Frank Stephenson, designer of the British company, made public his wish to see in the McLaren range a volume model the size of a Volkswagen Golf, the current standard of the compact segment. The statement is even more surprising since it coming from the man who designed the last McLaren supercars: the MP4-12C, MP4-12C Spider and P1.

Stephenson says that he considers feasible in the near future a car like the Volkswagen Golf, with a carbon fiber monocoque structure, and with a price of between 30,000 and 40,000 euros.

According to those at telegraaf. nl, the new McLaren model will rival the Volkswagen Golf and it will become a new entry-level to the C-segment. However, entry-level does not mean cheap here, as the model in question will have a carbon fiber monocoque. The new McLaren hatchback will cost approximately 30,000 to 40,000 euros. If, for that kind of money you get what Stephenson wants, than hot hatches in the C-segment, such as the Golf GTI, Golf R, Megane RS, Focus ST and so on, will be in for a rough time.

“I see a car like the VW Golf for 30 to 40,000 euros , but McLaren with a carbon fiber monocoque , to happen in the future”, said Frank Stephenson.
Also, Stephenson wished to criticize the large design departments where there are tons of people with various ideas about style, and supported so vigorously that the final result becomes completely empty of substance. One of the most solid examples is Audi, according to Stephenson.
