McLaren-Honda today reveals its brand-new 2016 Formula 1 Championship challenger, the MP4-31, ahead of the first all-team test, which will begin in Barcelona tomorrow.

The MP4-31 chassis integrates the new Honda RA616H power unit, developed exclusively for the team. While many of the car’s components are strengthen and matured from last year’s McLaren-Honda MP4-30, the new car also incorporates a significant number of all-new innovations, including unique aerodynamic solutions with a highly space-efficient integration of Honda’s new-for-2016 power unit.

Joining McLaren-Honda’s partner group for 2016 will be the world-renowned luxury watch brand Richard Mille, which commences a 10-year marketing, branding and licensing collaboration.

Global luxury goods giant LVMH will continue its long unbroken association with the team, through its premium sparkling wine brand Chandon, whose rising-star identity will adorn both the MP4-31 and the drivers’ race suits.
