The McLaren P1, the follow-up to the famed McLaren F1, will make its official public debut next month at the International Geneva Motor Show and we finally have some official specs. Needless to say, the McLaren P1 is fast, expensive and so very, very pretty.
Virtually identical to the design study shown last year, McLaren says the two-seat P1 is capable of going from zero to 62 mph in three seconds, to 124 mph in seven, and to 186 mph in just 17 seconds, which is five seconds faster than the F1. Built for both the street and the track, the P1 is electronically capped at a top speed of 217 miles per hour.
The P1 has a combined 903 horsepower from a mid-mounted 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and an electric motor. McLaren's press release states the P1 can be driven in full "electric mode," which is suitable for city driving with an average speed of 30 miles per hour up to a maximum range of 12 miles.
McLaren originally planned to produce 4,000 P1s, but has decided to only build 375 of the supercars. Not only is the P1 going to be limited, but it'll also come with a hefty $1.3 million price tag. So, if you're contemplating a purchase, you better act fast and have the cash to buy it because these cars will probably be snapped up by the 1% just as soon as they go on sale.
