We all know makers like to give their cars code names in the development stage. But, occasionally these requirements conclusion up as the names for the finished solution that has been the case with the P1. Effectively, record may possibly repeat itself. Not too long ago we started viewing test mules for a forthcoming McLaren car which has been given the code title P14. This could become their formal title but at this time it still is unclear. The car is set to become the successor for the 650S that has been quite effective despite the fact it has been based on an older model. Allow see what we now to date about 2017 McLaren P14.
2017 McLaren P14 INTRODUCTION
The 2017 McLaren P14 is not likely to be an all new car like some studies suggested. Instead, it will be an evolution of McLaren’s carbon fiber frame which has existed ever since the MP4-12C. The 650S was basically a facelift of that model which included some under the skin changes as well. The P14 is pretty much the same point for the ongoing model but this time around around the changes are going to be a bit more clear. For starters, the look may entirely change with the only provided areas on the outside being the cabin and the glasshouse. The release date for the new car has been set for the next year’s Geneva Auto Show. Its price will probably improve to about $280,000 which would still be in line with their rivals.
THE ENGINE ON 2017 MCLAREN P14
Probably one of the most impressive areas of a super-car is its powertrain. The 2017 McLaren P14 is set to receive a 3.8 liter twin-turbocharged V8. While this may seem to be the same as before, this is not the case. The core may however be the same Ricardo-developed unit. But, this time around it appears that it will receive a lot more interest than before. Early rumors record between 660 and 700 horsepower and roughly the same amount of torque as before. The gearbox will probably remain the same 7 speed dual-clutch device but this time around it is going to be changed to provide faster equipment changes.
Although in essence it may seem like the same car, we are sure that McLaren is not likely to disappoint. The tweaks will probably allow them to go from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 3 seconds and up to a maximum prime pace of more than 205 MPH, enough to beat Ferrari at their very own game. Some recommended so it would outrun the 675LT but let us maybe not forget that the LT is a 500 units confined edition model which will be discontinued soon.
2017 MCLAREN P14 EXTERIOR DESIGN
While McLaren didn’t release anything about the car, it has been spied in several occasions to date and it looks amazing. Not too long ago the 2017 McLaren P14 has actually been observed without the camouflage which is very interesting. In the front it looks nothing like the older model or the P1. It uses a narrower set of headlights and angled DRL’s which are both installed in V-shaped recesses in the body. The end result is a a lot more aggressive-looking car than before. The back on the other hand is a much more similar to the P1 than we’d like. This is understandable but we expected something unique.
INSIDE THE CABIN OF NEW P14
This is the only unknown factor at this time but we are sure the P14 is not likely to disappoint. Like making use of their other models, the car is expected to access some design cues from the P1. We expect it to feature a fairly minimalist interior which will feature a large monitor on the center console. The closest car in design here may likely be the newly introduced 570S.
