McLaren which will produce
only 106 units of the new McLaren Hyper GT car will cost around Rs 14.4 crore a
piece and will have a top speed exceeding 391kmph. All the 106 cars have
already been sold out. McLaren Automotive has confirmed that its forthcoming
new ‘Hyper-GT ‘, codenamed BP23, will achieve the highest top speed of any
McLaren yet with the capability to exceed the 243mph (391 kmph) peak speed of
the legendary McLaren F1 road car. The news follows the announcement by McLaren
Automotive CEO, Mike Flewitt during the Geneva Motor Show press conference that
a public reveal of the car can be expected this year.
Only 106 of this model will be
produced and all are already sold at £1.6million (Rs 14.4 crore approximately)
The next addition to the McLaren
Ultimate Series will be both the fastest-ever and the most luxurious McLaren.
Featuring a three-seat cockpit design with a central driving position – the
same layout as the F1 – and a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, BP23 will
deliver the unparalleled blend of extreme performance and sporting luxury that
befits its status as the ultimate road-going McLaren.
The entire BP23 production of
106 examples 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 (MSO), the
division of McLaren Automotive responsible for bespoke customer commissions.
BP23 will carry an as-yet
unannounced name, rather than the alphanumerical nomenclatures used by the
McLaren Sports Series and Super Series; this name, together with the maximum
possible speed, will be disclosed nearer to the car’s reveal.
