The maximum speed of the hypercar McLaren Speedtail, which will be the successor of the legendary F1, will be 391 km/h

The units of the new McLaren hypercar, which will be called the Speedtail, will exceed 1000 horsepower. This edition of Top Gear told the head of the British brand Mike Fluit.

According to the top manager, McLaren Speedtail will receive a hybrid power plant, created on the basis of a four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. In this case, the architecture will differ from the former flagship model of the automaker – P1.

McLaren Speedtail will be positioned as an ideological successor to the legendary F1 coupe, which for 20 years kept the title of the fastest production car in the world. Like its predecessor, Speedtail will receive a three-seater cabin, where passenger seats will be located on each side and slightly away from the driver’s seat.

The maximum speed of the novelty will be 391 km/h – 2 km/h more than the McLaren F1. Thus, Speedtail will become the fastest car in the history of the British automaker.

A total of 106 copies of Speedtail will be issued, the cost of each of which will exceed two million dollars. At the moment, all cars are already sold out.
