McLaren Automotive to grow dealer network and launch 18 cars by 2025

All told, McLaren has big expectations on the sales front, as well, with the new line-up aimed at boosting annual global sales to 6,000 vehicles, or about 75% more than current volume. This updated version adds a number of new milestones, however.

What's more important is the fact that the British builder committed to turning the entire range of new sportscars and supercars into hybrids by the same year.

The 18 new cars will be entirely new models and derivatives, although McLaren didn't specify exact numbers for each.

Exactly what cars will be included is unclear at this stage. Although based on the 570S, McLaren claims almost 25 per cent of the parts used on the 600LT are either completely new or specially redeveloped for the new vehicle.

The original P1 may have been a hybrid, but it was no Prius.

Controversially, McLaren's move to hybrids could see the end to the V8 with a move to an electrified small-capacity V6 that the car-maker is already rumoured to be testing in 720S mules.

The new McLaren hybrids won't just augment gasoline power with electricity, though. A further 5.7 kg has been saved by not fitting any carpets, and of course, such unnecessary luxuries as air-con, satellite navigation and a sound system are also all absent.

The British manufacturer is also developing an all-electric hyper auto which has already been proclaimed as the fastest vehicle McLaren will have produced.

Furthermore, the Woking-based brand promised that it would introduce technologies created to "improve the owning experience", including the fitment of enhanced cyber protection and improved vehicle tracking devices, plus the implementation of over-the-air software updates.

A £50m investment has been made in developing and manufacturing the future of lightweighting technology with the soon to-open McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) in Rotherham. There'll be "enhanced cyber protection" too, reflecting the growing fears industry-wide about the safety of cars that are perpetually online. According to McLaren, the 600LT will also be the most performance-focused Sports Series model to date, and will even beat the higher-ranking 675LT when it comes to lap times at certain circuits.
