Upcoming McLaren supercar undergoes high-speed test work

These are the latest pictures of McLaren’s new supercar, codenamed McLaren P11, testing at the Nurburgring.

The mid-engined supercar will go on sale in 2011. McLaren plans to see around 1000 cars a year, with the addition of further P11 variants, as well as another new model, bringing annual output up to around 4000 cars by 2015.

The P11 is a similar size to a Ferrari F430. Some sources say that P11 will be powered by a Mercedes V8 re-worked by Mahle in the UK.

Antony Sheriff, managing director of McLaren Automotive, has previously revealed the car "is not manufactured like any supercar you have seen." He also says the cars will be "more exclusive and priced at a premium" compared to rivals.

Prices will kick off from 100,000 euros (£88,000) and McLaren says it wants three per cent of the global supercar market, which it calculates as around 130,000 units per year.

McLaren is currently building up a global dealer and distribution network to sell the new models.

The supercars will be built by a new, independent, company called McLaren Automotive, which will be led by Ron Dennis, who has stepped down from heading up the F1 team.
