McLaren has recently announced its plans to introduce the P1 supercar to the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed, in a local premiere.
After it was officially presented to the public during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, for the very first time, the final production version of the McLaren P1 is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker announcing its arrival at Goodwood. The McLaren P1 has only been produced in 375 units and this is the first production supercar, made by the British based company, which is getting a hybrid powertrain. Prices for the P1 have been set at 866,000 GBP (1 m EUR / 1,150,000 USD).
The McLaren P1 is powered by the same engine used on the MP4-12C and 12C Spider, the 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8, which has been upgraded in order to produce 737 HP (542 kW) and 720 Nm of torque (531 lb-ft). The unit is helped by an electric motor, which is adding an extra 179 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm of torque (192 lb-ft). Total output stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm of torque (663 lb-ft). Power is being sent to the wheels through a seven-speed twin-clutch Graziano transmission. The P1 can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds and it can reach a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
