McLaren BP23 will have a higher top speed than the F1

McLaren BP23 will have a higher top speed than the F1

The hybrid-powered BP23 will be built by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the "skunkworks" responsible for designing the firm's Ultimate Series cars.

At the announcement of the project, McLaren Automotive's chief executive Mike Flewitt said: "BP23 will borrow the three seat layout with the central driving position made famous by the iconic McLaren F1, and it will be housed in a streamlined, shrink-wrapped carbon-fibre body of great elegance". Only 106 BP23s will be built, the exact same number of F1s produced.

Other modifications for the Senna GTR include polycarbonate "ticket" window designs, door panels that are pulled inward for better aerodynamics, and a revised windscreen for track use.

BP23 is, unsurprisingly, not the car's final name - like the Senna, Senna GTR, P1, and P1 GTR before it, BP23 will come with a suitable name to reflect its capabilities. Further development of the BP23 is now underway at McLaren Special Operations (MSO), dedicated producers of McLaren Ultimate Series cars.

Price Target Estimates for The Walt Disney Company (DIS)
Malaga Cove Capital LLC acquired a new position in shares of Walt Disney during the third quarter valued at about $140,000. The stock of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS ) has "Buy" rating given on Tuesday, January 19 by Stifel Nicolaus.

A gasoline-electric hybrid system will help the BP23 achieve its performance status.

Like the F1, the McLaren BP23 will feature a novel three-seat layout that sees the driver sat centrally, ahead of two rear passengers. Unlike the McLaren Senna, the automaker's recently-unveiled road-going race auto which leaves carbon-fiber and metal exposed in the name of shedding weight, the new vehicle should be the most luxurious the company has ever made, it says.

BP23 will carry an as-yet unannounced name, rather than the alphanumerical nomenclatures used the McLaren Sports Series and Super Series; this name, together with the maximum possible speed, will be disclosed nearer to the car's reveal. Production is scheduled to begin at the end of 2019, with all examples to be tailor made via the McLaren Special Operations division for added exclusivity. Before you ask about buying one, the entire allotment of 106 units was already sold before the BP23 was announced in November 2016.
