Artist Jon Sibal has created an amazing computer illustration of the future McLaren SLR Speedster that we saw on various different shy shots. While the Speedster looks very similar to the current SLR, Jon points out that the only parts that these two cars share are the headlights. Almost all body panels have been redesigned, including the whole side panel, fenders and doors. The hood was also redesigned to tame the slope leading to the high beams which was originally connected to the A pillar.
To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about the speedster when I saw it in the spy shots, but after looking at Jon’s illustration, I have a totally positive feeling now, let’s just hope the final design will look close to his illustration.
