McLaren Confirms Its Fastest Three-Seater Road Car Ever

McLaren has teased photos of its next Ultimate Series hypercar, along with a promise that the new model will be the fastest ever produced by the brand.

The McLaren F1 has been the British manufacturer's fastest auto with a 243mph top speed since its introduction in 1992 - but now, 26 years later, that looks set to change.

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.

They tore copies of the speech and flung it in the air while a few MLAs also broke microphones and threw them towards the podium. The Congress, meanwhile, had identified almost 20 issues which they would raise in the Assembly to corner the government.

Now officially known by its BP23 code name, the auto will carry a proper name - McLaren's Ultimate Series models are named whereas the more mainstream Sports and Super Series models carry numbers. 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 auto yet from the Woking based carmaker.

Base plus tax is £1.6-million (about R26-million today), keeping it neatly out of most people on Earth's reach. Only 106 are being made - the same number as the F1 - and all have already been sold. At least one example is expected to hit local roads in 2019. The first copies of the McLaren hypercar BP23 Hyper-GT will have their owners in the next year.
