Seems like McLaren are out to battle it with Ferrari off the track and on the roads. The new McLaren sports car code named the P11 is toned down in comparison to the F1 and will use a Mercedes V8 engine and wants to tackle the likes of the F430.

''McLaren’s all-new supercar has been spotted out testing. It will battle it out with the Ferrari F430 when it goes on sale in 2010.''

''The production version will rival super cars such as the Ferrari F430, Lamborghini Gallardo and Audi R8 V10. ''

''Spy photos show that the proportions of the P11 could be similar to those of the McLaren F1, and although it is a very heavy disguise, expect influences from the most iconic of supercars to feature on the P11.''

They are not kidding, in regards to the spy photo below, if you did not know this was the McLaren, I'm sure it would be mistaken as a heavily disguised F430 replacement model.

It is well known that Mclaren have been busy taking apart F430s during the development of this car. They have also borrowed a couple of cars from owners over the last year or two so it shouldn't be a great surprise if there are similarities. But then they are used to working with Ferrari designs...
