    I think this is going into top tier that the P1 was built into. I’m expecting this to have all new body work and share very little with the 720S once it’s finished.

    We’re likely still a couple years out, though based on an insider who said the Valkyrie engine is still under heavy development & this being its competitor.

    The P1 was basically an MP4 variant underneath the crazy bodywork iirc.

    I'm not, you see two others in the market come to life and at some point you have to start making a move.

    The BP23 will be faster than the F1.

    After the Senna I'm not even sure what to expect from McLaren. The last teaser looks like a vajayjay.

    This whole season of car unveilings seems like a very good way to materialize that meme where it says, "There was a point where we should've stopped and we have clearly passed it - but let's keep going and see what happens!" I think it had a character from Gundam 00 in it.

    Aka a competitor for the Aston valkyrie and AMG project one..now all we need is Porsche and Ferrari to make some megacar with 1000-1200hp using hybrid tech.

    I agree. This isn't naturally aspirated, which is a shame.

    To get to the driver's seat, you have to step on the passenger's seat?

    I don't to sound like an old man because I'm not but cars like the Mclaren F1 can have a successor only on paper they are just too iconic.

    At least tails gets mentioned in the "fastest" Mclaren ever whille sonic only got as far as a small chervolet :lol: :lol: Edit Whops double post :banghead::censored: im sorry.

    Please, please don't end up looking like the McLaren X-1 concept IN ANY WAY AT ALL!,-if it does, certainly it will be known historically as the "Speedfail". (See what I did there? That name though...) Give us a big-pappy to the 720s and there will be only one word needed: "Daaaaayummm!"

    Do you think it's a car made to do Le Mans in 2021 with the new GTP regulation ? :odd:

    Possibly, but unlikely. That's more likely to be the Senna, which is specifically designed as a circuit car, while the Speedtail is a tourer with a huge top speed.

    What's up with the recent obsession with "tail"? I get the return of the "longtail" with the 675LT, as a homage but now there's a 600 Longtail and this Speedtail.

    They can better focus on the F1.

    Instead of continuing to go higher and higher with these powerful machines, have McLaren ever though of making something with less power to compete with the entry level cars that other manufacturers have? Something to compete with the Caymans, 4series (maybe even 1series), those types of cars

    Why would they? Their competition which has existed longer doesn't do this.
