McLaren P12: Graphically Rendered
Posted on , by Nick Preston
This computer-generated rendering was created by Iacoski Design and is based on information gathered from insider knowledge and several previous prototypes, and it shows a possible look for the new P12, one that is worthy of the ‘new’ F1 title.
This design shows features that McLaren designers might want to take note of including some distinct styling from the original F1, including the air channel on the hood and it’s roof-mounted air scoop. The overall proportions are very similar to that of the F1, which is a good thing!
McLaren still has a lot of work on their hands for the P12 as the last thing the company wants is dissapointment similar to that from the MP4-12C
The P12 is expected to have the same MonoCell carbon-fiber monocque found in the MP4-12C. Powered by an advanced hybrid setup based on the MP4-12C’s twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 which features a Formula 1 inspired Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS). Not much is known about the inclusion of this KERS system, althought it is expected to feature an energy-boost type button and combined output of around 800bhp or more.

Pricing for the P12 is expected to be around the £600,000 mark ($950,000). That’s a steep price to pay, but with a structure built largely from carbon-fiber combined with McLaren’s famous performance and dynamics, it’s sure to be one of the most astonishing performance cars the world has yet seen. Production numbers are expected to be between 300 and 500 units dependant on demand.
