McLaren P1 announced for Goodwood image

McLaren has recently announced its plans to introduce the brand new P1 hypercar during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, this weekend.

After making its public debut just a few months ago, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, back in March, and then ending up in several countries across the globe for marketing purposes, the McLaren P1 is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker announcing the model’s arrival at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, this coming weekend. The McLaren P1 will only be produced in 375 units and its starting price has been set at a whopping 1,025,545 euros.

The hypercar is the company’s first hybrid model, being powered by the same engine found on the MP4-12C and 12C Spyder, slightly modified and backed up by a 179 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm of torque (192 lb-ft) electric motor. The British based automaker says that the total output of the McLaren P1 stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm (633 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is done in less than 3 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph). The P1 is rivaling Ferrari’s LaFerrari and the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder.
