2010 could go down as the year of the green supercar… prototype. Most every high-end automaker has either rolled out a hybrid concept, like the Porsche 918 and Ferrari KERS hybrid, or at least plans for some kind of more fuel-efficient supercar.
Well now you can add McLaren to that list. The famous maker of the once world’s fastest supercar, the McLaren F1, is pledging to produce the least carbon emissions per horsepower of any other car for sale anywhere.
Still, I like that McLaren is trying to go green, and to help get to their goals they are concentrating on weight. The lighter the car, the easier it is to propel. Weight is the enemy of fuel efficiency, so cutting back the pounds should produce good results. McLaren also hired a hybrid engineer last year; could they be the next supercar maker on the rotating stage with a hybrid model to flaunt? We shall see.
