Pretty much identical. No real surprises here.

I think I won't notice a single difference until I see both side by side.

Camouflage basically to make it harder to pick out the lines from photos.

Can't see it (damn work!) but from what I'm reading, excellent reveal, indifferent new car. :( I was hoping for something special. An actual gold car would be awesome. Gold instead of silver, black instead of the red trim. That would be awesome.

It is very different under the skin indeed.

Pullrods and new rear suspension. Sidepods also have a different indent, i suspect all aero will be changed by Melbourne.

very similar indeed...the side pod intakes have a chunk out of them, and the body just behind the cockpit has less curves as it blends into the sidepods...and that's about it...

I cant see that being the exaust outlet they run in melbourne. mind you launches are always "chuck a bit of last years car on it" i assume so they are not giving away info they need not.

Doesn't look much different to last years car, hopefully it'll carry the momentum from the tail end of 2012 over.

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the older McLarens being driven in, and then Jenson in the P1. Great build up the the unveiling.
At first glance the car looks very similar, but hopefully some side by side comparisons (and more new parts being revealed in testing and Melbourne) will show up some interesting differences.

It has a high chassis and a modesty panel. Look at the high res picture closely...

No sign of Telmex sponsor logo or Mexico. Anyone have a view from rear?

Surprised there are no vortex generators or the wee panel over the top of the side pods they had at the tail end of the season.

Might get slapped on for Jerez.

It's a good looking car, though I agree with those who wanted a bit more of a 50th anniversary theme to the livery. Maybe a special white and gold livery could appear around September time to mark the actual anniversary - run it from say the Belgian GP until Singapore?

Also looks like a rather old front wing - doesn't look like what they were running at the end of last year.

#McLarenMP4-28 : just launched with a high chassis & modesty panel. Pull rod front suspension & similar sidepods. Same old livery!


Is it a high chassis with a modesty panel?

I would say the side pods are very different.

I think the bend to the nose is more pronounced than last years, maybe they have raised it slightly?

Of course it looks like the same car to us Internet morons. In the same way one might look at a pot of caster sugar and a pot of cocaine and think "these are identical, so surely they're both perfect for my morning cup of Joe."

As i said half an hour ago, look at the high res pic and you will clearly see the modesty panel. It couldn't be more clear!
