Our first-ever Hyper-GT will be fitted with a petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain producing more than 1000PS
A brand new kind of McLaren is all set for its public debut at 13:00 BST on October 26. The Speedtail – named after its highly streamlined design – promises unrivalled sophistication matched with a whole new level of performance.
Following a private launch event in London, it has now been confirmed that the Speedtail will be powered by a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain, producing more than 1000PS, enough to propel the new ‘Hyper-GT’ to speeds exceeding 243mph. This represents the highest top speed of any road-going McLaren ever produced – even the legendary McLaren F1.
However, the Speedtail isn’t just about remarkable engineering, it’s also about breathtaking style and personal expression. Inside, the interior will use exquisite new materials, which can be further tailored through our bespoke division McLaren Special Operations (MSO) to unprecedented levels of personalisation.
Further inspiration from the F1 is evident in the Speedtail’s distinctive three-seater layout and central driving position. Production will also be limited to just 106 examples, the same number as the F1 – all of which have now been reserved. Production begins in late 2019.
