You’ve seen CAR’s spyshots of the new baby McLaren supercar and our leaked photos of the P11 styling buck. Now you can check out our spy video of the McLaren P11 snatched during a winter shakedown test up in the snows of Sweden.

It’s the best chance yet to see the junior McLaren coupe in action and finally gives a feel for the dimensions and design of the new F430 rival; funny how seeing a car in motion can change our perception of new, as-yet-unseen models.

Click on the video player embedded below to watch our spy film clip of the McLaren in action. To see the new, scissor-doored coupe for real, you’ll have to wait until autumn 2010, while the roadster follows in 2011.
