McLaren Automotive intends to launch 18 new models between now and 2025 – and every one will be powered by a hybrid engine.

Unveiling the new McLaren 600LT at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, chief executive Mike Flewitt also announced the ‘Track 25’ business plan – a £1.2 billion update of the Track 22 plan revealed at the Geneva motor show in March 2016.

Taking McLaren to its 15th anniversary, the plan will see hybrid power plants employed across the entire range of both sports and supercars, while the brand will also develop a lighter, ‘super fast’ charging, high-power battery system for use in performance applications. This pack will be able to offer 30 minutes of full electric power on a race track.

Included in the 18 new cars or derivatives of existing models to be launched between now and 2025 is a successor to the McLaren P1 – this was unveiled five years ago and at the time was the first petrol-electric hybrid hypercar.

As a result of the new models, production at McLaren’s factory in Woking, UK, will increase by almost 75 per cent. The brand intends to produce 6,000 cars a year by 2025 and will also increase its current 86 dealer outlets globally to 100, targeting major new markets in Russia, India and central and eastern Europe.

McLaren also released further technical details of the 600LT at Goodwood, describing the car as the ‘lightest, most powerful and quickest road-legal Sports Series McLaren’.

Its mid-mounted engine producing 600hp and 600Nm, the car also makes use of a new design of carbon-fibre bodywork. The combination of front splitter, side sills, extended diffuser and fixed rear wing helps the car achieve 100kg of downforce at 155mph, while also contributing to a 100kg weight saving over the 570S coupe that it is evolved from.

As a result, the 600LT will match the Super Series McLaren 675LT to 62mph, crossing the mark in 2.9 seconds, and passing 124mph in 8.2 seconds.

All McLaren road cars are built in Britain.
