McLaren dropped this photo on us yesterday of an upcoming addition to its Ultimate Series of cars, which currently includes the P1 and P1 GTR. “Its mission is to be the most extreme, track-concentrated road car McLaren has yet designed,” according to the company. The car will be publicly revealed in the first quarter of 2018. We’re guessing that means we’ll see it in at the Geneva auto show in March.

This next car is different from the BP23, which we talked about a few weeks ago. That car gets a three-seat layout a la the classic McLaren F1.

McLaren says this unnamed car will be built for the track but be road legal, as well.

“Daily usability is being sacrificed to give the most intensive driver experience around a circuit. Its design, described as brutal, will be the purest expression yet of the company’s ‘form follows function’ philosophy.”

We’ll learn the name of the new McLaren hypercar before the end of this year.
