McLaren’s new Super Series is pulling out all the stops

With two weeks until curtain up on the Geneva Motor Show, McLaren has teased out a few more details about the first product in its all-new Super Series.

Benefitting from standard carbon-ceramic brakes, the new car will be able to hit 200km/h (124mph in old money) in 7.8 seconds, and come to a dead stop 4.6 seconds later. This means it will pull up six metres sooner than the outgoing 650s, and almost as early as the flagship P1 hypercar.

McLaren is confident its new range, with the much vaunted all-carbon monocell at its heart, will offer an exceptional blend of what it calls ‘extreme performance and driving sophistication unmatched in the supercar segment.’

Who are we to argue? Roll on the 7th of March…
