The chief officials at Mclaren has vouchsafed the information that the company's new supercar, codenamed as P15, is in its initial development phase. However, the P15 doesn't seems to be a reality in the near future but new model will be an other example of McLaren's excellent engineering. Being a far future project, the company is not surefooted about the use of technology and design for the model, but P15 will definitely be basic to the company's core construction, which is the maximize use of carbon fiber for chassis and body shell.
The McLaren P15 is likely to get powered by the extensively revised version of 3.8-litre twin turbocharged engine derived from MP4-12C. Interestingly, McLaren developing an another supercar P13 to position against the Porsche 911 Turbo, supposed to come in spyder and a boosted performance version to rival the more mighty 911 GT3. McLaren will position the P15 between 12C and the P1 with an expected price tag of 400000 Euros, while the P13 is expected to reach the McLaren outlets at 120000 Euros. The company is planning to roll-out 2000-2500 units of P13 in a year, further its production starts, which will later, around the end of this decade, get join by the P15.
The British automaker has been indulged in making some really astounding road legal cars since 1989 and to prove their potential, they have painstakingly built a few cars like Mclaren F1, MP4-12C and the technologically efficient yet go ballistic P1. The P1 is one of the fastest cars in the world that hits standstill to 100 km/hr in just 2.8 seconds! The other title is the world's fastest track car in production for which the P1 is famous across the globe. The synchronization of the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) with conventional petrol engine has given a splendid character to the P1. Amazingly, McLaren will manufacture only 350 examples of the P1.
