Track25 sets out a clear roadmap for future vehicles, production and technology that will allow the brand to continue to position itself as a major global player in the sportscar and supercar market.

It comes as a result of a £1.2 billion investment in the firm and is dubbed Track 25, which is an expansion of the track 22 plan first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2016.

McLaren says it is also looking into "new augmented driving features" to deliver a "step-change in driving experience", along with the development of a new "lighter, superfast-charging, high-power battery system for performance applications" which the company expects to last over 30 minutes on a race track.

The company will also continue its drive to win the new supercar "weight race" by ensuring, as it does today, that each of its products is the lightest in their segment. "We are a luxury brand that is committed to investing in innovation, whether that's in the development and manufacture of our own carbon fibre tubs as part of a new [$66 million] British-based production centre, new powertrains with our entire range due to be hybrid by 2025 or the deployment of technology to enhance the driving and owning experience". Once operational, the MCTC will ensure that roughly 57% of vehicle content by value will be UK-sourced.

"Oppo A3s debuts with 6.2" LCD and Snapdragon 450
Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE , Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB OTG, 3.5mm audio jack, and MicroUSB 2.0 port. We earlier reported that Oppo is gearing up to launch its latest budget smartphone Oppo A3s in the Indian market.

McLaren is also now developing an all-electric hypercar.

McLaren expects the 18 new cars to increase production almost 75 percent to 6,000 annually.

While it's only announced the one vehicle so far, the rumour is Lanzante could be convinced to build two more to match the three-unit production run of the 1997 McLaren F1 GT. This means better cyber security and new wireless updates so owners don't have to send their supercar to a dealership for software updates.

Rising demand means the aim will be to reach 100 retailers within the life of the Track25 plan.
