Let’s Take A Sneak Peek At The New McLaren Sports Series Hybrid In Production Bodywork

Although the camouflage is quite heavy, one can see that the new style of the McLaren prototype is going to follow the lead of Woking’s newly launched GT. However, its lowered suspension and shorter overhangs mean that it will give a greater emphasis on overall performance. Let’s look more into what the new McLaren Sports Series Hybrid has to offer!

A mesmerizing new design

Other noticeable features of this vehicle are its gaping front air intake and enormous rear diffuser. Brand-new elliptical brake lights also seem to sit at the back of a mesh grille, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet if this feature will be kept until mass production. The exhaust outlets are placed at the center, which is the same as that of the Super Series flagship, 720S.

Not economical

Mike Flewitt, the McLaren boss, commented on the new pictures of the car that surfaced on the internet and said that the company is looking forward to developing more electrified car models. He said that the company is experienced in making hybrid systems because of how they built P1, P1 GTR, and Speedtail.

He further spoke on the matter and said that the new goal of their company is to make cars that are more economical and provide a thrilling experience as you drive them. It is clear that the motto of McLaren is all about building the best driving cars, and they saw that opportunity in making hybrid vehicles.

A significant weight loss in the new rides

News is that the company will also replace some of the features that were present in the vehicle before. The new series will come with a charging port, which will make the vehicle plug-in a hybrid. The company will not include the recuperative hybrid system, which was initially present in the P1. The new update will put both petrol and electric power through the rear wheels.

It is a fact that it will not be possible for the company to balance the weight of the new car with the older models. Still, the company is looking forward to solving the issue. Flewitt said that he always desired to make a hybrid car that carries the same weight as the outward-bound car.

According to the McLaren boss, they won’t be able to hit the mark, but they will work in between 30-40 kg. While considering that P1 weighed 140kg, the company managed to reduce a significant amount of weight. Flewitt has already driven a prototype of the car, and he vows that it is very compelling. Well, they wouldn’t be selling it to the public if it wasn’t going to be.
