McLaren P1 arrives at Bahrain International Circuit image

McLaren has recently brought a red example of the P1 to the Bahrain International Circuit, where the supercar has been shown to future potential buyers.

Rumors are saying that 120 units of the McLaren P1 have been sold worldwide, and with a total of 500 units which will be produced, McLaren still has some important selling to do. Asia and the Middle East might play a main role in this part of the story and as McLaren knows, there are a lot of rich people over there, who will have to pay 1,2 million USD for the British supercar. The red example pictured above has been taken recently to the Bahrain International Circuit, where it was shown to future potential buyers.

As a quick reminder, the McLaren P1 is the official successor of the iconic F1 supercar. The new British model will get the same 3.8 liter V8 engine under its hood as the MP4-12C or the 12C Spider, but the version used on the supercar will be tweaked in order to produce an extra 120 HP. Rumors are saying that the McLaren P1 will target the Bugatti Veyron in terms of top speed and it will be the fastest accelerating car in the world. Additional details on the final production version of the British supercar are limited for the moment.
