Three-seat McLaren BP23 set to be firm's fastest yet

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

The news follows the announcement by McLaren CEO, Mike Flewitt during the Geneva Motor Show press conference that a public reveal of the vehicle can be expected this year. Like the F1, the BP23 will have a three-seat cockpit with a central driving position, while power will come from a petrol engine attached to an electric motor.

The next addition to the McLaren Ultimate Series will be both the fastest-ever and the most luxurious McLaren.

Unfortunately all models have been accounted for, despite the price tag of 1.6m pounds plus taxes, which in Australian terms would put it somewhere in the vicinity of $4m after luxury auto tax and other costs.

That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine. "It's kind of being sorted out, we're still talking about it to be honest. Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has announced that he will retire at the end of the season .

Tentatively codenamed BP23, the car's performance was confirmed at the Geneva Motor Show by CEO Mike Flewitt who also revealed that the auto will arrive later in 2018. "A hybrid powertrain will make it one of the most powerful McLarens yet created, but the auto will also deliver the highest levels of refinement, enabling significant journeys to be undertaken with up to three people aboard".

Drive understands the benchmark goal for the vehicle will not be a lap time, suggesting it could set new top speed records in the vicinity of 400km/h, or chase the Mercedes-AMG Project One into five second territory for the 0-200km/h dash. Only 106 are being made - the same number as the F1 - and all have already been sold.
