McLaren to lead off busy Formula 1 launch period with MP4-28 reveal

McLaren will become the second Formula 1 team to reveal its 2013 car when the MP4-28 is launched tomorrow.

After Lotus##Q##s unveiling on Monday, McLaren kicks off a rapid-fire sequence of launches, with Ferrari and Force India holding their events on Friday, Sauber on Saturday, Red Bull on Sunday and Mercedes and Scuderia Toro Rosso on Monday.

The launch will take place at the MTC in Woking on Thursday at 11am, and will be streamed live on McLaren##Q##s YouTube channel.

Last year##Q##s MP4-27 featured a significantly lower nose than rival designs and proved formidable in the opening rounds, carrying McLaren into an early lead in the constructors##Q## fight.

The design was altered from the Spanish Grand Prix however, with McLaren raising the nose as high as it could without changing its chassis to maximise airflow underneath the chassis.

It could be a logical move for this year##Q##s car to adopt the step nose design in order to further increase the airflow available for downforce generation on the underside of the car.

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
