This month, McLaren opened a cutting-edge new production facility in England - an event important enough to prompt a visit from British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Bigger news than Mr Cameron's visit was the announcement of McLaren's next big project: the MP4-27.
The question that went unanswered however is whether that project is for a successor to the legendary F1 supercar, or McLaren's next Formula 1 race car (replacing the 2011 MP4-26). You'd reckon it's the latter.
McLaren meanwhile remains quiet on the details for its next supercar, known internally as the P12, but reports out of Europe suggest a target of around 600kW and a 0-100km/h time below three seconds. Of course.
