You're looking at the shadowy reveal of the latest McLaren Ultimate Series model, a two-seater roadster with a carbon-fibre construction so featherweight that Woking says it is the lightest thing it has ever produced. With just 399 examples to be built for the global market, and at an asking price of between £750,000 and £2.1 million, this is the latest in a series which includes the P1, the Senna and the Speedtail. Indeed, its rough pricing comes from the prices of the aforementioned Senna and Speedtail respectively, with the model due to be unveiled in full at the Pebble Beach Concours event. Mike Flewitt, McLaren's CEO, said: "At McLaren Automotive, we are consistently pushing the boundaries to deliver the purest and most engaging driving experience, whether for the road or track. Our two current ultimate series cars, the Senna and Speedtail, offer unique and distinct driving experiences. Now this new addition to the Ultimate Series, an open-cockpit roadster, will take road-focused driving pleasure to new levels." The new Ultimate Series McLaren is scheduled to hit the market in late 2020.
