Control “yaw” to the successor of the McLaren 650S

McLaren Variable Drift Control

The Super Series, the McLaren expected a new generation of cars that will soon be unfolding with the successor of the McLaren 650S. Such a successor will be officially presented during the month of march on the occasion of the Geneva motor show. As in any relay, even more so if we talk about supercars, it is hoped that the new generation receives higher doses of technology to improve the performance, efficiency, and also the fun at the controls of the new car from Woking.

the successor of the McLaren 650S will be the car that we see in the header with a full-camouflage. The chosen image, demonstrating that we are faced with a powerful car propulsion rear, it is not a coincidence. And is that, in addition to their huge cavalry sent to the rear-wheel drive, the new generation will incorporate a chassis control called “Proactive Chassis Control II”, which will include a feature called “Variable Drift Control”. Yes, an electronic system to facilitate the control of the yaw.

The Ford Focus RS was the first well known model which was decided to incorporate a “mode Drift” between their modes of driving. The designers of the compact Ford discovered it almost by mistake, when detecting a malfunction in the electronic management, which gave them the idea of to distribute the power in a way that would facilitate the yaw. But the Focus RS is not the only model that has dared, and is that even Mercedes has spoken of something similar in the E63 AMG.

But the Proactive Chassis Control II is a lot more that a facility at the time of search and control a skid. This second generation allows the driver to choose between 3 driving modes different as are Comfort, Sport and Track. To improve the version predecessor this chassis takes information from more sensors than before, monitoring and by adapting the response of the car depending on each circumstance.

we Also have active aerodynamic, which will double the efficiency in this sense with respect to the 650S, and a redesign of the cooling of the car, which improves in a 15 % according to the own brand of Woking. An important detail is that this supercar british will have a weight less than 1,300 kilos, which says a lot about the use of lightweight materials, the carbon fiber and the chassis monocoque. We will discover each and every one of the details at the Geneva motor show.
