Deadmau5 posts photo with his McLaren P1 image

Famous Canadian progressive-house music producer Deadmau5, or Joel Thomas Zimmerman by his real name, has posted an online photo with his newest ride, the McLaren P1.

Deadmau5 is known for his passion in fast and exotic vehicles and the newest addition to his garage is a blue-finished McLaren P1. The British hypercar has been delivered just a few days ago and the artist has recently posted an online photo with it. McLaren will be producing the P1 in just 375 units and all of them have been sold out already, so if you are interested in one, you’re better off on the second-hand market. The hypercar has been presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, along with one of its main rivals, the Ferrari LaFerrari, being followed six month later by the Porsche 918 Spyder.

The model is offered in a single body style, a two-door coupe, getting a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 which has been upgraded to 727 HP (542 kW) and 719 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. The in-house developed electric motor is good for an extra 176 HP and 260 Nm of torque and the total output produced by the assembly stands at 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the McLaren P1 needs just 2.8 seconds and it can reach 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds and 300 km/h (186 mph) in 16.5 seconds. Top speed is 350 km/h (217 mph).
