    Wow wow wow wow wow.

    I have been unable to make a comment since first seeing this car because I have been so obsessively looking at every intricate detail in the photos.

    This car is sex on wheels, everytime I look at it the David Guetta and Akon tune just keeps going through my head “damn, you’s a sexy b***h!”

    This car has so many little intricate devices on it. It pushes the boat out so far, and to think this is launch spec! What will it have on it a Bahrain.

    Out of the two cars launched so far this one is going to dominate!

    My prediction before any other cars launch is the McLaren in current spec will be 1.5s faster than the Ferrari at the first test.

    The WDC is staying in the UK this year! Now I just have to figure out which one of my boys is bringing it home…. thats the only tight choice this season!

    i wouldnt want to touch that car! might loose a finger!

  3. My first impressions are positive. The new car looks original and unique and I especially like the new radically innovative looking shark fin. It looks less bulbus and more agressive than last years car. It does however come across as looking heavy in the middle but I suspect its because of the new shark fin. Again I’m curious to see how different and how far the new double diffuser design has been taken. I’m also really surprised how much longer the car is so as to incorporate the larger fuel tank.

    Naturally I hope this all translates well to the track and we see some good strong results…

  4. the new mclaren looks much bigger and much heavier than any of the other cars. i know the people in charge of designing it are among the best in the world and who am i to question them, but i have a nagging worry they’ve gone too far with enlarging it to accomodate the extra fuel. it seems logical that the smaller cars will be better in the bends. anyway, won’t know true dimensions till its out on track; studio photos can be misleading.

  5. the car is functional, its tail creates more downforce, you will notice that the inlet continues to the end right up to the tail of the car. Many people have said that it prevents downforce, quite opposite, infact it creates more with the vacuum of air moving to the very back of the car as there seems to be no outlet for the air itself at the back. From what I can see it provides the car with more stability.
    I should see no problem with this design legally considering last years double diffuser controversy.
    If this car does not pass FIA standards, so too Jenson Buttons car of 2009, which means he would not have taken victory & return his crown.
