McLaren F1 Supercar Teased Ahead of Paris Debut



As automotive teases go, the wait for the next is about as pulse quickening and agonizing as they get. The British racing team and sports car manufacturer recently teased us with a single image of lights dancing over the shape of its upcoming supercar, the successor to the company's original three-passenger and BMW V12-powered F1 model. With a top speed of 240-mph, the McLaren F1 held the title of `world's fastest production car' until the Bugatti Veyron claimed the title roughly a decade later.

Check out the teaser video on McLaren's official YouTube channel and be prepared to hit the `pause' button repeatedly. The shape is relatively obscured except for a couple flashes when the body is almost entirely visible, before quickly fading away into a light show. The nose looks similar to the current McLaren MP4-12C coupe, but we'll know all the details once the McLaren F1 debuts on September 27 during the press preview.

The wait isn't going to be easy.
