The McLaren P1
Without any further delay, here are the performance numbers: 0 to 100km/h (62mph) will take less than 3 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h (124mph) under 7 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h (186mph) in no more than 17 seconds, or 5 seconds faster than the famous McLaren F1. The P1’s top speed is electronically restricted to 350 km/h (217.5 mph), which falls short of the F1’s 386km/h (240mph).
The Woking-based sports car maker also revealed that production of the P1 will be strictly limited to just 375 units to ensure that it “will remain a rarity and, if spotted on the road, an unforgettable sight”, said the company.
Pricing in the UK is set at £866,000 on the road, which is equal to US$1.31 million and €1 million at today’s currency exchange rates. In the U.S., the P1 will start at a cool $1,150,000. Sales begin this autumn.
