McLaren has brought the final production version of the P1 to the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, where the model has been officially presented to the public in a world premiere.
One of the most awaited supercars of the year is the McLaren P1 and now the British vehicle has been officially unveiled, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The McLaren P1 has already been presented to several potential buyers and rumors are saying that out of the 375 units which will be produced, almost half of them have already been sold, even if their future owners didn’t get to see the final production version.
The first images with the McLaren P1 have been released a few days ago, after the British supercar has leaked, and it had shown a model finished in bright yellow paint, with a tighter mesh, carbon fiber air vents and sitting on street tires. The McLaren P1 will come with a hybrid powertrain, which will be made out of a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, the same one from the MP4-12C and 12C Spyder, which has been modified in order to produce 747 HP (542 kW) and 720 Nm of torque.
The petrol burner is being “helped” by an electric motor, which is providing an extra 179 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm of torque (192 lb-ft). The total output produced by the hybrid is 916 HP (674 kW). The McLaren P1 is a direct rival for the Ferrari F150 and for the Porsche 918 Spyder. Additional details on the McLaren P1 remain unknown for the moment.
