THE McLaren Hyper-GT will be the fastest road going car the company has produced - outstripping the 243mph performance of the iconic McLaren F1.
McLaren chief executive Mike Flewitt announced at the Geneva Motor Show that a public reveal of the still-unnamed car can be expected this year.
Codenamed BP23, the Hyper-GT will feature a three seat cockpit with a central driving position, just as the F1.
It will be powered by a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain capable of delivering breathtaking performance.
With a price tag of £1.6 million, the entire limited production run of just 106 models was allocated before the car was officially announced in November 2016.
Production is due to begin at the end of next year, with every BP23 personalised to each owner's taste by McLaren Special Operations, the division of McLaren Automotive responsible for bespoke customer commissions.
The BP23 will carry an as-yet unannounced name, rather than the alphanumerical nomenclatures used by the McLaren Sports Series and Super Series.
The name, together with the maximum possible speed, will be disclosed nearer to the car's reveal.
