The company, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, confirmed that the successor to the P1 hypercar will be revealed before 2025. It will be reborn as the brand’s flagship. Company boss Mike Flewitt said the Car will be “as shocking or surprising as the P1 was” and added that it would take performance to another level and be the best driver’s car on track and on road.
Flewitt confirmed that there are three powertrains that the company is looking at. And when asked if it would be McLaren’s first fully electric model, he said, “I’m sceptical that electric vehicle technology will be where it needs to be by then.” However, he did not rule out the possibility.
McLaren confirmed in 2016 that it was running an electric vehicle for evaluation purposes. He also confirmed that the new model will not be called P1, and nor will it be called the P2.
