New Mc Laren BP23 Will Go Faster Than Legendary F1

McLaren F1 successor to be company's fastest road auto to date

Like the F1, the BP23 is meant to be a road vehicle first and foremost, and as such is referred to by McLaren as a "hyper GT" auto.

Now codenamed BP23, the new model will sit alongside the Senna in the McLaren range, but unlike that auto it'll be powered by a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain.

That's the fact that the new Hyper-GT will be a three-seater. Only 106 BP23s will be built, the exact same number of F1s produced.

When the McLaren Senna finishes its production run of 500 vehicles, the Ayrton Senna homage auto will see a track-only version based on the Senna GTR Concept being shown in Geneva. McLaren said in the announcement it will reveal the BP23's final name closer to its reveal later this year.

Other modifications for the Senna GTR include polycarbonate "ticket" window designs, door panels that are pulled inward for better aerodynamics, and a revised windscreen for track use. McLaren seeks to build an Ultimate Series auto for each type of driving its customers are likely to enjoy.

McLaren has announced that its new "Hyper-GT" auto, which is codenamed BP23, will have the highest top speed of any McLaren yet with the capability to exceed the 243 miles per hour.

Production of the gasoline-electric hybrid is due to begin at the tail end of 2019, giving unparalleled joy to 106 very, very well-off people. McLaren claims that, alongside the car's clear performance credentials, it will also be the most luxurious auto to leave the Woking factory to date.

Like the F1, the McLaren BP23 will feature a novel three-seat layout that sees the driver sat centrally, ahead of two rear passengers.

Codenamed McLaren BP23, the firm's next "Ultimate Series" model, is capable of exceeding the 243mph peak speed of the iconic F1. McLaren says a public debut will take place before the end of this year, with a private preview held beforehand.

Why 106? McLaren will build just 106 examples of the BP23 supercar, and each has already been sold for £1.6 million, or roughly $2.2 million Dollars.
