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

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

McLaren Confirms Its Fastest Three-Seater Road Car Ever

The vehicle body made of carbon fiber and the interior is designed for three seats.

The McLaren F1 successor is nearly here and it's promising to be the British marque's fastest road auto ever, overtaking its predecessor's world record speed of 243mph back in 1992. 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. At the Geneva Motor Show, McLaren confirmed that the new auto - codenamed BP23 - will have a top speed above 243mph, meaning it's faster than the peak velocity of its iconic F1 supercar of the 1990s.

Interestingly, the BP23 won't be chasing elusive Nurburgring laptimes once it debuts. The drivetrain will also be hybrid powered, likely making use of the 720S' twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 paired to electric motors.

Keen to express your interest? And anyone who believes they can afford the likely £2 million price tag will be disappointed - since the auto was announced in November 2016 all have already been reserved.

McLaren will only be making 106 examples of the auto.
