McLaren P12 teaser

McLaren has released this teaser image of its “next exciting chapter” which “will begin in Paris later this month”, they say. We know, or at least we think we do, that this image is an official preview of the P12 supercar.

It’s expected the P12 will have a KERS-equipped version of the 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 found in the MP4-12C. With those added electroherbs it’s predicted the P12 will be sending 800hp to its rear wheels. That’s quite a lot, really.

Back to the scribble above. If you look closely enough you can just make out the front edge of the car. There’s a hint of some quite dramatic front wheel arches, and a less than subtle tip given towards the twin-bubble roof we’re all expecting the P12 to feature. If you look at the headlight to the right of picture you can even make out the McLaren logo daytime running light, as featured on the production 12C.

McLaren will be holding their Paris Motor Show press conference on the late afternoon (European time) of 27 September, so stay tuned for more details.
