At the announcement of the project, McLaren Automotive's chief executive Mike Flewitt said: "BP23 will borrow the three seat layout with the central driving position made famous by the iconic McLaren F1, and it will be housed in a streamlined, shrink-wrapped carbon-fibre body of great elegance".

McLaren has managed to keep most of the details under wraps, since we still don't know what it will actually be called and how much power the hybrid powertrain generates.

That's the fact that the new Hyper-GT will be a three-seater.

Judge hearing Sharifs' graft cases given three-year extension, notification issued
The federal government approved on Thursday a three-year extension in the tenure of Accountability Court-I Judge Mohammad Bashir. According to a notification issued by the Ministry of Law and Justice, Judge Muhammad Bashir will now retire on March 12, 2021.

McLaren made exactly 106 F1s back in the day and that's exactly how many BP23s they will make as well. McLaren says that the new Senna GTR Concept being shown is an indication, but not a final product, for the Senna GTR track-focused offering. Further development of the BP23 is now underway at McLaren Special Operations (MSO), dedicated producers of McLaren Ultimate Series cars.

It wouldn't be a McLaren if there wasn't a raft of personalization options to choose from, though.

A gasoline-electric hybrid system will help the BP23 achieve its performance status. The BP23 name is, currently, only a codename; McLaren says that the final name will be announced closer to its release, though it won't follow the same alphanumeric pattern of the current Sports Series and Super Series cars.

Chemical factory fire in India kills at least 3, injures 13
The impact of the blast shattered window panes in buildings as far as three kilometers away, including Boisar police station. A massive fire followed the blasts that ripped through a private chemical manufacturing company.

And it's a lot closer to ready than we thought; McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt announced at its Palexpo media conference that he expected the vehicle to make its public debut before the end of 2018, and that it would have a name, like the Senna, rather than a number like the 720S, which will be announced at the same time. At least 243 miles per hour, indeed, thus exceeding the top speed of the McLaren F1. Production will begin in late 2019 and the BP23 name will likely change before production. McLaren says a public debut will take place before the end of this year, with a private preview held beforehand.

Like the F1, the McLaren BP23 will feature a novel three-seat layout that sees the driver sat centrally, ahead of two rear passengers.

Will Fla. Gov. Rick Scott sign legislature's compromise on guns?
Many parents, law enforcement officials and legislators in both parties likewise object to allowing guns in the classroom. The bill creates a $67m (€54m) "marshall" programme to train and arm certain school employees to serve as "guardians".
