McLaren Automotive has confirmed that it will be present at the Paris Motor Show, and with a new car. This makes us very excited indeed, because rumours of the F1 successor have been making the rounds since early this year, and McLaren has said that this car will be king of the supercar hill when it launches. Considering that the F1 became the fastest production car by accident (and not with a focus on it being the fastest production car) we're quite inclined to believe that claim now that there is a clear focus on it.
The F1 successor is rumoured to have a 800bhp twin-turbo V8 coupled with a 200bhp KERS system, which should make it one of the quickest cars money can buy. Around a track, we don't doubt that the new McLaren will be quicker than the likes of the Veyron. However, will it be able to lay claim to "fastest production car" like its predecessor did? We certainly hope so.
