McLaren Automotive has confirmed that its forthcoming new ‘Hyper-GT ‘, codenamed BP23, will achieve the highest top speed of any McLaren yet with the capability to exceed the 243mph peak speed of the legendary McLaren F1 road car. A public reveal of the car is to be expected this year.
The next addition to the McLaren Ultimate Series will be both the fastest-ever and the most luxurious McLaren. Featuring a three-seat cockpit design with a central driving position – the same layout as the F1 – and a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.
McLaren say the BP23 will deliver extreme performance and luxury that befits its status as the ultimate road-going McLaren.
The entire BP23 production of 106 examples was sold out before being officially announced in November 2016. Production is due to begin at the end of next year.
Every BP23 is to be personalised to each owner’s taste by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the division of McLaren Automotive responsible for bespoke customer commissions.
More will be disclosed nearer to the car’s reveal.
