McLaren releases a second teaser of their upcoming supercar [video]

McLaren has released a new teaser video of an upcoming model that will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show.

Dubbed "McLaren vs. Aerodynamics," the clip provides a digital glimpse of the mysterious supercar in a light-infused wind tunnel. There isn't much to see, but the model appears to be heavily-influenced by the MP4-12C.

Nothing is official, but speculation suggests the car is the highly-anticipated F1 successor (codenamed the P12). Previous reports have indicated the model could use a 3.8-liter V8 engine and a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) to produce a combined maximum output of 963 hp (718 kW). This may enable the supercar to accelerate from 0-100 km in 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed of approximately 384 km/h (239 mph).
