McLaren's new ultimate track auto will be here in the spring

McLaren confirms ultimate road-legal track car is coming McLaren to Debut its Most Extreme Car Ever in Early 2018

Set to join the McLaren P1 and its GTR variant in the Ultimate Series is a new "track-concentrated road car" from the British sports-car brand. It doesn't sport a name, so the rumor mill jumped at the occasion of baptizing it, settling on P15 for now.

The rhythm of new model launches at McLaren is getting more intense, much to the delight of supercar lovers all over the world.

McLaren describes the new model's design as "brutal", saying it will be the purest example of its "form follows function" philosophy. It will deliver "the most intensive driver experience around a circuit".

Designed as a spiritual successor to the McLaren F1, the BP23 has the same three-seat layout that puts the driver smack-dab in the centre of the cockpit.

It will make its way ahead of the second Ultimate Series model which is codenamed the BP23.

While the next Ultimate Series auto is pitched as the "ultimate track car", McLaren states it will remain road legal - just don't expect it to be comfortable enough for regular trips to the shops.

Philip Morris International Inc
Canada Pension Plan Investment Board raised its position in shares of Philip Morris International by 42.0% in the first quarter. Breton Hill Capital Ltd. grew its position in Philip Morris International by 196.1% during the first quarter.

McLaren hasn't divulged any further details about the powertrain, power output or the performance figures.

We'll learn the name of the new McLaren hypercar before the end of this year.

So what's with the newly-announced model?

McLaren has confirmed that the next model in its "Track22" business plan will be its most track-focused vehicle yet.

Both cars will be produced in very limited numbers and all 106 available order slots have already been accounted for. The aerodynamics on the vehicle will likely be extreme in order to put the power down and keep the auto planted on track.
