McLaren estate takes shape

Exclusive images show how the McLaren shooting brake estate could look when it arrives as early as 2014

McLaren is working on a top-secret shooting brake estate, Auto Express has learned – and we’ve produced these exclusive images to show how it could look.

The new model will be based on the MP4-12C and will be similar in concept to the Ferrari FF – although it won’t have the Ferrari’s £230,000 price tag. Instead, McLaren will position the car as a more practical alternative to range-topping Porsche 911s, with a price of around £150,000.

The two-seater will have more boot space than the MP4-12C, but will still offer the same incredible performance. That’s thanks to its lightweight carbon-fibre construction and 592bhp 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 – which will deliver 0-60mph in around three seconds and a top speed of 205mph.

For full details on this and the next McLaren F1, check out the latest issue of Auto Express, out 18 April 2012.
