s a record achiever for the top speed it can perform on.

It’s most certainly like what has been released before it; impressively powerful and fast.

I was wondering why this wasn’t on the list yet before, then I fail to realize that this is new. It’s just like its predecessor; high-performing and boosting with speed.

This truly belongs to the track, you’ll know it once you see its specs, and as you watch it perform, you can tell that this doesn’t deserve to be on normal roads.

It’s absolutely true that this is awe-striking because of its great aggressive looks and performance, but is this even legal on the road? I’d rather not consume it for that price if I can’t really handle its power and speed.
