Dubbed as the High Performance Hybrid (HPH), the new model has already been revealed through official spy shots. But, here are patent images that give us a better idea of the shape of bodywork underneath the camouflage.

McLaren hasn’t released the exact technical details, but we do know that it is powered by a V6 hybrid. It will be interesting to see how it would compare with the Ferrari SF90 Stradale in terms of performance.
