Meet McLaren’s vision for the future of motorsport technolog
A concept car like no other, this is the McLaren MP4-X, a glimpse into the future of motorsport. Harnessing the most cutting-edge, avant-garde technological solutions that exist in the world, it is a race car that could exist in the distant future. How? Because the tech applied to the MP4-X is real, and while some of elements may be in the earliest stage of conception, McLaren Applied Technologies (the sister company to McLaren Automotive) is at the forefront of such developments.
‘With the futuristic McLaren MP4-X concept race car, we wanted to peer into the future and imagine the art of the possible,’ says John Allert, Group Brand Director at the McLaren Technology Group. ‘We have combined a number of the key ingredients from Formula 1™ – speed, excitement and performance – with the sport’s emerging narratives – such as enclosed cockpits to enhance driver safety, and hybrid power technologies. 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.’
The MP4-X is visually striking in its quest for ultimate aero performance, but it is beneath the skin where the changes are most apparent: it is designed to harness alternative power sources; the chassis changes shape to adapt to different aerodynamic demands; and it can communicate in the event of a failure or a problem.
Future Grand Prix cars like the McLaren MP4-X will spearhead the development of future road technologies, and the flow of innovative discoveries will also travel in the other direction, transferring lessons learnt on the road to the racetrack. Here we uncover the technology at the heart of the McLaren MP4-X…
