McLaren’s Ferrari fighter set for Geneva debut

A new design for the dihedral doors will be found on this vehicle, housing two separate air ducts.McLaren will provide full specification and pricing of its second-generation Super Series at the reveal in March.The car’s cooling efficiency has also been improved by 15%, with increased airflow to the radiators through a new design of dihedral door.Now it seems they will be carried to the next generation of the Super Series, which has been allegedly captured in a poor quality video during what looks like a customer preview event.”(The rear wing) moves upwards and increases in angle to optimise aerodynamic efficiency and also deploys to its most extreme angle as an airbrake in less than half a second, optimising balance when braking from speed”, McLaren says. Today, McLaren released its first official teaser photo-a glimpse of the car’s wing.McLaren’s Super Series family will soon be in the process of renewal, with the 650S earmarked as the first member to be replaced.Most likely this is a closed event for certain lucky customers who get a preview ahead of the model’s introduction during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.”The second-generation McLaren Super Series will be as aerodynamically impressive as it is visually handsome”, commented Mark Vinnels, Executive Director – Product Development, McLaren Automotive.McLaren also claims the structure enables a lower centre of gravity “further sharpening the dynamic performance” of the Super Series model.Reportedly codenamed P14, the carbon-fibre coupe is said to be twice as aerodynamically efficient as the 650S, using lessons learned from the McLaren P1 hypercar as well as its Bathurst 12 Hour-winning GT3 program.Even the doors count as aerodynamic devices, with a new duct that draws air out of the front wheel wells to improve downforce.
