Now these extremely early teaser images have gotten so pointless that they just look like gaming mice.
Anyone wanna play the price guessing game?
I'm gonna say $1,850,000 base MSRP.
Would this be the successor to the P1?
If anything I hope McLaren figure out a new shape for the car. Everything since the MP4-12C has just felt so damn lazy (even though I do love the 675LT)
This needs to be their new flagship and as such, needs to be something completely new.
P1 felt pretty new. Look about as much like the 12C as an Enzo. The continuity of the design doesn't bug me because it looks good and its functional too (aero wise). Kinda like Konegseig.
I think the engineers just put squiggles on the page, and let people see into it what they will. An automotive Rorschach test, if you will.
Automotive design by way of bowel movement.
Wow! I can clearly tell what this car is going to look like when it gets produced, thanks to a very revealing teaser.
I see what the inspiration is.
BP23 looks set to out-power the P1. Will use the 4.0TT from the 720S mated to a hybrid system.
I see they went for Regera influences.
I can't help but feel that as the number of recklessly expensive supercars approaches infinity, the chances of not having a worldwide, cataclysmic economic death spiral approaches zero. I'm not saying its causal, but at least somewhat corollary.
Just really hope it happens sometime after 2020.
McLaren's naming system is just all over the shop!
I'm surprised they have gone for a more conservative look over the P1.
The numbers reflect the sort of positions that the contemporary McLaren F1 cars can reach.
If they named their car using their F1 performance wouldn't it be called the "McLaren Retired" though?
Thems is fightin' words...
So when is Ferrari going to bring out their Super duper Hyper world destroying car, since McLaren is the third team with an F1 team doing this...
I doubt they'll jump into it with their current halo car reaching what will likely be, it's last major production milestones; the Aperta production is finally underway and the FXXK's Evo-update is on the horizon. Then, you have the 812 Superfast & the 488's swan song model to come after. Their plate seems a bit busy for the time being.
If the Merc. & Mac. are to be anything like what Aston Martin/Redbull are building, I can't see Ferrari jumping into that battle. The way the Valkyrie is designed to start, doesn't strike me as something Ferrari would want from a road car; it's far too aerodynamically-centered in its design & thus, it looks like it'll be sacrificing much of the luxury Ferrari takes pride in.
It'd be cool if all of them built a road car of F1 like prestige...
To be honest I never expected them to, maybe if you changed Ferrari's name to Lamborghini, then it would be very different.
Then, if Ferrari decides to make a "hyper-gt" at some point, we can strap wings to them and bring back GT1.
It would definitely be something up Lamborghini's ally, but I think we've already seen their approach to this with the Egoista. Crazy, just as outlandish looking (if not more) than the Valkyrie and yet, so over the top that Lamborghini never really had any intention of building it. I think the Centenario may be the boundary for them.
Ferrari would be the most interesting since it'd have to be a blend of aero & Ferrari design.
I think Ferrari could do this type of thing if they felt there was a reason to compete with the other 3 manufactures who seems to be using their F1 designers to play a part. But as you said they're busy.
The only reason I can see it happening is because of how crazy their XX programs are and how really unexpected they were from a group that like you said really is more into luxury exotic super cars.
Now that you mention that, it would be a great opportunity to see a hypercar born from all the data gathered from the XX program, & since some of Ferrari's F1 engineers are already heavily involved in that program, they'd be the best people for the job. I think the design is the only challenge for them. How do you make a something like the Valkyrie without it looking like a LMP race car to achieve the performance?
I have no idea, I mean the Aston to me doesn't look like an LMP it just looks like a road going space ship. So if they can do something of the same cut, but with a Ferrari style and an improved FXXK engine or even just the standard La Ferrari but improved, that'd be awesome.
Even if it was derived from the V6 F1 engine just obviously a longer stroke and bore, I think that'd be cool too.
It's still ugly?
Joking aside I'm surprised to see a prototype this early.
I guess it had to happen sooner or later.
Wonder if this'll become an LT-type variant of the 720.
