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

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. The three-seat McLaren BP23 follows the same layout as the F1 with a central driving position. Only 106 are being made - the same number as the F1 - and all have already been sold.

In the engine compartment hypercar McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT will be installed hybrid power plant with total capacity of 900 horsepower. The Hyper-GT will be the latest addition to the Ultimate Series and production for the same will commence by the end of next year. The combined output is expected to be around 1,000bhp.

McLaren is building only 106 examples - the same as the F1 - of the new flagship. Moreover, the company will reveal the official name for the new model close to its official unveiling later this year.

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. We expect McLaren to reveal the BP23 Hyper-GT in 2018.

Unlike most McLaren production models, the BP23 will get a bespoke name - like the recently unveiled Senna supercar - and will cost in excess of £1.6million.
