A little bit more than year ago we got the news that Mercedes-Benz and Mclaren were going to split. Some time later the end of the McLaren SLR was announced aswell. That was a lot of bad news in less than a year. Luckely it didn’t take long before we got some rumours about a Mclaren called P11 and today some new pictures appeared of what could be the final design of McLaren’s second model, the McLaren F2 which is announced for 2012 earliest. This means that McLaren isn’t dead after creating two of the finest supercars out on the roads.
We also know that McLaren are currently developing a new engine based on the current power unit found in the SLR. Rumours say that the cylinder count will be presented in a V10 with 600 bhp maximum power. This might be less than the current SLR, but to counter this, the supercar maker will re-engineer and strip down the model to drop the overall weight. Any engine details for the McLaren F2 aren’t know yet, but we guess they could come soon…stay tuned!
