106 clients who were lucky enough to reserve an example of the car they previously knew only as BP23 were notified that it will be named the McLaren Speedtail. The world’s first Hyper-GT and McLaren’s next entrant to its Ultimate Series will reach the highest top speed of any McLaren yet, with the capability to exceed the 243mph peak speed of the legendary McLaren F1 road car. Its design will be flowing and highly streamlined, incorporating exquisite new materials to ensure limitless possibilities for tailoring through McLaren Special Operations (MSO).
The news follows the announcement by McLaren Automotive CEO, Mike Flewitt, during the Geneva Motor Show press conference that a public debut of the McLaren Speedtail will take place this year. The 106 customers who have reserved one will be invited to see it first.
The McLaren Speedtail will be both the fastest-ever (in a straight line) and the most luxurious McLaren. The hyper-GT will feature a three-seat cockpit design with a central driving position and a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain. It will deliver the unparalleled blend of extreme performance and sporting luxury that befits its status as the ultimate road-going McLaren.
The entire production of the McLaren Speedtail was allocated before the car was officially announced in November 2016. Production is due to begin at the end of next year, with every McLaren Speedtail personalised to each owner’s taste by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the division of McLaren Automotive responsible for bespoke customer commissions.
