McLaren’s 2008 challenger will be formally launched in Germany next week. The team had previously stated they had no plans for an official unveiling, but the wraps will now come off the MP4-23 at the Mercedes-Benz museum in Stuttgart.

The new car, which will be raced by Lewis Hamilton and recently-signed team mate Heikki Kovalainen in 2008, will be revealed on Monday, January 7. It will be the first time in McLaren’s 13-year partnership with Mercedes that the team have launched a Formula One car in Stuttgart.
