We are looking forward to the new McLaren Sport Series. Liquidity problems combined with the pandemic have forced the postponement of the unveiling of it, but that does not prevent the manufacturer from revealing us crisp details on this series and its other future creations. McLaren has released an image of its all-new carbon-fiber platform, and the automaker says this new structure will be the basis of all hybrid supercars it produces from 2021.
This carbon fiber chassis, or cradle, has yet to be named. The outgoing gear was called "MonoCell", and it was introduced for 12C a long time ago. Times are changing, of course, which is why the British automaker has developed this new chassis "specifically to accommodate the new hybrid powertrains". This creation comes straight out of McLaren's Composites Technology Center, located some 200 kilometers from its production facility in Woking, England.
“This new ultralight carbon fiber chassis offers greater structural integrity with a higher level of quality than ever before. Our new Composites Technology Center is recognized as a global center of excellence in the science and manufacturing of composites, ”said Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren.
