McLaren F1 Successor

There have been rumors of a successor to the legendary McLaren F1. It's supposed to be a contender to the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo, and the new Audi R8 V10. There was a photo of the car ina some magazine, which was most likely a rendering, but after seeing recent spy shots, I'm not so sure...



Spy Shot


Rendering

VERY similar.

That tends to happen. The Gallardo looks like the F430, because Lamborghini wanted to go up against the F430. Audi owns Lamborghini and so the R8 is just a re-skinned Gallardo.

i hope that isnt what it looks like, its a shame they wont build another car like the F1....some of the models were so loud inside that the car came with headsets like small airplanes so the people in the cabin could talk.

Looks pretty good to me. I would say the styling is "safe" on their part, but it is still very nice.

Looks so boring compared to OG F1. That can't be a McLaren product. Bruze McLaren would be rolling in his grave if his name was on an Audi wannabe like that.
