McLaren P1 arrives in Hong Kong image

The impressive McLaren P1, in its final production version, has been recently introduced in Hong Kong, as the Asian auto market will play a main role in selling the 375 units.

The brand new McLaren P1 is being promoted to almost every major automotive event, since its unveil in March, 2013, during the Geneva Motor Show, and not only, as we have recently learned, as the hybrid supercar has just made its way into Hong Kong. The British based automaker is planning to develop a total of 375 units of the P1 and the Asian auto market will play a main role in selling them.

As a quick reminder, the McLaren P1 is powered by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, sourced from the MP4-12C and 12C Spider, with revised output, and by a 170 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque electric motor. The total output provided by the hybrid powertrain stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes less than 3 seconds and top speed has been limited to 350 km/h (217 mph). The McLaren P1 is a rival for the Ferrari LaFerrari and for the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder.
