The typical pipeline for a vehicle, standard or luxury, takes 3-4 years of tweaking before it hits actual production.

Next-Gen McLaren Offerings at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show


McLaren kicked things up a notch for the Geneva Motor Show this year, touting both the McLaren 650S and 650S spider. The brand has been busy touting the P1 hybrid, which ushers in the new, while the others are improvements upon their predecessors.

McLaren took advantage of the exposure of the 2014 Geneva Motor Show to display their latest models: The next-gen McLaren 650S cars. With the McLaren P1 superhybrid and the new siblings, the future looks bright for the brand.

The frontrunner, the McLaren P1, is poised to compete with the next generation of high-end hybrid supercars like the LaFerrari, Lamborghini Veneno and Porsche 918 spyder. The P1 emerged in production form last year and features a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine with dry sump lubrication. That engine produces 727 horses on its own, but that is where things get awesome. She boasts an electric motor that adds another 176 horses to the stable. The end result is a 903 horsepower-drooling hybrid hyberbeast capable of demolishing the 0-60 mile per hour sprint in 2.8 seconds. read more
