The McLaren MP4-X is what the company envisions could be the future of Formula 1 racing. The concept car is high tech and has the ability to communicate system failures and other problems. It also features a closed-in cockpit to help protect the driver.

The McLaren MP4-X is also designed to use alternative sources for fuel. This includes solar cells that are layered on top of the car. This Formula 1 concept car also has a chassis that can change shape for different aerodynamic situations.

“Formula 1 is the ultimate gladiatorial sport, and the future we envisage will be a high tech, high performance showcase that excites fans like no other sport,” John Allert, Group Brand Director at McLaren Technology, said in a statement.
