Future owners of the still-to-be unveiled McLaren Hyper-GT, codenamed BP23, will receive a sculpture of the car. The BP23 ‘Speed Form’ hints at the bodywork design that will make the next Ultimate Series McLaren the most aerodynamic car to ever be produced from the marque. He should reach the highest speed of a McLaren with more than 243 mph.
The BP23 ‘Speed Form’ provides a preview of the luxury and imagination that extends under the skin of the vehicle to its interior, which is arranged in the same three-seat, central driving position layout as the McLaren F1 that inspired it. As befits a gift associated with such a rare car, examples of the BP23 Speed Form – which are individually numbered – will not be available to buy.
This three-dimensional piece of art, which measures 15.7in x 8.1in x 3.1in and weighs a proud 7.9lbs, is a product of ‘extreme craftsmanship’, created in the spirit of McLaren automotive design.
Each McLaren BP23 ‘Speed Form’ took more than 100 hours to create, with 30 hours of hand-polishing alone. A craftsman has checked each sculpture to achieve an exceptional standard of build, and the highest quality possible.
Unlike McLaren Sports Series and Super Series cars, which have an alphanumerical nomenclature, the hybrid car BP23 will carry an as-yet unannounced name that will be disclosed nearer to its reveal.
