McLaren P14 Monocage II revealed ahead of Geneva debut

SUPERCAR maker McLaren Automotive is to showcase its second-generation Super Series luxury flying machine at the Geneva Motor Show in March. This new one helps lower the new car's weight to a claimed 2829 pounds, which McLaren said is 40 pounds lighter than a similarly equipped 650S.

Full details of the all-new, second-generation Super Series models will be announced at Geneva in March, along with further images, pricing and specification information.

The automaker added that the Monocage II can be specified with "Visible Monocage" option if clients want to show off the carbon-fiber construction chassis.

In fact it was only 2011 when the first McLaren MP4-12C - the beginning of the Super Series - was launched. The Woking-based brand has associated the images of the carbon fiber Monocage II body structure with a few spicy details - such as the fact that it will lose some weight and arrive with higher strength and rigidity. This was then followed by the introduction of the 650S Coupe and 650S Spider in 2014.

The limited edition McLaren 675LT Coupe and 675LT Spider debuted in 2015. On the access score, note the roof cutouts which indicate the all-new McLaren will run dihedral doors like the revered McLaren F1 that launched its road-car division back in 1992.

All will be revealed in just over two months, when the vehicle has its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show on March 7.

In the powertrain department, rumors talk about the Ricardo-supplied twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 heart of all the modern-era Maccas making room for a new, 4.0-liter unit. No, really! It's just that McLaren has only revealed the new carbonfibre Monocage II that'll be at the core of the auto, as a sort of engineering porn teaser. It is also the first of a confirmed lineup of 15 new cars coming in the near future, as per McLaren's "Track22" business plan.
