Woking, Surrey - McLaren has confirmed that its next Track22 model will a track-focused extension of its flagship Ultimate series, so new that it doesn’t even have a code-name yet.
Previous members of the Utimate series include the P1 and P1 GTR, but this is Intended to be the most extreme, performance-concentrated road car yet from the Woking stable.
McLaren says it will be street-legal (just!) but daily usability has been sacrificed in favour of intense driver response on track - which is adspeak for rock-hard suspension, ultra-direct go-kart steering, the barest minimum of driver aids and the throttle response of a striking cobra.
Even the styling is described as ‘brutal’, a pure expression of the Woking ‘form follows function’ styling philosophy. More details, including the car’s name, have been promised by the end of the year.
