This roughly translates to the introduction of a new design language, the more extreme than at present and that will mark the line of upcoming models. Also it will aim to beat the Ferrari 488 GTB. Believe in the brand is the team to beat and it would increase power from 650 horses that have the 650S to about 670 horses , matching the 488 GTB and McLaren still below 675LT.
