    With an unprecedented series of rule changes introduced ahead of the 2009 season, the new Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-24 represents a significant departure from its world championship-winning predecessor.

    The new McLaren Mercedes MP4-24, has radically different aerodynamics and a Kinetic Energy Recovery System, which should give the new car a boost of 80bhp for up to seven seconds.

    The McLaren Mercedes MP4-24 features a wider front wing, a more compact rear wing, it has no ancillary appendages and features driver-adjustable front-wing flaps. The McLaren Mercedes MP4-24 also displays a heavily revised diffuser.

    While still retaining the distinctive family look established with both the MP4-22 and MP4-23, this year’s car is visually very different from its predecessors.


    The MP4-24’s KERS device has been developed in collaboration with McLaren and Mercedes-Benz HighPerformanceEngines, which has been developing and refining the system for almost two years. The device enables the car to recover energy under braking, store the energy for a lap and release it when the driver presses a button on the steering wheel.
