McLaren Automotive has released additional images of its next generation ultimate supercar, the McLaren P1. The release of the images is part of the carmaker’s buildup to the launch of the new McLaren Manama showroom over the 2013 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix program. During its Middle East regional debut in Bahrain, the McLaren P1 paid an exclusive visit to the Bahrain International Circuit, where the images were taken.

The carmaker eyes McLaren P1 to re-write the rules for the dynamic performance of road-going sports cars by offering an unmatched Formula 1-derived driving experience.
The goal of the next generation ultimate supercar is be the most dynamically capable and exciting performance car in the world. The selected images taken at the Bahrain International Circuit highlights the car’s ability in action, as it displayed levels of active aerodynamics, downforce and performance delivery that have never been experienced on the road.
Making things more exciting is the planned arrival of another McLaren 'supercar', the McLaren MP4-25, which was the first McLaren piloted by the 2009 FIA Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button in his debut season for the team in 2010.
