Whilst I don't believe that it's the new McLaren (they wouldn't have a whole car completely painted and assembled already), I see no reason why it would be the W05 in different paint.

The noses have to look like that in 2015.

it is probably a fake...it just caught my eye as the talk was that gillette were to become team sponsors. then i also did hear of sony also..can mclaren make a copy of the mercedes?. the rear of the car looks different though, so I am not sure. i know the nose has to be changed as only the ferrari one from 2014 will be legal in 2015. or the early w05 nose used in Australia.
i will look into it further and try and find the link, the site was all in japanese.

Of course it's fake, how can you possibly think this is real?

Well, logically as well. McLaren is not stupid to have let Autosport to take pictures of their 2015 car, and why does Autosport make a car so similar to the W05, while it is not the W05? And Autosport has nothing recent in their website related to McLaren, other than this http://bbs.hupu.com/11369265.html

Apparently there will be no weirdly shaped noses due to rule changes next season.

So maybe it will look something like that:

It's fair to say that the Vodafone orange was an awesome livery, but that's a poor effort. Hopefully they're doing a Williams 2014, and this is just a temporary test livery.

Looks a little nicer from the top.

Not a bad combination of the West/Vodafone liveries. Pretty disappointing considering the hype of the Honda return and so forth though. There's no way the old Marlboro livery would return, but going with a white, red and possibly even orange car with a different design would have been refreshing. Force India have done a better job of making a McLaren-esque livery than McLaren have. :p

Just seems odd they're sticking with the colours more associated with Mercedes. Surely Honda would have wanted them to steer clear of that?

Oh well, at least the nose looks OK.
