If you're going to the McLaren P14 preview event we'd love to chat with you.
The McLaren 720S, the rumored name of the successor to the 650S, will be unveiled in March at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. Forum members of McLaren Life are saying it will actually be shown off the month before at private gatherings organized for McLaren owners. The car reportedly has a code name of “P14,” and on a McLaren Life forum post members were discussing their P14 preview invitations. Two events are being held: one in New York on February 15th and 16th and one in Los Angeles on February 22nd and 23rd.
According to the posts in the thread, the invitations were handed out by dealers to customers who expressed interest in or left a deposit for the P14. No cameras are allowed into the events but we don’t doubt that someone will try and snag a shot of any visual reference material. The McLaren Life boards should be alive with posts about the 720S after the events wrap, so we’ll be sure to keep a close eye on them. In case you haven’t been paying attention, McLaren released a solitary image of the Monocage II, its new carbon fiber tub, a few weeks back. We’ve also seen spy shots of the new supercar looking incredibly sleek and sexy, although it's not much of a leap forward in the styling department.
The rumored power plant is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 making over 700 horsepower. A hybrid is said to be in the cards but a release date for it is unknown. We will be on the ground in Geneva come March and will have all the details on the 720S. In the meantime, if any one of you is attending the McLaren P14 event—or if you know someone who is—please drop us a line at email@example.com. We’d love for you to become our secret squirrel/inside man/inside woman.
