The boss of all things McLaren Ron Dennis recently sat down with an Australasian website to talk about the McLaren F successor. According to him, the new hyper car will be introduced ot the world in May with aggressive styling, nothing conservative like the MP4-12C, and superb performance. It won’t, however, go after Bugatti Veyron’s top speed.
That is not because they can’t. After all, the original McLaren F1 was for years the world’s fastest car with a top speed of 386km/h back in 1993. They definitely know how to make fast stuff, but Ron says it’s irrelevant. This is the man don’t forget who created the MP4-12C. He’s entirely brain, there’s no heart and soul in him!
Ron does not reveal any performance figures and refuses to talk about the engine as well, but he says the car will offer a “complete package of performance” and will be more refined and easier to live with than the original car.
The car won’t be as fast as the Bugatti, but it’s not as expensive either. Expect a price tag of around €750,000 and production run of between 300 to 500 units.
