The McLaren P1, or the official successor of the F1 as it is also being known, has been officially revealed ahead of its official debut at the Paris Motor Show.
“The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage,’ says McLaren Automotive Executive Chairman Ron Dennis. ‘Twenty years ago we raised the supercar performance bar with the McLaren F1 and our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again.”
According to the British based automaker, the McLaren P1 supercar will be placed above the MP4-12C and the 12C Roadster in both terms of price and performance. the McLaren P1 will enter production later next year and it’s considered to be the official successor of iconic F1.
Additional details on the British supercar are limited for the moment but initial rumors were saying that the P1 will be powered by the same engine from the MP4-12C and from the 12C Spyder, the 3.8 liter V8 Turbo, which, thanks to some tweaks, will provide an extra 120 HP. No more details on the McLaren P12 are known for the moment so we will have to wait for the 2012 Paris Motor Show in order to find out more about the upcoming British supercar.
