2021 McLaren hybrid supercar confirmed

McLaren has confirmed its next-generation supercar will be launched in the first half of 2021. The vehicle – which does not yet have an official model name – will be the first built on the brand’s MCLA carbon fibre lightweight architecture. A V6 hybrid powertrain differentiates the car from all of its McLaren on-road predecessors, which have used twin-turbo V8 motors in recent times. Performance figures for the hybrid V6 are yet to be announced.
