    Sport-Super-Hyper-Mega-Ultimate-....

    The superlatives are getting harder to top. It's like Dragonball Z except with cars. At this point even GTA is having a hard time producing facsimiles fast enough to keep up with the real world.

    It's going to be a hyper car. McLaren's Ultimate Series has the P1. Then they have the Super Series which is MP4-12C, 650, 675 and 720. And then there is the Sports Series which is 540 and 570.

    No it's quite easy to understand, they even say it's a hyper car and have said that since this isn't the first thread to talk about this car. Ultimate as said here is just to help differentiate that this is the pinnacle McLaren has to give for a road going car. It works quite simple you have sports cars, super cars, and finally hyper cars. Only one company has used the term "Mega" and that was for the One:1. All of them at the end of the day are derivative of the old term "exotic" car.

    That's fine but it is simply being expressed to you how the commentary made is faulty, shouldn't be an issue. It was being clarified in a simple manner on what is what.

    Isn't the BP23 being classed as a hyper-GT though? From what I've been reading, the P15 is going to be the most aggressively track focused Mclaren yet, with sacrificing usability for track performance.

    Which is what the P1 and P1 GTR were before these two, that's what I'm saying. And Before them it was the F1 and F1 LM. As I said this is what I expect to see. P23 be the road version of the more aggressive track version. The others in this range however, I don't expect to build a track version because I expect their cars to be both the track and road version in one package.

    True they've been through it twice and essentially did the same thing.

    By far the ugliest McLaren I've ever seen. That's some eye gouging stuff right there... absolutely horrendous.

    I guess this is what happens when a car's design is completely inspired by functional aerodynamics :crazy:

    It is probably a beast around a track but my word is it horrible to look at. Looks like the Veilside RX-7's ugly sibling.

    Jeebus. That had to be designed by someone with way too much money.

    Even I, a fan of outrageous designs, think this thing is ugly as.... nah, don't wanna risk a ban.
    Damn McLaren, lay down the crack pipe.
    Also what's up with that HUGE overhang on the front? I thought one of the most important aero and handling rules is to keep it as short as possible.
