McLaren has released a small set of images with the P1 in its attempt to become the fastest production car on the Nurburgring.
The British based automaker has recently confirmed a “less than 7 seconds” time for the P1 on the Nurburgring and it has even released a small video with the hybrid supercar in its attempt to become faster than the Porsche 918 Spyder, but now time has come to enjoy some images with the model on the famous German track. According to the carmaker, the McLAren P1 managed to complete the 20.8 km lap with an average speed of 178 km/h (111 mph), but this still doesn’t say too much about its exact time.
The McLaren P1 has recently entered production and it’s currently being assembled in Woking, Surrey, England. The hybrid supercar has been unveiled as a concept at the 2012 Paris Motor Show while its final production version has been brought to this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The entire 375-unit production of the P1 has been sold out by November 2013, despite its price list. Power to the supercar is provided by a 3.8L V8 petrol engine, combined with an electric motor. The total output produced is 903 BHP and 978 Nm of torque, sent to the RWD through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
