McLaren BP23 'Hyper GT' will beat F1's 243-mph top speed

McLaren Hyper GT Teaser New McLaren BP23 will be fastest McLaren ever made

Today, McLaren set a top speed target for it: The limited-edition hybrid hypercar will surpass the legendary McLaren F1 from the 1990s. While the F1 was an out-and-out speed machine, McLaren says the BP23 will be a "hyper GT", meaning it'll be more comfortable and spacious. That 106-unit production run also refers to the original F1 road car's sales figure.

The BP23 will hit the highest top speed of any McLaren yet.

At the announcement of the project, McLaren Automotive's chief executive Mike Flewitt said: "BP23 will borrow the three seat layout with the central driving position made famous by the iconic McLaren F1, and it will be housed in a streamlined, shrink-wrapped carbon-fibre body of great elegance". As no surprise, all of them have already been sold, with a sticker price of £1.6 million (excluding taxes). Production is due to begin at the end of next year.

With a price tag of £1.6 million, the entire limited production run of just 106 models was allocated before the vehicle was officially announced in November 2016. It's believed it will be powered by the latest 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 though, with electric motor assistance for a huge amount of power.

McLaren chief executive Mike Flewitt announced at the Geneva Motor Show that a public reveal of the still-unnamed auto can be expected this year.
