McLaren Hyper-GT, codenamed BP23, has been confirmed to make a debut with a massive top speed figure exceeding the 391 km/h of the legendary McLaren F1 road car.

McLaren Hyper-GT will be the fastest ever McLaren and according to the brand, the most luxurious as well.

All of the 106 McLaren Hyper-GT BP23 examples were allocated before the car was officially announced in November 2016. All of the 106 cars have been sold at a price fo GBP 1.6 million plus taxes (that's about Rs 14.41 crore plus taxes).

Production is due to begin at the end of next year, with every BP23 personalised to each owner’s taste by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), the division of McLaren Automotive responsible for bespoke customer commissions.
