McLaren has teased the world’s first Hyper GT, that borrows heavily from McLaren F1’s famous three seat layout. A teaser image of the upcoming model has been released by the company, that reveals the most significant feature of the hypercar, which is a three-seat layout, with the driving position in the middle and a seat on either side – just like the F1.
Codenamed BP23, the new model is being charged as a 'hyper-GT' instead of a hypercar in the form of the first F1 and its P1 successor. As per McLaren, it is a vehicle designed specifically for long journeys, that includes high levels of performance driver engagement expected from any McLaren car. Owners have been informed that the model will be created as coupe with no open-top or track-centered GTR variations planned. This is with regards to McLaren's brief to make a hyper-GT. However, the company hasn’t revealed anything about the vehicle’s powertrain, but it is likely to be a hybrid unit. It has also reported that the vehicle will be the most powerful McLaren ever produced.
Designing of the hyper-GT has started already, however for the present McLaren is just openly demonstrating a picture which, pretty much, uncovers the seating arrangement, a mid-motor design, high backside and a decreased nose. You can also expect upward-lifting gates just like other McLarens.
According to a statement by McLaren, the car will deliver the highest levels of refinement, enabling significant journeys to be undertaken with up to three people aboard. The news comes just after McLaren group’s CEO and chairman Ron Dennis resigned from the company after being 35 years in charge. Dennis, who holds a 25% stake in the organization, was a key individual from the team who built up the first F1 street auto of the 1990s.
