Spy Photos: McLaren's New Supercar Successor to the SLR

McLaren's New Supercar Successor to the SLR

McLaren's elusive P11 has moved from rumor to reality with these photos of the first prototype, shot during cold-weather testing in Sweden by Brenda Priddy's spy shooter network. Priddy says the P11 is tentatively scheduled for an introduction later this year, with production beginning in 2010, and is McLaren's replacement for the SLR.

Priddy says the heavily camouflaged silhouette resembles the renderings that have leaked over the past few months. Specs are sketchy, but recent speculation calls for the lightweight supercar to be powered by a Mercedes-Benz-sourced V8 putting out 550 hp, possibly mated to an F1-style sequential transmission.
