UPDATE: McLaren Speedster Rendered as Ferrari Monza SP2 Rival, Looks Sleek

Yesterday, we talked about the rumored McLaren Speedster, a two-seater that would have no roof at all, with the machine having bee portrayed in a rendering. Well, we are now back on the topic and the news is brilliant.

You see, the said rendering looked like a teaser image and it turns out that's what it was - we can now enjoy a video render showcasing the Speedster (pixel tip to Charlier Industrial Design Service for this).

The clip, which can be found below, might even trick an untrained eye into believing this is the real deal, such is the level of detail (for instance, the camera even moves about as if the human holding it was walking around).

Oh, and this time around we get a full view of the car, with the sleek windshield and side windows being one of the most important updates.

Speaking of which, the rumor mill speculates that the actual car might skip the side windows, but there doesn't seem to be any serious clue twoards this, other than the expectations generated by similar models already on the market, such as the Ferrari Monza SP1/SP2 and the Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss.

We're obviously talking about an uber-limited model here. And since this promises to be the first McLaren that truly appeals to the eye, it might receive considerably better reviews than the Speedtail, for instance.

The tech side of the machine will mix the company's carbon tub with the company's twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8.

Later this year - that's when the British automotive producer is expected to release the Speedster, which means this will reach the streets next year.

Now, Ferrari introduced the Monza SPs as the first models of a new Icona Series. So if Maranello will make further steps down this pedigree path, perhaps so will Woking.

UPDATE:McLaren has now released a teaser for the upcoming Ulimate Series model, stating this will become its lightest road car (hey, that roof is absent for a reason).
