McLaren slightly looser

Trying to loosen up a bit. Got lots of great crits from friends, now to find a real story and language direction.

McLaren 6c

Going to give a compact McLaren a shot.  I'll call it 6c to designate a possible Honda sourced hybrid setup shared with the new NSX and McLaren racing's pending switch to Honda for 2015.

Project rough:
  • Sports car with everyday usability
  • Maximum outward visibility
  • Comfortable seating height (non-supercar)
  • Front trunk large enough for a standard luggage bag
  • Roughly price of 911 Turbo
Hardpoint rough:
  • Shared McLaren family carbon tub 
  • Main radiators positioned between rear wheel-well and tub
  • Roughly the size of a 911
  • Passive aero
First wrap around of initial variations in off the cuff form language.
