McLaren to reveal fastest-ever vehicle later this year

McLaren Hyper-GT will have a higher top speed than the legendary 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.

The final name and design of the model will be unveiled before the end of 2018, and this petrol-hybrid-powered auto will be McLaren's most luxurious vehicle yet. At the Geneva Motor Show, McLaren confirmed that the new vehicle - 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.

The BP23 will have a centrally mounted driving position inspired by the F1, however the powertrain will be vastly different: a petrol-electric hybrid, as opposed to the F1's 6.1-litre V12.

This model is going to be up against the likes of the Mercedes-AMG Project One and Aston Martin Valkyrie when all are produced in the next couple of years.

BP23 will carry an as-yet unannounced name, rather than the alphanumerical nomenclatures used by the McLaren Sports Series and Super Series; this name, together with the maximum possible speed, will be disclosed nearer to the car's reveal. Nevertheless, 106 examples will be built and all of them are already sold-out. And anyone who believes they can afford the likely £2 million price tag will be disappointed - since the vehicle was announced in November 2016 all have already been reserved.
