Hard to believe that McLaren is working on a car that will slot above the MP4-12C in the lineup. We’ve heard about the new flagship before, and now we have some photos of the first prototype on the road.
It clearly has plenty of recognizable lines from the MP4-12C. Look closer, however, and you’ll notice subtle differences that point to a car that will take everything McLaren knows and turn it up a couple notches. The smaller cockpit, the scalloped hood and a monster central exhaust all point to a car that’s pushing the limits of a streetcar. Expect to hear more about this upcoming McLaren flagship later this year, but if the MP4-12C is any indication, the car you see here will be a fitting successor to the F1.
