“With the futuristic McLaren MP4-X concept racecar, we wanted to peer into the future and imagine the art of the possible,” said John Allert, Group Brand Director, McLaren Technology Group.
“We have combined a number of F1’s key ingredients – speed, excitement and performance, with the sport’s emerging narratives – such as enclosed cockpits to enhance driver safety, and hybrid power technologies.”
“Formula 1 is the ultimate gladiatorial sport, and the future we envisage will be a high tech, high performance showcase that excites fans like no other sport.”
It looks visually striking, but it is beneath the skin where the changes are most apparent.
MP4-X is designed to use alternative power sources; the chassis changes shape to adapt to different aerodynamic demands; and it can communicate in the event of a failure or a problem.
This is therefore McLaren Marketing’s unique conceptual take on motor racing’s future. Discover the MP4-X in all its glory in our interactive carousel, with exclusive insights into the future supplied by the technologists and designers at McLaren Applied Technologies.
