Revolutionary aerodynamics, central driver’s seat

The McLaren Speedtail is the latest iteration of the Ultimate Series. Although it follows the Senna, it actually replaced the P1, the spiritual successor of the F1. But unlike the P1, the Speedtail features a three-seat layout with a center-mounted drivers seat, just like the F1. Powered by a hybrid drivetrain, it’s the fastest, most powerful, and most aerodynamic McLaren built to date!

Dubbed a Hyper-GT and previously referred to as the BP23, the Speedtail is somewhat of a new concept from McLaren. While it has the output of a hypercar, it looks more like a super-streamline vehicle than a race-inspired supercar and sports a luxurious interior packed with innovative materials. Arguably the coolest thing about it is the central driving seat, a feature borrowed from the iconic F1. It’s the ultimate McLaren road car!

ICYMI: The Next McLaren Ultimate Series, Code Named P15, Will Debut This Saturday!

ICYMI: The Next McLaren Ultimate Series, Code Named P15, Will Debut This Saturday!

Check it out at 7pm eastern time!

The next model to join the McLaren Ultimate Series, the McLaren P15, is set to make its debut on December 9, 2017, at 7:00 pm EST. It’s only been a month since it was first teased with nothing more than an image of the tri-exhaust setup and now we’re looking at another teaser along with word of when we will actually get our first look at the next track-focused road-going monster that is said to have sacrificed daily drivability for a more intensive driver experience. How that translates into a road-going car, we’re not sure, but it’s not like most McLaren owners drive their cars on a daily anyway, right? With that said, it will be the most extreme road-legal McLaren to date but is just the third of 15 new models that McLaren plans to unleash by 2022. For those of who haven’t looked at a calendar in a while, that’s just over four years away.

The next model in line is the BP23, which is also shrouded in mystery but will be the world’s first Hyper-GT. Our McLaren P15 article has some spy shots of a new McLaren, but at this point, things are so sketchy that we don’t know if it’s the P15 of the BP23 but either way, we’re not going to be disappointed that’s for sure. The P15 will be produced in limited numbers and will be the second model to take on the central driving position that was originally introduced by the legendary and record-setting McLaren F1. Is it going to be a true successor to the F1? We don’t know, but one this is for sure: It’s sure to be something we won’t soon forget. For now, take a look at both teaser images below, then check out our speculative review of the P15 with the few spy shots that we do have. Let us know what you think in the comments section too – we look forward to hearing from you!

Update 12/8/2017: This short article was updated with proper Eastern time zone format and a new title. Check back with us Saturday evening to get the scoop on the new McLaren Ultimate Series car

Two New McLarens on the Way; McLaren P15 Teased

Two New McLarens on the Way; McLaren P15 Teased

The Ultimate Series is growing!!!

McLaren has thrown us all for a loop, announcing that the P15 is set to make its debut in the first months of 2018. More importantly, however, is the note that says deliveries of the already-sold-out supercar will begin prior to the debut of a third Ultimate Series model – one codenamed BP23 – that is billed as the world’s first “Hyper-GT.”

What in the world is going on here? McLaren has been quite shady lately, hasn’t it? Most of the world was expecting the P15 to be the world’s first Hyper-GT, and yet here we are finding out that it’s the BP23, a future model, that will sport that designation. Are our previously posted spy shots of a McLaren in camo really the P15, or are they of the BP23? Well, it’s hard to say, but I’ll talk more about that in the coming days. For now, let’s talk about the fact that the already-sold-out P15 has finally been teased, well if you consider exhaust outlets a teaser, that is. Of course, this does little in the way of filling us in with even the slightest information, but hey, it’s a start. In six months, we’ll know everything, so until then, we have to make do with the knowledge that it’s being billed as the “most extreme, track-concentrated, road car” that the British brand has ever designed. Usually, I would chalk that off as a lot of PR talk as I wiped the McLaren manjuice from my lips, but McLaren always delivers, and right on time, too.

