McLaren previously revealed that its second-generation Super Series model will be a pretty fast car (obviously), capable of accelerating from a standstill to 200 km/h in just 7.8 seconds. So, what about doing the exact opposite, slowing down?

Well, the British carmaker has stated that its new supercar will decelerate from said speed to a dead stop in just 4.6 seconds and 117 metres. That is six metres less than the soon-to-be-obsolete 650S and 0.1 seconds slower than its flagship P1 (4.5 seconds).

McLaren says the “exceptional braking capabilities” of its new car required a lot of rigorous development to accomplish. As a result, stiffer and lighter brake calipers latch onto carbon-ceramic discs (standard fitment), delivering optimised brake pedal feel and modulation at the limit.

That’s not all as the Pirelli worked closely with the brand’s engineers to develop a new, bespoke Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyre, which promises a 6% improvement in mechanical grip compared to the previous model.

Should you want to get a little sideways in the corners, the car will happily do that too. This is clearly seen in the accompanying video where a camouflaged prototype undergoes dynamic testing, driven by McLaren chief test driver Chris Goodwin.

“As well as delivering the outstanding driver involvement and enjoyment for which the brand is renowned, McLaren’s new supercar will also excel in everyday driving,” explained Goodwin. What you see here is not everyday driving.

During the 2 minutes 8 seconds video, you’ll also get to hear the new car’s M840T 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 as well, which will definitely provide more power than the previous M838T mill. More details of the all-new Super Series model will be released early next month.
