McLaren P1 2014

Considered the true successor of the legendary McLaren F1, the P1 has arrived ushering in a new era of hybrid hypercars with extreme performance. Utilising a carbon fibre monocoque construction with a mid-engine rear drive layout and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, P1 is a direct rival to the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918, who all share very similar specs.

3.8L twin turbo V8 has had the boost turned up to 1.4 bar to achieve a power rating of 727 hp (542 kW) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque at 7,500 rpm. To bring the numbers closer to the 1000 hp mark an electric motor producing 177 hp (132 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) is used in conjunction with the petrol engine to help produce some incredible performance figures. Use of the electric motor can be used manually by the driver or left for the ECU to ‘torque fill’ the gaps in the petrol engine’s output.

To keep some exclusivity, McLaren limited the production to 375 units with the option for customers to customise their P1 through McLaren Special Operations (MSO). All P1’s were hand built at a rate of 1 car per day, with the first P1 delivery in October 2013, and production officially ending in December 2015.
