After two years of rumors and spy photos, the first official photos of the new Ultimate Series model arrive the McLaren Saber (identification code BC-03 ). This is a new hypercar built by the MSO (McLaren Special Operations) division which will have a limited edition. The reference market will be exclusively that of the United States.
The most powerful
From what we learn from rumors close to the British brand, the new McLaren Saber will be the Mclaren “ most powerful non-hybrid two-seater ever “. The new Woking hypercar will be driven by a twin-turbo V8 with 824 hp and 800 Nm of torque. Performance is impressive with a top speed of 351 km / h “only” 1 km / h more than the McLaren P1.
Freedom of realization
The marketing only to the United States allowed a freer development of the hypercar that does not follow the strict global regulations. The images come directly from one of the Mclaren dealers in Beverly Hills as the same wealthy buyers actively participated in the creation and customization of their models, managing to preview the forklifts.
If the look of the McLaren Saber looks more like a spaceship or racing car ready for Le Mans we let you decide. Of course, the name “saber” already makes us understand the intentions of the designers with the super sports silhouette. Aerodynamics are well sculpted on the car body which appears to be a single element. Functional aerodynamics has always been a great challenge for McLaren and with the Saber reaches a further confirmation of excellence.
Interior and price
The butterfly wing door opening allows us to poke around the passenger compartment which is covered in two-tone black / red Alcantara with carbon fiber inserts and a floating console. The price? As exclusive as the car: between 2.5 and 3 million dollars for production of only 15 units in the world, obviously all already sold.
