McLaren X-1 Concept

British automotive manufacturer McLaren Automotive has unveiled the new X-1 concept sports car at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance event in the US.

The  model features futuristic styling with a number of retro-inspired touches. Highlights include carbon fiber body panels, unique head- and taillights, custom wheels, solid aluminum trim and covered rear wheels.

The interior carries over from the MP4-12C, but has been equipped with Harissa Red Nappa leather upholstery, nickel-coated aluminum switchgear and titanium-weave carbon fiber trim.

The sports concept is based on the carmaker’s 12C and is expected to be powered by a 3.8litre V8 twin turbo engine mated to a 7 Speed SSG dual-clutch transmission, which allows the concept to generate 616hp output and 600Nm torque.
