Some 25 years after the McLaren F1 burst into the scene, it’s one true successor, the McLaren Speedtail has finally arrived.

2019 McLaren Speedtail
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.
