McLaren P1 makes Canadian debut

McLaren has recently made its Canadian debut after being officially unveiled during a local automotive event.

Even if it has been originally shown almost a year ago, in its final production form, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the McLaren P1 is still one of the hottest supercars out there and its debut during the 2014 Canadian Auto Show hasn’t passed unseen. The model has shared the same space with the 12C GT3 and the 12C Spider and, as you might have expected, it has attracted a lot of curious eyes and some cameras.

The McLaren P1 is the company’s first plug-in hybrid supercar and deliveries have begun in the UK back in October, 2013. The model will be produced in 375 units and they will be assembled in Woking, Surrey, England. Power to the supercar is being provided by a 3.8 liter V8 petrol burner, similar to the one found on the MP4-12C, which is good for 727 HP (542 kW) and 719 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. This is backed up by an in-house produced electric motor, which is good for 176 HP (131 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque. The total output stands at 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque, which is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint made in 2.8 seconds and a top speed electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
