McLaren will reveal the first of two upcoming million-dollar supercars next spring as it competes with the likes of Aston Martin and Mercedes-AMG for the attention of the world's billionaire enthusiasts.
The new car, code-named P15, is the long-awaited replacement for the $1.15 million McLaren P1 hybrid produced between 2013 and 2015. The British sports car maker said the newcomer will be its most extreme track-focused road car yet, with a "brutal" design and a driver experience focused on getting around a track as quickly as possible. To that aim, "daily usability is being sacrificed," McLaren said.
The entire run has been assigned to current McLaren owners, if not paid for, and is expected to be close to the P1's production total of 375. No price or engine details were given, but it's likely to be a hybrid V-8. A teaser picture shows the car's exhaust tips.
The P15 arrives ahead of the McLaren BP23 three-seater, another million-dollar plus hypercar. That's due in 2019, the same year as the Mercedes-AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercars.
