McLaren BP23 'Hyper GT' will beat F1's 243-mph top speed

McLaren teases BP23 hypercar

The BP23 will debut later this year and in addition to being the fastest McLaren ever, it will also be the most luxurious.

McLaren has announced that its new "Hyper-GT" vehicle, which is codenamed BP23, will have the highest top speed of any McLaren yet with the capability to exceed the 243 miles per hour.

The F1 iconically set the speed record of 391km/h (243mph) back in the late '90s, with its naturally aspirated V12 engine and six-speed manual transmission.

Google releases developer preview of Android P
In order to use the Google Lens in an Android smartphone, all you need to do is to choose a picture from the Google Photos app . You can try upgrading to Android Nougat or Android Oreo but we don't think the Nexus phones can still handle Android P .

The BP23 will hit the highest top speed of any McLaren yet. McLaren is still keeping a few surprises to itself, as the actual top speed along with the BP23's actual name will be revealed closer to the car's unveiling.

The new model will slot into McLaren's Ultimate Series section of the showroom, joining only the P1, which is now out of production, and the recent Senna.

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".

In the meantime, users continue to swap laughing Alexa stories as though telling ghost stories at a campfire. It's not the first creepy encounter users have had with Alexa .

Why 106? McLaren will build just 106 examples of the BP23 supercar, and each has already been sold for £1.6 million, or roughly $2.2 million United States dollars. Production will begin in late 2019 and the BP23 name will likely change before production.

No specific details of the hypercar have been released just yet.
