Nevertheless, the upcoming BP23 will address that, with the British automotive producer labeling the future machine as a hyper-GT. As it is the case with the F1, the newcomer will feature two passenger seats located a bit further back compared to the central seat occupied by the one steering the car.
The prototype McLaren showcased was a 720S test mule featuring the said seating layout and this is all the world wide web needed to get the rendering dreams started.
As such, we can now bring you a racing incarnation of the BP23, one that comes from digital art label Spdesignset.
Unlike yesterday's 720S-based render, which saw the eye socket air intakes of the Macca being covered, these are now functional. Nevertheless, the machine features the kind of widebody approach you'd expect from a Le Mans racer.
Fat fenders aside, the front splitter is joined by a pair of generous canards on each side of the car, whit the massive rear wing looks like it could generate all the downforce such a car needs.
Of course, a racing incarnation of the BP23 could serve as a spiritual successor to the F1 GTR that took everyone by surprise when it grabbed the Le Mans title back in 1995.
And since the P1 got its fair share of track action (think: P1 GTR racecar), we could actually see Woking building a circuit-destined incarnation of the BP23.
