McLaren F1 successor to get V8 hybrid image

The successor of the iconic McLaren F1 is expected to get a similar engine to the one used on the MP4-12C, but it will be mated to a hybrid powertrain.

The fact that McLaren is currently working on a direct successor of the iconic F1 isn’t a surprise for anyone but it seems that the supercar will be postponed. While it should have been presented by now according to initial rumors, the successor of the McLaren F1 is getting into our news once more, this time with a new rumor which says that the model will get a similar engine of the one used on the MP4-12C, but this will be mated to a hybrid powertrain.

According to the guys at telegraaf.nl, the successor of the McLaren F1 will be powered by a smaller V8 twin-turbo engine, which is similar to the one used on the MP4-12C supercar. The unit will be helped by an electric motor which should offer, besides the low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, more torque and an improved performance. The McLaren F1’s successor is expected to get a limited production and the price tag for each unit will be set at around 750,000 euros. Additional details are limited.
