McLaren Hyper-GT Shows off Striking Silhouette

Three-seater is already sold out

After a long wait, McLaren has finally released more info on its new "hyper-GT." The three-seater will be the automaker's most powerful and most aerodynamic road car to date.

Currently under development by McLaren Special Operations, the car is a modern successor to the F1. Only 106 copies will be made, exactly the same number of F1s created. Not surprisingly, all of them have been pre-sold for quite some time and will be delivered to customers in 2019. MSO is now working with buyers to customize colors and trim materials for their personalized "hyper-GT."

McLaren hasn't provided information on the powertrain, but we do know it's a hybrid. A 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine similar to the one in the new 720Sshould be part of the equation.

The automaker has codenamed the car "BP23," a moniker taken from the car being MSO's second Bespoke project and it having three seats. The final name of the car is still unclear.

As we previously reported, McLaren calls the new model a "hyper-GT" because it's designed for both high performance and comfort for long journeys. The driver's seat is located in the center of the car ahead of the two passengers. We'll be on the lookout for pictures of the interior when McLaren releases more info on its latest Bespoke creation.
