Mark your calendars, because McLaren has scheduled the upcoming Paris Motor Show as the place it will reveal its plans for the future, which the automaker has teased in an image showing the silhouette of a car that we’re hoping could be an F1 successor.
While it hasn’t been confirmed McLaren is planning such a car, it would be a great addition to the carbon-fiber-clad MP4-12C. The McLaren supercar has a mid-mounted twin-turbo V-8 engine making 616 horsepower in 2013 models. The 2012 model, which puts out 592 hp, was featured in our Best Driver’s Car competition, and nipped the Lamborghini Aventador’s heels in the World’s Greatest Drag Race 2. While the $241,800 car placed mid-pack in our 2012 Best Driver’s Car competition, a McLaren F1 successor could challenge the top contenders for the crown in a few years.
While it’s unclear at this point what these flowing lines form, we expect to get more information on the mystery car over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for updates on the McLaren and other Paris Motor Show debuts.
