Plans for McLaren's new road car factory are now on the Woking Council website.
37,938m2, not 17,760 reported elsewhere.
Hope to get planning permission in time to start building Sept 2009, start production mid/late 2010. 1st car (P11) launched later this year ahead of production in 2010.
Biggest revelation in planning docs is that the rumoured "cheap" £60k to £80k McLaren doesn't exist. Depending on which part of the McLaren documents you read there will either be
"three new models ranging in price from £100,00 to £600,000"
"three models ranging in price from £160k to £600k"
On the plus side, this means that the top of the range McLaren F1 successor is only £600,000, not the rumoured £1million.

I think an 80k McLaren to take on the 911 would be great car.. Sad.

Also, at least one of the McLaren road cars will have KERS or other hybrid system. They are recruiting a senior hybrid powertrain engineer.
It's a sign of the times. I think it's a blind alley, but the emissions numbers may be the only way to get some vehicles registered at all in some markets of the future, so we'll put it down as a necessary evil
Her butt looks like a couple of badly parked VW Beetles in those slacks
New photo of disguised McLaren P11, from McLaren new factory plan document posted on Woking council website. A bit clearer and closer than earlier spyshots.
Convertible version of McLaren road car will have a retractable hard top, made by Webasto onsite at the Woking factory.
Source planning document lodged with Woking Council, available on their website.
This document also refers to both P11 and P12 as model codes - still looking for references to 3rd model
