The McLaren P1 is a futuristic-looking hypercar designed by Frank Stephenson and Robert Melville and assembled in Woking, Surrey, England, from 2013 to 2015. This two-door/mid-engine/rear-wheel drive beast packs a 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 engine delivering a max output of 737 PS at 7500Rpm and 720Nm of torque. But not only that: the P1 is a hybrid hypercar with an electric motor that engages manually by a driver's command. The standard gearbox is a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission developed by Graziano Trasmissioni. This fantastic piece of engineering offers some mind-blowing performance stats:
- The 0 to 62Mph acceleration time is just 2.8 seconds.
- The P1 reaches a 217 Mph electronically limited top speed, one of the fastest for a production car.
- The time to brake from 186 Mph to a standstill is only 6.2 seconds, covering 246 meters.
The McLaren P1 is not only the ultimate hypercar to own, with outstanding features and pristine looks that would drive any enthusiast or speed lover absolutely crazy. The combined fuel consumption of the McLaren P1 is 14L/100Km when running only with gasoline. The included stock tires are Pirelli P-Zero Corsa, 275/30/R19 on the front and 335/30/R20 on the rear, supported by the race active suspension and Brembo braking system. Another space-age feature included is the Instant Power Assist System derived from Formula 1 machines, which gives an instant acceleration boost to the car via the electronic motor. In short, the McLaren P1 is a genuine masterpiece and one of those rides only a lucky few can manage to have, with an exceptional value of over $1,695,000 nowadays.
