McLaren will reveal the Speedtail in October 26

First, there were rumours of a McLaren F1 successor. Then, we got a development code for the car: BP23. And finally an unimpressive name, Speedtail. After all this, we are about to know how the car really looks apart from the many teasers it already had. And the revelation date will be October 26.

The Speedtail, according to McLaren, has been sculpted to reach the highest speed any Mclaren ever has achieved. Including the F1, a car that could go beyond 380 km/h. The Senna is about handling and downforce. Ironically, the Speedtail will have the same central driving position and two passenger seats, one at each side of the driving seat. Only 106 units will be produced. And they are probably already sold out. We just have to know the price and technical specifications. For curiosity’s sake…
