The 2014 McLaren Formula One car has officially been unveiled. The new, turbocharged MP4-29 will be piloted by former world champion Jenson Button and Danish rookie Kevin Magnussen. The 2014 F1 season is set to be a challenging one for McLaren, as it attempts to bounce back from its first winless season since 2006 and its first season without a podium since 1980. The new MP4-29 sports some interesting changes as part of the new technical regulations for this season. Of course, we've written at length about the addition of turbocharged, 1.6-liter V6 engines for this season, but we haven't discussed many of the other changes. Eight-speed transmissions replace last season's seven-speed cogswappers, while cars now have a maximum rate of fuel flow for 2014. The KERS system is more powerful as well, up from 80 horsepower to 160 hp, while the aerodynamics have also seen some tweaks (ahem, the nose).
