McLaren has revealed images of a stunning concept Formula 1 car of the future that it believes would take the sport into a new technological era.
The car features advanced venturi tunnels underneath to deliver ground effect, as well as full active aero – with moveable wings that flip up for corners but go flat on the straights.
It is powered by an all-eletric hybrid motor – which can be boosted by induction loops at the track – and features innovation like tyre wear monitoring systems and electronic branding.
“We have combined a number of F1’s key ingredients – speed, excitement and performance, with the sport’s emerging narratives - such as enclosed cockpits to enhance driver safety, and hybrid power technologies."
He added: “Formula 1 is the ultimate gladiatorial sport, and the future we envisage will be a high tech, high performance showcase that excites fans like no other sport.”
