McLaren P15 drip feed continues


McLaren continues to build the hype around its new P15 hypercar, today drip feeding us yet another dark and mysterious image.


It's obviously the left rear brake light, with a bit of extreme looking aero above it, some honeycomb below, and a slight Bugatti Chiron vibe about the whole thing. Interestingly it fits in rather nicely alongside the first teaser image of the tri-tip exhaust which we received last month, and some very rudimentary Photoshop skills give a greater hint at what to expect from the rear of McLaren's new Ultimate Series flagship.

There are still no specs - obvs - but we do know it'll be the most "track-concentrated" McLaren ever. If its performance is to be equally as superior to the 720S as the P1's was to the 650, then there's one hell of a car in store. Don't hold your breath though; should the current puzzle piece reveal continue at its current rate, we won't see the whole thing until sometime in 2024...

    Do the upward pointing exhausts give additional downforce?

    Unless the exhaust gas is pointed at a wing/diffuser of some sort, then no not really

    Do manufacturers teasers really have any effect on buyers or marketing generally?

    Those who want a Macca P15 will already have seen the prototypes in a studio/clinic, their deposits will have been paid and orders confirmed. Us lowly, poor, watchers from the side, will glean nothing from a spurious shot of a bit of light and a tailpipe.

    This isn't the Victorian ages where a photo of a part of a lady's ankle gets blokes (or interested others) rampant!

    What's a McLaren 620?

    World public premier expected to be Geneva 2018, although some lucky purchasers will be seeing it at the McLaren Christmas bash

    I'm sure they only do these for the benefit of the buyers or future buyers of 'cooking' McLarens; as you say all these particular cars are probably sold may times over.
