McLaren Automotive has unveiled the new X-1 concept sports car. The unveiling caused quite a stir at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event, and rightly so.
The model features futuristic styling with a number of retro-inspired touches. Highlights include carbon fibre body panels, unique head- and taillights, custom wheels, solid aluminium trim and covered rear wheels.
The interior carries over from the MP4-12C, but has been equipped with Harissa Red Nappa leather upholstery, nickel-coated aluminium switchgear and titanium-weave carbon fibre trim.
The sports concept is based on the carmaker’s 12C and is expected to be powered by a 3.8litre V8 twin turbo engine mated to a 7 Speed SSG dual-clutch transmission, which allows the concept to generate 616hp output and 600Nm torque.
