Spy Shots: McLaren P11 caught weathering the snow storm
Of course it's always easy to point out similarities to other current sports cars when something like this bows, but we see some F430 and Gallardo in the front 3/4, as well as some original McLaren F1, and even a bit of VW Nardo in the profile and rear. The Saleen S5S Raptor, Rossion Q1 and Lotus Esprit replacement also come to mind. None of which is necessarily a bad thing.
As opposed to the ultimate supercar -- the F1 -- the P11 is designed to go head-to-head with cars like the Ferrari F430. Weight is expected to be less than 3,000 pounds, with power coming from a 550-hp V8 built by famed engine builder Mahle. Convertible and racing variants are planned after the coupe's launch in 2010 and we can hardly wait.
