Apparently the moment the McLaren F1 will be replaced is getting closer and closer. Recent, but unofficial reports indicate the fact that its successor already started tests so that in 2014 will be ready to enter the market.
The new car was created to be able to do what the F1 did, to dominate the hypercar world and defeat models like the Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
It will be powered by a new forced induction 5.0-liter V8 unit that will be able to produce 800 horsepower at 7.500 rpm and 590 lb.-ft. of torque between 3.500 rpm and 6.800 rpm. The power will be sent to the wheels through a seven-speed Graziano dual-clutch transmission. The car will feature adaptive dampers, aluminum push-rod suspension and hydraulic rollbars.
The new supercar will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and to 1 to 200 mph in 20 seconds. With this amount of power, the car really needs quality brakes and this is why the carmaker equipped it with a Brembo carbon-ceramic system.
The model will receive different, attractive aerodynamic elements to change a little the serious design.
