McLaren Has Sort Of Revealed Its 'P14' 650S Successor

With the Monocage II, the new McLaren Series also gets a wider cabin entrance and lower sill providing excellent all-round visibility.

British supercar maker McLaren has released initial information about its latest model, which is to replace the 650S.

In fact it was only 2011 when the first McLaren MP4-12C - the beginning of the Super Series - was launched.

McLaren has announced that it will introduce an all-new supercar at this year's Geneva Motor Show.

The limited edition McLaren 675LT Coupe and 675LT Spider debuted in 2015.

While there is still plenty of details to come, McLaren has given up specs on the new lightweight carbon fiber monocoque that will serve as the basis for the entire new Super Series lineup. On the access score, note the roof cutouts which indicate the all-new McLaren will run dihedral doors like the revered McLaren F1 that launched its road-car division back in 1992.

"Super Series is the core of the McLaren business and personifies the blend of extreme performance, crafted luxury and unparalleled driver involvement that is the McLaren heartland", explained McLaren Automotive CEO, Mike Flewitt. The new chassis also has a lower center of gravity, McLaren says, which should improve handling.

The company also revealed that they will offer a "Visible Monocage" option to customers who wish to showcase the carbon chassis, exposing the material on the inside area of the A-pillar.

All will be revealed in just over two months, when the auto has its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show on March 7.

It will be the first of the fifteen new cars cited in the company's Track22 Business Plan for all-new models which will be produced at its Woking plant in Surrey by 2022.

The previous Monocage featured in the P1 hypercar, whereas lesser models from the Super Series and Sports Series families used the fully open carbon and metal Monocell structure.
