What's all this about?

There's another new McLaren on the way. We're going to get to see it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, where it will make its first-ever ascent of the Sussex venue's Hill Climb route. And, for now, all McLaren wants you to see are its 'pair of formidable top-exit exhausts'.

Ah, so it's not going to be a Sports Series car, then?

Actually, it probably is, based on the 570S. Details, at this stage, are scant, but McLaren does deign to say the Goodwood-bound motor will benefit from 'increased power, minimised weight, optimised aerodynamics and enhanced driver engagement'. And it promises to deliver 'track-focused dynamics'.

Should be expensive, then?

Yes, and hard to get hold of. McLaren indicates it will be built in very limited numbers, like the Senna. But it is not the BP23 hypercar that has been in the running for a while now. The Goodwood car, though, is the fifth vehicle to be launched under the brand's Track22 product plan.

What next?

Well, details and images of the newcomer, along with its name, will be released on June 28 at 1pm. Then it does the Goodwood festival on Thursday, July 12. Until then, have a slightly longer view of some more of its rear end by heading to and watching a teaser video.
