McLaren to design road car
"The most extreme, track-concentrated road car" Mclaren has every designed is set to become part of the British Automaker's Ultimate Series. The much-awaited vehicle will be revealed in the first quarter of 2018 - ahead of a second future Ultimate Series model which will be code-named BP23 and should be the world's first Hyper-GT. As members of the McLaren Ultimate Series, both will be produced in very limited numbers and all examples are already assigned. Ultimate Series models are positioned above McLaren’s core Super Series and have a distinct focus. Previous examples of the Series include the McLaren P1™ and McLaren P1™ GTR. This next model to join the Ultimate Series will be the ultimate track car but will be road legal. Daily usability is being sacrificed to give the most intensive driver experience around a circuit. Its design, described as brutal, will be the purest expression yet of the company’s ‘form follows function’ philosophy. More details, including the car’s name, will be revealed before the end of this year.
