McLaren F1 successor could debut in 2012

The rumor mill is churning on McLaren F1 successor as Autocar reports that the new McLaren F1 is coming in 2012. The McLaren F1 belongs to the last century and building a F1 car with a difference is a challenge that newly established McLaren Automotive may well come up to. Nevertheless, McLaren is, as per reports, to unveil its iconic F1 successor in 2012, which was originally planned for 2014.

New vehicle is described as ‘revolutionary’ hypercar and will feature a mid mounted engine and a carbon fiber monocoque, similar in concept to the MP4-12C’s. Aggressive design and built with radical approach, 2012 McLaren F1 will have similarities with its predecessor. Major emphasis has been given on reducing weight and McLaren is expected to find new solutions in this field while break ground, probably with some low emission solutions at the same time.

2012 Mclaren F1 features new wheels and lighting designs that add more to its distinctive looks. Unfortunately, there is no word from the brand on car’s powertrain, gearbox, price and ambiguity also remains whether F1 will inherit the central driving position. However, unlike F1, it won’t be limited edition but a regular series model.
