Previously known as the “McLaren BP23,” the Speedtail’s sleek shape, reminescent of the 1988 Oldsmobile Aerotech concept, should help it get up to a claimed 243 mph.

The British auto maker is calling this a Hyper-GT car, and has been releasing teasers for this car for nearly a year. As of right now, we know that it will feature three seats arranged with the driver in the center, it has wheel fans on the front wheels (which is awesome), it makes nearly 1000 horsepower, only 106 examples will be made, it’ll cost $2.27 million, and it’ll be the fastest and most luxurious McLaren ever built.

The pictures first leaked out when they were posted by @AutoBant on Twitter:
