The newest and most powerful McLaren supercar up to date, the P1, has recently entered production.
The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to a McLaren spokesman, the P1 hypercar’s production has begun. The company’s official has made the announcement at a recent dealership presentation in Holland. The McLaren P1 will be produced in 375 units and each one will cost just above 1 million GBP.
Power to the British supercar is being provided by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which is backed up by an electric motor, providing an extra 170 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. McLaren says that the total output of the model stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm of torque (663 lb-ft). The configuration is allowing the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just over 3 seconds, with a top speed limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
The McLaren P1 has been officially unveiled, in its final production version, back in March 2013, during the Geneva Motor Show. The model will be produced in 375 units. The P1 is rivaling the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder. The official production start of the McLaren P1 is expected to be announced officially soon.
