TopSpeed Rendering: McLaren F1 successor
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.