The P15 will be produced in very limited numbers, just like the P1 and P1 GTR. It will be road legal, despite the focus of it being so track-concentrated. McLaren says it has gone so far as to sacrifice daily usability just to give the most intensive driver experience around a circuit. McLaren also says that the design is “brutal” and follows the company’s philosophy of “form follows function.” Keep holding your breath if you want to know more, but don’t worry, you’ll only turn 30 different shades of blue – McLaren has promised more details and the cars official name by the end of the year. Sounds like an exciting Christmas present, don’t you think?

McLaren Just Built a Three-Seat 720S to Preview its Successor to the P1

McLaren Just Built a Three-Seat 720S to Preview its Successor to the P1

The F1’s innovative interior makes a comeback in this crazy mule

While the McLaren P1 was a fantastic supercar in just about any department, many die-hard fans felt that it missed an essential feature: the three-seat layout of the iconic F1. McLaren apparently took note of this complaint and confirmed that its next hypercar will have three seats and the driver will sit in the middle, just like in a Formula One car. Described as a hyper GT and often referred to as the BP23 or the P15, McLaren’s new flagship is still a mystery as far as design and drivetrain go. But the Brits just unveiled an early version of its cockpit in a modified version of the 720S.

Earlier today McLaren posted a photo on Facebook showing a 720S supercar wrapped in swirly, black and white camouflage. Nothing out of the ordinary if you ignore the wrap, but things become a bit unusual when you look at the windscreen and notice the driver and the steering wheel placed in the middle of the cockpit. Another image, this time from the inside, shows the mule being driven on a race track, once again with the driver sitting in the rather unusual position for a road-legal vehicle. Although McLaren didn’t have much to say about it, it’s pretty obvious that we’re being given a sneak peek of the upcoming supercar’s interior.

Brace Yourselves, A Track-Focused Successor To The McLaren P1 Is Coming!

Brace Yourselves, A Track-Focused Successor To The McLaren P1 Is Coming!

Model will be limited to just 500 units, priced at around $814,000

The super competitive world of hypercars can be really amazing. Not only do we get some of the fastest and most powerful driving machines from it, but we also see first-hand how this space has spurred a competitive arms race among automakers. It’s great to see these companies embrace the challenge of innovation and dive in head-first. Take McLaren for example. The British automaker has already given us the P1 hypercar, and now it’s all set to follow that up with a successor that will apparently include a track-focused model that will be faster than the P1.

Word of this development comes by way of Autocar, which is reporting the new model, codenamed P15, will not only be faster than any McLaren model other than the P1 GTR, but it will also be much lighter than its predecessor. In fact, one of McLaren’s intended goals for this model is for it to have a much better power-to-weight ratio than the P1, allowing it to be much faster around the race track than the automaker’s ground-breaking hypercar. The report also says that the P15 will feature the company’s new Monocage II carbon fiber monocoque while also making extensive use of active aerodynamics to allow it to have better performances on a race track. Specific details are expected to be announced as the project advances, although it is being reported at this point that McLaren will only build 500 units of the model featuring just one variant, likely being a coupe, with a price tag of about €700,000, or around $814,000 based on current exchange rates.

McLaren's Future Plans Include P15, P16 And New 2+2

McLaren’s Future Plans Include P15, P16 And New 2+2

There has been a lot of talk about McLaren’s known plan to launch a new model each year by 2019, but very few details have oozed from Woking, England until now. We do know there’s a track-speed P1 GTR and a more affordable P13 in the pipeline, and that a new supercar is scheduled to hit the streets in 2016. The rest of the McLaren lineup was still a mystery until today, as Automobile managed to dig up even more details surrounding the company’s upcoming expansion.

According to the magazine, McLaren’s drawing board is already full. Besides the P13 and P1 GTR set to arrive within the next couple of years, the Brits are developing a near-supercar, likely to slot between the 650S and the P1, as well as a replacement for the 650S. The two are reportedly scheduled to break cover between 2017 and 2019, with a brand-new sports car with a 2+2 seating configuration to follow in 2020.

Sounds like the Brits are elbows deep into their new strategy to conquer the sports car and supercar markets.
