'It's as though we stuck a tube inside and sucked all the air out – a dramatic, honest shape, but also a very beautiful one'
McLaren Design Director, Frank Stephenson explains some of the inspiration for the functional yet beautiful design of the McLaren P1™.
'The engineering priority was always unmatched aerodynamic performance. My role as a designer was to make it look dramatic and beautiful. I wanted it to look like a purposeful racer with that low body, long rear deck and open-mesh rear styling to put the mechanicals on view and help cooling. Plus there's the most aggressive rear diffuser ever seen on a road car. Like everything on the McLaren P1™, it's there for a good reason.
'I wanted to take out as much visual weight as possible, to have a car that was really lean; a car with absolutely no fat between the mechanicals and the skin. I It was all part of the engineering and design approach to fanatically take out weight.
'Visibility is vital for a car like this, which is why we've pushed to giving it more of a canopy, to have glass all around you – it's like a cockpit and that's deliberate.'
