McLaren has announced that its new three-seat Hyper-GT supercar actually costs US$2.5 million. The British supercar manufacturer also added that all planned 106 units of it have been sold.

McLaren Hyper-GT supercar costs US$2.5 million. The Hyper-GT actually goes by another name and is just shorthand for Bespoke Project 2 with 3 seats. The vehicle will be part of the company's Ultimate Series line of cars with the P1. Unlike the P1, the Hyper-GT will not be a track-oriented vehicle.

The Hyper-GT is homage to the F1 and is a supercar that's focused on speed, refinement, luxury. It is expected to go head-to-head with the Bugatti Chiron and The Koenigsegg Regera.

According to the company's chief executive Mike Flewitt, the reception to the vehicle has so far been very positive. He further added, "Almost from the day I started I've been asked: "Why don't you do another three-seater? When we did finally announce it, we were absolutely inundated with applications. I had to find polite ways to say, 'No'."

The upcoming supercar is designed around a three-seat cabin. Its central driving position will be flanked by two passenger seats reminiscent of the company's original supercar. It will sport powered doors that will extend deep into its roof.

The Hyper-GT has been said to run on a hybrid powertrain and will feature a "shrink-wrapped" carbon fiber body. According to the company, the vehicle will be its most aerodynamic and most powerful street-legal vehicle ever with horsepower output that's more than what the McLaren P1 offers.

No other details about the supercar have been disclosed by the British supercar manufacture. The first batch of deliveries of the Hyper-GT is set to begin in the early part of next year. It should be expected that more information on the vehicle will be provided as this year progresses.
