The entire BP23 allocation of 106 units – same volume as the the McLaren F1 – was spoken for within weeks of the petrol-electric hybrid car being announced.
While the future owners wait for their yet-to-be-unveiled hypercar, McLaren is presenting them the BP23 ‘Speed Form’ sculpture. McLaren said that each piece took more than 100 hours to create including 30 hours of expert hand-polishing.
According to the company, the BP23 ‘Speed Form’ provides an early hint of the bodywork and its interior, which is arranged in the same three-seat, central driving position layout as the McLaren F1 that inspired it.
This three-dimensional piece of art measures 400 mm x 205 mm x 80 mm and weighs 3.6 kg. Each piece is machined using the latest 5-axis CNC cutting technology but hand-assembled and finished.
McLaren predicts that their new hypercar will do more than 243 mph (390+ km/h).
