McLaren to reveal fastest-ever auto later this year

The new Mc Laren will be a hybrid hypercar

Only one other McLaren has had this honour - the recently-revealed Senna hypercar. McLaren has already revealed the prototype model of the BP23, and it features centrally-mounted steering wheel inspired by the F1.

Sadly, all the 106 units of the McLaren BP23 had been allocated even before the auto was officially announced in November 2016 at an ex-showroom price of Rs £1.6million (₹ 14.41 crores). The production will commence by the end of 2019.

In the engine compartment hypercar McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT will be installed hybrid power plant with total capacity of 900 horsepower. The combined output is expected to be around 1,000bhp. The first copies of the McLaren hypercar BP23 Hyper-GT will have their owners in the next year.

British manufacturer McLaren has confirmed that its yet unnamed "Hyper-GT" will have a top speed upwards of 243mph - surpassing the brand's fastest ever vehicle, the F1. The Woking-based automaker has thus confirmed - while revealing new sketches of the car's three-seat layout - the model will be capable of at least 243 miles per hour (391 kph).

Just 106 examples of the BP23 will be made, although that's not the name the final auto will carry. Dubbed as a "Hyper-GT", the BP23 will excel on the road, not the track, and arrive with a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain. The auto is priced at £1.6million (approximately Rs 14.41 crore) before taxes.
