We know very little about McLaren’s little teaser of their upcoming P15 Ultimate Series car, but the information we do have tells us a lot. For starters, this is not the three seater BP23 that we talked about earlier. That one looks to be a next-gen F1, while this P15 looks to replace the P1.
The P15 is set to be revealed on December 10th, and McLaren promises a “road legal track car unlike anything we’ve built before.”
We can now confirm our new Ultimate Series – codenamed P15 – will be revealed on December 10th. At exactly one minute past midnight, the world will get its first sight of a road-legal track car unlike anything we've built before. It's time to get excited.#McLaren #UltimateSeries pic.twitter.com/A71efmM0fn

Short of that, we don’t know too much about the P15. As a track focused car, expect it to have aero on top of aero. It also seems to be ditching a hybrid powertrain in favor of a turbo V8. McLaren has also stated that although the car will be road legal, some daily driving usability and comforts will be sacrificed to make for a more intense circuit experience.
There’s not much more for us to do except wait for December 10th…one minute past midnight, to be exact.
