Woking, Surrey - McLaren has released very few details of the second-generation Super Series, due to debut on 7 March at the Geneva motor show, but here’s a teaser video and two numbers that’ll get your attention.

According to McLaren Automotive chief test driver Chris Goodwin, Woking’s new flagship will launch off the line to 200km/h in 7.8 seconds and then brake back to a standstill in just 4.6 seconds and 117 metres - six metres less than the 650S.

Which actually says more about the P Zero Corsa tyres developed specifically for this car by Pirelli to provide maximum grip and driver feedback than it does about the car, as well as its brakes - which have been through the toughest development programme in the company’s history.

Carbon ceramic discs are standard, as are special callipers, engineered to be both lighter and stiffer than off-the-shelf items, while providing Brick Wall stopping power and accurate pedal feel; and it’s that last quality - as well as huge amounts of raw power that make this video possible.

Full details of the second-generation McLaren Super Series will be released at the Geneva presentation; as soon as we have them, so will you.
