McLaren will build 160 of the exclusive cars; the same number of F1s built back in the 1990s.

McLaren has confirmed it will build a three passenger ride inspired from the F1 very soon. According to McLaren the new ride will be called the BP23 and they will build only 160 of the exclusive edition Hyper GTs.

The BP23 will be the spiritual successor for the iconic F1 supercar. Although the three seats configuration may have seemed unrealistic to some but for many it will be anew and pleasing surprise.

The point in fact has been proven by the speed with which the cars have already sold out. Furthermore the price isn’t even revealed yet but is being hinted at seven figures. The F1 inspired BP23 is not even manufactured as of yet but all 160 of them have already been booked. 

According to McLaren, BP23 is short for "Bespoke Project 23" and the Hypr GT has been added because it is designed for long-distance travel, according to AutoBlog.

Even though some have pointed put the weakness of the name but let’s be honest the company has never been good with names. What’s more important at this point is what the car will really deliver. So far all clues on the car point towards it being amazing. 

The BP23 will undoubtedly be a hybrid with an all carbon fiber body and is claimed to be capable of more than 904 horsepower. McLaren have also announced every single piece of switchgear inside their BP23 will be unique.

Another classic being featured in the new ride will be the McLaren calling card; the dihedral doors but they will have a twist. The doors on BP23 will be power operated and they will extend all the way into the roof like the Ford GT40.
