The BP23 will be produced in 106 units – the same volume of the F1 – and the entire production was allocated before the car was officially announced in November 2016, with a price of £1.6million + taxes.

The car will have a three-seat cockpit design with a central driving position – the same layout as the F1 – and a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain.
