The new McLaren BP23 will be the fastest McLaren ever

“Absolute top speed is not the point,” McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt says, “but it will be very, very, very, very quick, by far the fastest car McLaren has ever made.

McLaren has already said only 106 of the central driving position cars (the same number as original F1s) will be built, but further details are harder to tease out. We already know it will be a hybrid (I speculated on total power when I drove the BP23 prototype), but will it be 4WD?
