Spotted: McLaren F1 "replacement"

Yet more spyshot pictures have been published online of another hyper-car of the next generation, but this time it is the McLaren F1's replacement. The car is expected to have somewhere in the region of 900bhp if it is to keep up with its rivals, such as the "F70" and the Bugatti Veyron.

The car is currently known as the P12 and is based on an updated version of the 12C's carbon fiber chassis and the engine will implement the same system used on F1 cars, KERS, the Ferrari F70 will also feature this. Sources are saying the car may be revealed at Geneva motor show next year, also the same as the F70, which will induce some form of rivalry right from the word go between Ferrari and McLaren. 

As you can see in the pictures below the car is heavily disguised, so there is clearly something McLaren don't want to let people in on, but the one thing that does stand out is the huge, centre-exit exhaust, and in typical modern McLaren fashion, it is placed higher up the car like the ones on the MP4-12C.
