McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT Will Be Faster Than McLaren F1

The British supercar maker announced at the recent 2018 Geneva motor show that its soon-to-be performance flagship will eclipse the iconic F1 road car's top speed of 391km/h. McLaren has already revealed the prototype model of the BP23, and it features centrally-mounted steering wheel inspired by the F1.

McLaren says its forthcoming three-seat hypercar, codenamed BP23, will be the fastest McLaren ever made with a top speed of more than 243mph - at which point "it will still be accelerating".

Each McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT will be personalised as per owners requirement by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), The McLaren Hyper-GT will follow the same central driving configuration as the F1 and will be equipped with an electric-hybrid powertrain.

In the engine compartment hypercar McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT will be installed hybrid power plant with total capacity of 900 horsepower. 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.

Compared to the Senna, which is aimed exclusively at producing fast lap times, the Hyper GT is slated to be McLaren's ultimate on-going road vehicle, hence the "GT" suffix. 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.

Expect the McLaren Hyper GT to make its debut sometime later this 2018.
