Despite the initial skepticism, super-SUVs are enjoying more traction than ever, so while players such as Lamborghini, Porsche and Jaguar are already at the table, names such as Ferrari and Aston Martin are preparing to enter the game. Then again, there's one key velocity marque that continues to steer clear of the high-riding segment and I'm talking about McLaren here.
Of course, the Internet doesn't like to be kept from dreaming, which is why it has recently replied with a fresh rendering of a McLaren SUV and you are now looking at it - pixel tip to carnewsnetwork for this image.

Sure, the Porsche roots of the pixel play sitting before us are obvious, but the image still managed to give us an idea of how a McLaren SUV could look like.

There are still plenty of aficionados who won't accept the disconnected driving experience SUVs ultimately offer and I happen to be in this camp. Nevertheless, if we must have such machines, I would be curious to see the results deriving from Mclaren's go-fast expertise.

Of course, I would always love a McLaren jportscar (jacked up sportscars). You know, something that would give the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato a run for its money.
