McLaren Can-Am Homage
Famed race car drivers Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme won five of the six Can-Am races in the 1967 season. The very next year started off with an equally dominant performance by McLaren in the new M8A at the Road America Can-Am race, but the M8B faltered at the next race in Bridgehampton due to engine failure. Fortunately, the team reduced the compression ratio of their engines to 12:1, from 13:1, trading horsepower for increased reliability. Designer Yosuke Yamada pays tribute to these classic race cars with the Can-Am Homage. Read more for a video and additional pictures of this sleek hypercar concept.



There were some auto enthusiasts back in the late 1960s / early 1970s that wanted a street legal version of the M8A, so McLaren built the M8C. A total of fifteen M8Cs were built by Trojan and featured a more conventional chassis that did not use the engine as a stressed member, giving customers more freedom in choosing an engine. The Can-Am Homage is either powered by a hybrid powerplant or an all-electric one, but whatever the case may be, it’s designed to go fast.
