McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt announces a new member of the McLaren Ultimate Series family: an open-cockpit roadster
McLaren’s mission to create the ultimate driving machines achieves a new milestone as we reveal a roadster that offers our purest driving experience yet.
Our CEO Mike Flewitt today unveiled this design rendering, which gives a first glimpse of the lightest McLaren yet, set to make its debut in 2020.
Although it joins the Ultimate Series, the as yet unnamed new model will be clearly distinct from its siblings, the McLaren Senna and Speedtail. While the Senna is the ultimate road-legal track car and the three-seater Speedtail is a master of high-speed aerodynamic efficiency, the roadster will offer an unparalleled connection between the driver and their environment.
Strictly limited to 399 examples, the two-seater will appeal to all the senses, with its smooth flowing lines and low-profile Dihedral doors. ‘It will take road-focused driving pleasure to new levels,’ says Mike Flewitt.
Being built around a bespoke version of our trademark carbon fibre chassis will help the newcomer achieve the lowest kerbweight of any McLaren road car, while scintillating performance is guaranteed by the same twin-turbo V8 engine featured in the McLaren Senna.
