McLaren MP4-X Formula One Concept

McLaren has debuted a new formula one concept car, the MP4-X, which they’re noting is the “vision of the future.” It looks like something a futuristic Batman would probably drive, and it comes loaded with safety features to keep the driver safe.

The stylish McLaren also comes with a heads-up display, tire sensors that warn drivers of imminent blow-outs, and an enclosed cockpit that would help to prevent head injuries. Although it’s a concept car, the company notes that all of the technology contained within are real, although they might be in their earliest stages of conception. With this automobile, McLaren claims that they could potentially introduce a brain-controlled driving system that would monitor electrical signals in the driver’s brain, using them to steer the car. But McLaren isn’t stopping there when it comes to pushing the ideology behind the car, as they’ve also included a couple of minor details that aren’t even allowed under current F1 rules, such as a sculpted underbody that turns the surrounding air into plasma.
