McLaren confirms 243mph-plus top speed for new BP23 hypercar

Tentatively codenamed BP23, the car's performance was confirmed at the Geneva Motor Show by CEO Mike Flewitt who also revealed that the vehicle will arrive later in 2018. McLaren has already revealed the prototype model of the BP23, and it features centrally-mounted steering wheel inspired by the F1. The production will commence by the end of 2019. 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 be the most extreme road auto yet from the Woking based carmaker.

In the engine compartment hypercar McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT will be installed hybrid power plant with total capacity of 900 horsepower.

McLaren says its forthcoming three-seat hypercar, codenamed BP23, will be the fastest McLaren ever made with a top speed of more than 243mph - at which point "it will still be accelerating".

Giphy stickers suspended from Snapchat and Instagram
Giphy has claimed to have fixed the bug and also re-moderated all of the GIFs in their vast library. The GIF includes disturbing text including a racial slur, which TechCrunch has blurred out below.

Once the BP23 arrives it will sit alongside the McLaren Senna as part of the brand's Ultimate Series which means that it will have a real name instead of the usual alphanumerical nameplate of the Super Sport Series. The official name, power figures and the top speed is likely to be revealed later this year. The cost? A cool £1.6 million, plus taxes.

Company McLaren in total plans to produce 106 units of the hypercar BP23 Hyper-GT.
