McLaren not planning P1 Spyder

The British based automaker McLaren has no plans of putting a P1 Spyder into production anytime soon, as a company’s spokesman has recently told inautonews.com.

With rumors that Ferrari is planning an open-top version of the LaFerrari, which should be sold in an even smaller number, McLaren has no plans of offering such a version of the P1, mostly because making such adjustments aren’t that easy.

“There are no plans for an open-top Spider version of the McLaren P1™ at this stage. The roof section of the carbon fibre MonoCage chassis is a structural part, and includes the snorkel air intake. This is a crucial element for engine intake air”, said the spokesperson.

As I’m sure you already know, the McLaren P1 is the company’s first hybrid supercar and also its fastest product ever. It has been officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and it is rivaling the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder. It has a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout, taking its power from a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 and an electric motor. The total output produced stands at 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes just 2.8 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
