McLaren confirms 243mph-plus top speed for new BP23 hypercar

McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT Will Be Faster Than Mc Laren F1

McLaren confirms 243mph-plus top speed for new BP23 hypercar

The final name and design of the model will be unveiled before the end of 2018, and this petrol-hybrid-powered auto will be McLaren's most luxurious vehicle yet.

The British supercar maker announced at the recent 2018 Geneva motor show that its soon-to-be performance flagship will eclipse the iconic F1 road car's top speed of 391km/h.

Like its predecessor, produced between 1992 and 1998, the newcomer will be a three seater, with a central driving position. Featuring a three-seat cockpit design with a central driving position - the same layout as the F1 - and a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, BP23 will be the most extreme road vehicle yet from the Woking based carmaker.

Once the BP23 arrives it will sit alongside the McLaren Senna as part of the brand's Ultimate Series which means that it will have a real name instead of the usual alphanumerical nameplate of the Super Sport Series. Codenamed the BP23 (the final name has not been confirmed yet), there have not been too many details coming forth about it. Each will be personalised to their customer by McLaren Special Operations, and production of the cars will begin at the end of 2019. You're too late. McLaren will be hosting a private showing of the vehicle to just 106 people - of the 106, all are customers who have already purchased the auto for £1.6 million or AU$2.8 million. Nevertheless, 106 examples will be built and all of them are already sold-out.
