McLaren Automotive has released a new design sketch of its forthcoming ‘Hyper-GT’. Codenamed BP23, the car will be the most powerful and most aerodynamic road-going McLaren ever produced.

The BP23 codename is taken from the car being MSO’s second Bespoke project and it having three seats. Production will be limited to 106 examples, the same volume as the McLaren F1. BP23 owners will work alongside MSO to select colors, trim materials and other points of personalization unique to them. The first examples of BP23 are expected to be delivered in 2019.
