    The car was previously knows as the P15 And is the replacement for the P1, making it the second car in the McLaren “Ultimate series.”


    "New model will be the ultimate road-legal track car and feature a brutal, form-follows-function design.

    This image is a tantalising glimpse of our new Ultimate Series model, which is set to be publicly revealed in the first quarter of 2018. The new car, codenamed P15, will mark the pinnacle of our range – the latest member of the family that spawned the revolutionary McLaren P1™.

    The new model will be the most extreme, track-focussed road car we’ve ever designed. In fact, everyday usability has been sacrificed in the name of giving it the most intense driving experience on circuit.

    Its design has been described as “brutal” and “the purest expression yet of our ‘form-follows-function’ philosophy.”

    The name, along with further details of the car, will be released before the end of 2017.

    Like the McLaren P1™, the new car will be produced in extremely limited numbers, and all examples have already been assigned to customers.

    Deliveries will start before a second future Ultimate Series model – codenamed BP23 – joins the range. The BP23 aims to be world’s first Hyper-GT."

    Dont get it.

    is it hybrid like p1 was? Looks like a 720 with race car aero pack. How would this differ from expected 720LT version?

    and what is the hyper gt bp23 car? Is that the 3 seater ive heard about? Something new with front engine?

    confusing

    It's called the "Senna"

    The rear is the most horrendous thing I've seen in my life

    Absolutely hideous to me. Trying way too hard. 720 looks 100x better. What is up with those front wheel wells--I mean this has to be a joke right?

    Shame--was looking forward to something exceptional. What a huge let down.

    I would have lost my cookies at the Mac Winter Ball if I saw that.

    This has to be a joke, right? If not it is a mistake.

    Looks more like it’s been designed with racing in mind than styling.

    I also wonder what true wet weight is and regular bhp rating. Why does mclaren make things so confusing? I would bet 2900 lbs and 750 hp.

    With that giant angular nose, it should have been called the Prost.

    :D

    I know that some with their early deposits are not happy.

    Struggle to flip this in the UAE, let alone rest of the world.
