AN AERODYNAMIC TOUR DE FORCE

The second-generation supercar’s sculptural design improves downforce by 50%.

 

It’s one thing to design a beautiful sports car but quite another to endow that car with unprecedented aerodynamic efficiency. That’s what has been achieved with the new Super Series – which generates an astonishing 50% more downforce than the 650S it replaces.

The new car, which will be unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show on March 7, takes aerodynamic efficiency to a whole new level, using a revolutionary new dihedral door structure in addition to the McLaren P1™-style diffuser technology and the active rear wing you can see in the picture above.

This relentless pursuit of aero performance will help make the new Super Series a ruthlessly effective point-to-point car on the road – and devastatingly quick on track.

A range of advanced aerodynamic technologies contributes to maximum generated downforce over 50% greater than that of the McLaren 650S and ensures truly outstanding levels of grip and stability,’ says Mark Vinnels, McLaren’s Executive Director – Product Development. ‘We have also markedly improved cooling efficiency, with a 15% gain overall and a particular focus on airflow to the engine’s high temperature radiators through a unique design of dihedral door.’

The door features two integrated air ducts within its structure, one forcing cooling air into the radiators, the other drawing air out of the front wheelarch to create downforce. Form and function, working together to raise the limits of what a supercar can achieve.
