We know that McLaren is working on a successor to its F1 supercar, but now we’re getting word that McLaren is tooling away on another vehicle behind the scenes.
According to AutoExpress, the new McLaren will be a competitor to the Ferrari FF, meaning it will have shooting brake styling and more trunk space than the traditional supercar . Rumors of a lower price tag (than the Ferrari) are also reported, with the car likely slotting in as a close competitor to the high end Porsche 911.
Apparently the vehicle will borrow the platform and engine from the MP4-12C, which means a 592bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8, that should hit 60 mph in around three seconds.
The new McLaren could arrive as early as 2014.
