It’s official – McLaren P1 enters production, first images released image

The British based automaker McLaren has released a few official images with the first units of the P1 rolling off the assembly line.

McLaren fans and especially the ones looking into the so-called F1 successor, the P1, have come to the right place as the company has recently released some new images with the hybrid supercar. The photos posted below are showing the first units of the McLaren P1 rolling of the assembly line, proving once again that the initial news, brought just last week, was true.

The McLaren P1 has been already unveiled, back in March this year, during the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, where the model “shared” the event with one of its main competitors, the Ferrari LaFerrari. Production of the McLaren P1 will be limited to just 375 units and its official starting price, in the United Kingdom, has been set at 866,000 GBP, on the road.

Power to the McLaren P1 is being provided by the already-known 3.8 liter V8 twin-turbo engine, which is now backed up by an electric motor, producing an extra 179 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. The total output developed stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes less than 3 seconds and top speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h (217 mph).
