well Lambo Model is not really working without SUV and Audi ... Aventador S does not sell at all only the SVJ does ... secondly the Hurcan is developed alongside the R8 sharing much of it’s components architecture and so on making it in effect a 20.000 units a year car ... thirdly Lambo has the URUS/SQ8 SUV to make money ... all this does not work for McLaren with being an independent company... Ferrari’s makes nearly double the number of cars and their segmentation is historical and based on many years development, don’t expect Mclaren to be at the same point after 8 year... further Ferrari tech is simpler and therefor probably higher margin ... I don’t see Mclaren fail, and they will soon have more than only a V8TT (But ppl are again complaining it’s not a V12 which under today’s rules is lost development money) ... McLaren simply never put lots of effort into own engine development, also not as a F1 team but always bought them elsewhere - it made them the 2nd most successful F1 of all time and also the only car manufacturer that’s having a LeMans race engine based engine in every car ever made ...Why can't they just do the Lambo model, i.e a Huracan fighter maybe that is the new hybrid, then 720 replacement fights Aventador replacement at same price point. Then do your one-off Centanarios or Vajajays or whatever at 1M+
Just because they can make an entry level supercar doesn't mean they should. (i.e they shouldn't).
What makes them think there is a market for 25 variants of the same layout? Porsche 911? That is its own legacy.
It's like they can't decide on the Ferrari segmentation, the Lambo segmentation or the Porsche segmentation, so they try to cover all of them, with a single mid V8 to boot.
Keep it up and the Pagani segmentation will be the only option available to them eventually. Or worse, Lotus.
