The McLaren BP23 has a name: Speedtail

This latest entry in McLaren’s Ultimate Series will clearly be the ultimate of ultimates. It will be the world’s first Hyper-GT car. How do we know this without having details on the powertrain or even knowing what it will look like exactly? The following will convince you.

The Speedtail is meant to become the new McLaren F1. Yes, that F1. What’s best known about the F1? In no particular order: It’s expensive, exclusive, fast, sits three and its value will skyrocket faster than “Who is America?” viewership numbers.

Only 106 units of the Speedtail will be built and sold, like the F1. They are already reserved at £1.6million plus taxes. The top speed will exceed the F1’s 243mph thanks to a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. The Speedtail’s cockpit will feature a three-seat cockpit design with a central driving position, exactly like the F1.

Beyond this information, all we can share is a link to a teaser video released by McLaren on the Ultimate Hyper-GT. We can’t wait to find out more.
