16 Astonishing Facts About The New McLaren Speedtail Hyper-GT
Facts about the new McLaren Speedtail will reveal just how much of a technological marvel the new car really is. It is like the opposite of the Senna, which is all about downforce, cornering, and track abilities. The Speedatail, also known as the Hyper-GT, is a long distance cruiser made to make impressive speed runs, create a luxurious ambiance for its three occupants, and be the fastest thing on the road. Previously, we have seen it in the BP23 prototype guise. Now, however, McLaren delivered something extraordinary - a true McLaren F1 successor. At least a spiritual successor as this one doesn’t have a naturally aspirated V-12, and it is built of materials so advanced that the F1 feels like a relic in comparison.
Nevertheless, the looks of the Speedtail just reveal how dedicated designers were to creating the fastest car possible. No wonder it looks a bit like a Jaguar XJ220, or a bit like a puffed up Volkswagen XL1.

Five Unexpected Facts about the McLaren Senna
After decades of tremendous success in Can-Am racing and Formula One, McLaren built its first road car in 1992. It was the most advanced vehicle on the market back then, and it’s still among the best, despite being nearly three decades old.

Exactly two years have passed, and McLaren introduced a new flagship model, the Senna. By far the most spectacular McLaren ever made, the Senna comes with a few surprising facts.
