McLaren has confirmed that pictures of the modified 720S in camouflage are McLaren’s upcoming three-seat grandtourer, codenamed BP23 undergoing testing. The hypercar will join the P1 in the British manufacturer’s Ultimate series of cars and only 106 units will be made. It will feature a central driving seat flanked by two passenger seats, just like the iconic McLaren F1.
The company claims that the production Car will be “the fastest ever McLaren. It’s just faster - that’s all we’re saying at the minute,” said Andy Palmer, McLaren’s Ultimate Series line director. “The goal of this Car is to give customers the ability to have a high level of luxury, bespoke elements on the car, high performance, high speed – a very much road-focused grand tourer.”
“The centre seat is an amazing thing. The attraction is not only the driving position, but you can take two passengers and luggage on a long journey. I’ve been sitting in the back and it’s not a bad place to be,” Palmer added.
