This that ye see in the picture is the monocoque carbon fiber the next model that will launch the brand of Woking. McLaren is preparing the second generation of Super Series, that is to say, the successors of the 650S and 675LT. The first to arrive is expected to be the replacement for the McLaren 650S Coupé, which is currently known as the internal code of ‘P14’. There will be further developments in the range in the next few years.
The reason is that it will be the first of 15 models who will arrive in the next five years, thanks to the business plan Track22. And this model will be lighter than its predecessor thanks to the Monocage II has improved its strength and stiffness at the same time that I lost weight. With him, the new sports will be in 1.283 kg (18 kg less than the 650S Coupe) which will result in an improvement in dynamics, with a lower center of gravity.
And not only that, but with this new monocoque carbon improves access to the interior of the and the visibility behind the wheel. In addition, the customer may opt for the ‘Visual Monocage‘ for some areas such as the inside of the pillar To have the carbon fiber to the view. What still is not as clear in the new model is its name and its power (which usually go hand in hand). Some rumors suggest that it will be McLaren 720S.
it Is an option a lot of logic that could use a motor V8 biturbo 4.0-liter, which assumes 0.2 litres more displacement than the actual mechanical. The power also would increase up to 720 HP as its name says, which is 50 HP more than the current one. Although there’s still nothing confirmed and we will have to wait until the 7 march at the Geneva motor show, that is when you will see the light of the new model.
