New McLaren hybrid hypercar will be company's fastest ever

391km/h, 3 seats: McLaren F1's successor is coming New McLaren BP23 will be fastest McLaren ever made

McLaren claims that, alongside the car's clear performance credentials, it will also be the most luxurious auto to leave the Woking factory to date.

Codenamed McLaren BP23, the firm's next "Ultimate Series" model, is capable of exceeding the 243mph peak speed of the iconic F1. It will feature nods to the original McLaren F1 in several ways, including the centrally mounted driver seat flanked with passenger seats.

Alongside the Senna GTR, McLaren used the Geneva Motor Show to reveal that the forthcoming three-seat "Hyper-GT" will be the fastest auto the brand has ever produced.

Speaking of the reveal, McLaren will host a private debut for customers ahead of its public debut. They will cost $3.2 million and - as seems to be the case with every new hypercar announcement - every single one has already been sold.

Waymo announces new efforts in self-driving trucks
Our software is learning to drive big rigs in much the same way a human driver would after years of driving passenger cars. It said that the software is learning to drive trucks in the same way a human would after years of driving a auto .

That's the fact that the new Hyper-GT will be a three-seater. Production will begin in late 2019 and the BP23 name will likely change before production.

The actual 720S test mules don't give us any clues as to how the BP23 will look, but the teaser sketches provide us with an early taste; an elongated, swooping rear end houses an aggressive rear diffuser and thin LED lights. The BP23 name is, currently, only a codename; McLaren says that the final name will be announced closer to its release, though it won't follow the same alphanumeric pattern of the current Sports Series and Super Series cars.

If you're one of those lucky 106 owners-to-be - the same build-run size as the F1 - McLaren Special Operations (MSO) will be reaching out to you shortly to customize your particular vehicle to your undoubtedly particular tastes.

McLaren has managed to keep most of the details under wraps, since we still don't know what it will actually be called and how much power the hybrid powertrain generates.
