Since being launched in 2011, McLaren Particular Operations (MSO) has been tailoring Woking’s best supercars to the tastes of every discerning buyer. More often than not, these customized touches could be restricted to further carbon fibre addenda or, at most, a customized paint job – however every now and then, this skunkworks division does get to train the complete extent of its the-sky-really-is-the-limit capabilities.
For MSO, that features constructing a totally bespoke automotive that will appear like nothing else on the street, operating on tried-and-true McLaren mechanicals. The newest of those one-off ventures is the BC-03, the existence of which was confirmed to automotive web site PistonHeads.
“BC-03 is a bespoke buyer fee being created by McLaren Particular Operations,” the corporate mentioned, nevertheless it stopped wanting divulging any particulars “as a result of the specifics of the challenge are confidential between MSO and its shopper.”
The portal mentioned that the BC-03 – the title of which stands for Bespoke Fee 03, after the X-1 and an as-yet-unnamed challenge – might take inspiration from the Final Imaginative and prescient Gran Turismo, at present current solely within the realm of the sport Gran Turismo Sport. Such a automotive might be a track-focused hypercar that’s extra hardcore than the upcoming Speedtail and faster than the already bonkers Senna.
Energy will seemingly come from a improvement of the Speedtail’s hybrid powertrain, which takes the 720S’ four.zero litre twin-turbocharged V8 and pairs it with electrical energy. If that’s the case, the BC-03 will seemingly eclipse the ability output of the Speedtail – already projected to transcend 1,000 PS.
The BC-03’s predecessor, the X-1, is one other blue-sky product based mostly on the MP4-12C. The modern, but outlandish bodywork, with its sweeping curves and faired rear wheels, was impressed by streamlined automobiles from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, in addition to fashionable structure and industrial design.
