McLaren announced a new Ultimate Series model, a roadster, that will soon be joining its lineup, at a presentation during the Monterey Car Week.
The McLaren Automotive Track25 business plan is no joke. The British manufacturer just announced its fifth new car under the plan. This new Ultimate Series model will join the ranks in late 2020.
The unnamed model will be limited to 399 copies worldwide and will be priced between the Senna ($1.2 million) and the Speedtail ($3.4 million) said McLaren. It’s going to be a roadster that will be “focused on the exhilaration of pure, open-top driving.”
“At McLaren Automotive we are consistently pushing the boundaries to deliver the purest and most engaging driving experience whether for the road or track. Our two current ultimate series cars, the Senna and Speedtail, offer unique and distinct driving experiences. Now this new addition to the Ultimate Series, an open-cockpit roadster, will take road-focused driving pleasure to new levels,” said Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive.
This all-new roadster will be powered by a variant of the twin-turbocharged V8 engine currently found in the McLaren Senna. It will also be the lightest car ever produced by the Woking manufacturer, thanks to McLaren’s trademark carbon fibre construction.
McLaren’s Ultimate Series is their top range and includes the P1, the Senna and the soon-to-launch Speedtail.
