McLaren's new supercar will be called the MP4-12C.
The car, which as previously known by its codename, P11, will be unveiled this Wednesday, but company boss Ron Dennis revealed the name in an interview with the Sunday Times newspaper.
Dennis also outlined McLaren's plans to build three new models over the next six years, eventually churning out 4000 cars a year.
“We’re building more than one car; we’re building a brand,” he said.
The McLaren MP4-12C name that echoes the company’s history in Formula One racing, according to Dennis.
Dennis also revealed some technical details of the car, stressing that it was a supercar that could be used everyday. To this end, it has self-adjusting suspension that varies the damper settings according to conditions. Power comes from a V8 engine, controlled via a seven-speed gearbox.
Inside, the sat-nav system has a wi-fi connection, allowing owners to download maps and music to the car’s onboard computer, while a floating centre console similar to the one found in some Volvos is reported to give the interior a futuristic feel.
