New McLaren F1 car
, January 31, 2013
McLaren Formula One drivers Jenson Button of Britain (L) and Sergio Perez of Mexico pose for photographers after unveiling the McLaren MP4-28 car at the company's headquarters in Woking, southern England January 31.
The car was unveiled even as the company celebrated 50 years in grand prix racing and looked forward to returning to the top this season.
Paying tribute to the company's late founder Bruce McLaren, who died in 1970, a succession of winning cars spanning the decades were driven around an ornamental lake and into the futuristic factory atrium in a wall of sound before the sleek new MP4-28 was revealed.
Button said he was raring to go in a car that looked, on the surface, very similar to the one that won seven races last season.
