McLaren has offered another new preview of its upcoming P1 superhero, this time showing off the car's "minimalist" cabin design.

The image is the latest in a growing line of teasers: last week we saw the F1-inspired instruments, and the exterior design was previewed openly in September.

This latest shot reveals the spartin cabin of the new McLaren F1-replacing hypercar, decked floor-to-ceiling with exposed carbon fibre and little else.

The P1's interior offers almost nothing that isn't strictly necessary, all in the interests of weight reduction. There's no sound deadening in the cabin, and even carpet is an optional extra.

There's not much in the way of padding on the seats, and the carbon fibre shells weigh just 10.5kg each. Standard seatbelts will be included, but anchor points for six-point harnesses will also feature.

Seat recline is limited, offering two settings: 28 degrees from vertical, and 38 degrees from vertical, accommodating helmeted drivers.

Seat height? Specified at the time of ordering, so if your friend wants to have a drive (and if you're brave enough to let him), he'd better be your height or come ready with a cushion.

A few creature comforts remain, however; climate control, navigation and an audio entertainment system have all been developed specifically for the P1 by Meridian.

Watch for more details to come at the P1's Geneva Motor Show unveiling in March.
