    McLaren F1 successor to come in a year, dubbed P12, about $1 million

    So we should finally see a successor to the McLaren F1. The thing is, without Gordon Murray being involved, it will never be a true successor:

    The highly-anticipated McLaren F1 successor, dubbed the P12, will reportedly be unveiled in less than a year.

    According to CAR, the model will have dramatic styling with a double-bubble roof and a canopy-like greenhouse. As one source noted, it looks "like something out of iRobot."

    Contrary to previous reports, the magazine says power will be provided by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine with 800 hp (597 kW / 811 PS). It could be backed up by a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) that can give the supercar short bursts of added performance.

    The car is also slated to ride on a carbon fiber monocoque chassis which is similar to the one used on the MP4-12C. However, the P12 is expected to lighter and more advanced.
    Pricing will reportedly start at €750,000 ($962,700 / 623,921), so start raiding those hedge funds.

    KERS? lame.

    They should re-engineer S70/2 and put one in the car. IDK where i read, but someone involved in F1 project said they could even reach 800hp mark with S70/2.

    im confused... I thought the MP4-12C was the successor? Now what the $#@! is this? P12? Another alpha-numeric gay name.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
