McLaren hypercar caught on tape

Ever since the McLaren F1 in 1992, the world has been waiting for its successor. Finally, in 2011, it will arrive in the form of the MP4-12C - and McLaren has taken a not-so-subtle swipe at Ferrari.

McLaren chief test driver, Chris Goodwin, claims that the newcomer is "one of the fastest road cars that you can possibly get your hands on," as well as being "awesome on the race track." Its key competitor is the new Ferrari 458 Italia.

The comments come in a video showing the later stages of the car's development. It's the second in a series of videos McLaren will release right up until the car's on-sale date.

The short film shows lightly disguised test cars, called 'Experimental Prototype' vehicles, being put through their paces at the IDIADA proving ground in Spain. The McLaren, which is powered by a 3.8-litre V8 engine boasting 600bhp, has no official performance figures attached to it yet.

However, based on the testing phase shown in the video, McLaren claims its "aspirations to out-perform its competitors appear well-founded." The supercar isn't dead just yet.

Full performance details will be released on March 18th at a press conference at McLaren's headquarters. We'll be there.
