Let's take a first look and walkaround of the brand new McLAREN SPEEDTAIL! It's one of the most anticipated cars of recent times, not only as it's the fastest McLaren ever, but also a return to the iconic 3-seat configuration seen in the legendary McLaren F1. Join me for a special preview to take a first walkaround and look at the car to explore some of the remarkable technology it introduces.

The McLaren Speedtail was formerly known by the codename, BP23, and arrives with a whole host of new technology. Not only is the driving seat in the centre, but it's surrounded by a glass cabin unlike anything else. For aerodynamics there are ailerons at the rear from flexible carbon fibre that can constantly adjust. The handles are replaced by motorised doors and the mirrors removed for camera systems displayed as part of the interior displays.

There are a few technical numbers that have been published: 1,050 horsepower, 0-300km/h (186mph) in 12.8 seconds and will go to a top speed of 403km/h (250mph). There will only be a total of 106 units built and they come at a price tag of £1,750,000 plus taxes (£2,100,000 in the UK).

With many more pieces of information to be presented about the car in future, we get a special opportunity to explore and walkaround a very early model of the McLaren Speedtail to get a taster for what this completely sold-out hypercar is all about.

  • I just read an article saying that it isn't even road legal in North America... improper airbags and seat belt for the 3 seats. Pointless and ugly car.

  • Looks like a 70s concept car? I am not sure on this one but good I am sure it will grow on me. The P1 was drop dead gorgeous from the first picture - this may need some time. I suspect it is the wheel covers that distort the looks
