McLaren’s F1 successor is officially on the way.

The British automotive imprint announced today that a followup to its beloved supercar — long considered to be one of, if not the, best automobile to ever hit the road — is in the works in honor of the F1’s 25-year anniversary. Dubbed the BP23 for “Bespoke Project 23,” the car is being billed as a spiritual successor to the early ’90s original and is designated by McLaren as a “Hyper GT” since it’s specifically built for long-distance travel. While additional details remain scant, the car will make use of a hybrid powertrain — one that should be capable of more than the 904 horsepower offered by the P1 — while McLaren’s usual dihedral doors will be power operated and extend into the roof itself a la the Ford GT40. Best of all, though? The carbon fiber beast will indeed retain the F1’s unique three-seat configuration.

Stay tuned for more info regarding the project, but don’t expect to get behind the wheel of one any time soon: like the F1, the BP23 will be limited to just 106 production models, all of which have already been spoken for.
