Saber or Sabre?

But seriously, I hope it's something electrified! McLaren is rolling out models so fast these days I can't keep track.

My immediate reaction is that this could be a name for a new car.

Maybe it's going to be the name for the production version of the McLaren Vision GT Concept that was in Gran Turismo.

Maybe a full EV, something like a Lotus Evija?
McLaren says EV tech is too restrictive at the moment.

"But the charging times are really restrictive. Take the 765LT as an example: we know a lot of customers are going to take that to the track. If it was an EV, you’d be looking at maybe 30 minutes of running time and then plug it in until the next day. That’s not a persuasive position."

That quote reflects an outdated view because DC fast charging technology is now widespread, well understood, and would reduce the charge time back to 30 minutes for a full recharge.
