WE DON'T NORMALLY endorse products or magazines at TMR, however every so often a story comes out that is too good not to shamelessly plug.
Car magazine in the UK always seems to have its finger on the pulse of the European auto industry and now seems to have struck gold with a world exclusive concerning a new McLaren supercar.
The legendary Mclaren F1 supercar was launched in 1993 and is still held in reverence by performance car fans the world over. This time around McLaren is preparing to produce what looks to be a smaller, lighter, stronger and more nimble supercar, codenamed the P11.
The Mclaren P11 will be V8 powered and will feature technology and manufacturing techniques derived from lessons learnt in the F1 racing series, however I am unable to confirm if any classified Ferrari documents have influenced the design of the P11 ??? sorry, couldn???t resist.
Expect an official unveiling over the coming months with production expected to start around 2010.
