McLaren Sabre hybrid spied, could be brand's most powerful car yet

A prototype believed to be the forthcoming McLaren Sabre has been photographed in dazzle camouflage at a dealership in California. Released by spy.shots on Instagram, the car’s aesthetic is defined by long and deep side scoops, a board-mounted rear wing, a large front splitter, and McLaren's traditional dihedral doors. It's understood the Sabre is based on the Senna platform, and was inspired by the Ultimate Vision GT car from the Gran Turismo video games.
