With Mercedes and McLaren devorcing next year, the end of the production of the SLR announced and lot’s of rumours around a new super Mercedes, it’s more than likely that McLaren on itself will come forward with a new car. Mclaren has been very secretive around the project, codenamde P11, which will be in the showrooms by March 2010 as a coupé and about 2 years later as a spyder version.
The new mid-engined car will directly compete with the Ferrari F430 although the McLaren will be lighter and more compact. Power is said to come close to 550 bhp produced by a V8 engine, which will be produced in England.
The P11 project will then provide the base for a more hardcore version which will be a successor to the legendary Mclaren F1 supercar, codenamed P12. According to leaked documents power will come from a 600 bhp V10 engine. We know it will be hard to beat the looks, power and passion of the McLaren SLR, but we hope the best…
