The automobile brand is now out to correct everyone and confirm that they are actually building a Hyper GT McLaren which is going to commemorate the big heritage the original F1 built throughout the decades. The P1 was an extremely powerful model which also had a hybrid model that was designed to excite people to the core. Despite the fact that it was never meant to be on part in terms of performance and speed when compared to the original F1, it was assumed to be the successor until now.
According to a statement made by an automobile magazine, the upcoming McLaren Hyper GT will be a three seater vehicle and is supposed to carry a price tag of $2.6 million. A wide range of details have been inspired by original car in terms of design, construction and overall finish.

The original F1 was made with no stones unturned as it was a completely different period back then. The new model, however is going to follow a specific set of rules allowing the three seater Hyper to fall under the GT series. The team which had the opportunity to work on the car was instructed to come up with the fastest GT every built and we can be sure that they achieved the level. It is quite possible because they have a huge price tag making it easy to choose any component as they desire.
The automobile enthusiasts predict that the upcoming McLaren Hyper GT will be powered by a twin turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine. The powertrain should be capable of delivering up to an amazing 700 horsepower making it a beast on the road. The top speed of the proposed model is somewhere around 200 miles per hour and probably might go higher if not limited for road safety.
Many enthusiasts may want a V-12 engine on the McLaren Hyper GT but it is going to be the powertrain the company offers. Those who really need it may have to switch to the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 to get unbridled performance.
