McLaren Unveils BP23 Hypercar Prototype

McLaren Unveils BP23 Hypercar Prototype”

It seems like the P15 hypercaris the third auto in the Ultimate Series range, but it will be on sale before the PB23 due to the hyper GT's hybrid complexities and the number of changes required to the carbonfibre passenger cell - which Palmer will only describe as "different" to the 720S's - to comfortably accommodate three occupants.

The British manufacturer's test mule is based on the current McLaren 720S but that is where the similarities stop.

"The goal of this auto is to give customers the ability to have a high level of luxury, bespoke elements on the vehicle, high performance, high speed - a very much road-focused grand tourer", he adds.

Autocar says the Formula 1 successor will be the first McLaren to feature a hybrid powertrain since 2013's P1 hypercar. And, as you might have guessed, all of them have already been sold. A similar technology will be rolled out "across the mainstream models" in 2020. Mclaren claims that the production version of the BP23 will feature a heavily modified version of the 720S' carbon fiber monocoque and a twin-turbocharged V8 engine coupled to the hybrid system.

The BP23 Hypercar will be the fastest McLaren to be ever built.

Although the BP23 is "bespoke project two", our sister publication Autocar UK understands that another member of McLaren's Ultimate Series line-up, the P15 track-focused sports auto, will arrive before the BP23.

McLaren has announced plans to produce an ultra-exclusive, three-seat "hyper-GT" auto, expected to arrive in early 2019.

This is the layout implemented on the McLaren F1 of the 1990s. It's also just downright cool, providing the driver with a real F1-like driving experience.

McLaren is labelling the BP23 as a "hyper-GT" because it combines the performance of a hyper auto with the comfort of a cruiser.

Rumours of a new F1 have be floating around for a while now, and today we hear from McLaren itself that it is planning to build the most powerful and most aerodynamic road-going McLaren supercar ever.

The vehicle will be the work of McLaren's Special Operations unit (MSO), usually responsible for bespoke packages and options, including powertrain and chassis tuning.

McLaren have yet to reveal how much the BP23 costs, but Autocar predicts it will cost in the region of £2m.
