Future McLaren designs exhibited

This had flashed up on our radar screen late last month and we were hoping McLaren would release more details. They did and our bestest-bud from Fast-Autos.net, Drew, alerted us to a news page on McLaren's website announcing the winners of their future design contest.

The interpretations of what a not-so-distant McLaren may look like were penned and rendered in 1:4-scale by students at the Institute of Design in Turin, Italy. The undergraduates were assigned the task of designing a vehicle that would reach 200 MPH and carry over the McLaren tradition of an F1 car for the road.

Three finalists were selected from the 14 total entrants and a panel of judges, including the main-man himself, Anthony Sheriff, awarded first place to the 'M Eleven B' (pictured). A host of adjectives wouldn't do the design justice, so we'll just call it 'the sex' and say that it certainly looks ready to blow past the double-century mark.

The runners up are pictured along with the chosen design in full, renderlicious glory after the jump, and be sure to check out McLaren's site for the unabridged details.
