Default 3-seat McLaren BP23 Hyper-GT

McLaren offers some more detail about its hyper-GT F1 successor

McLaren dribbled out a little more info Wednesday on its upcoming "hyper-GT" car that's due in 2019.

BP2 actually means this is McLaren Special Operations' second "bespoke project" and the 3 denotes that it has three seats. Pretty simple, eh?

The company will not likely use the BP23 name in production. All of these future supercars are pre-sold, McLaren says. The owners will get to personalize their cars down to the color, trim, and materials.

The new sketch, released as part of the naming explainer, shows swoopy lines and big wheels.

The BP23 will have a hybrid powertrain and the title of most powerful and aerodynamic road-going McLaren ever. The BP23 is being pitched as a successor to the three-seat McLaren F1. McLaren made 106 F1s, and the same number of BP23s will be produced.

Chris Goodwin looks really creepy inside the car there in that first picture!

Also those rear view mirrors, look very very bulky for a supercar. Wonder what they are going to do about the drag. The original McLaren F1 had regular mirrors. Maybe it will all change as this is just a test mule.

This is just a test mule.

This article has far more information and clarifications.
