McLaren started with a reengineered version of the 3.8-liter V-8 that powers the 650S. With bigger turbos strapped on, and running a healthy 20.3 pounds of boost, the P1’s gas engine is plenty enough propulsion. Each of the engine’s 727 horses is tasked with moving only 4.5 of the P1’s 3300 pounds.
The McLaren P1 is a British limited-production plug-in hybrid sports car produced by McLaren Automotive. Debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, retail began in the UK in October 2013 and all 375 units were sold out by November. Production ended in early December 2015. The United States accounted for 34% of the units and Europe for 26%.
When economic conditions revived in the late 1990s, Mercedes-Benz, the supplier of the racing engines for McLaren's Formula 1 racing program, commissioned the construction of another supercar by the race team, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
McLaren will only consider selling to 375 guys and gals who have already bought the road-going P1. The rest of us will have to settle for high-res photos and video of the P1 GTR. The McLaren f1 GTR won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995.
The McLaren P1 supercar will wear a lofty price tag of $1.15 million when North American deliveries begin in early 2014. Just 375 copies will be produced worldwide. Just 375 copies will be produced worldwide.
Finally, McLaren has made a supercar for everyone, and for everyday driving. And, at a fifth the cost of the company’s expensive cars, it’s only $200,000!
