The first ever recorded incident with a brand new McLaren P1 is coming all the way from the UK and it’s showing the supercar with a scratched paint on its front fender and with a ruined wheel.
A minor crash in a popular hatchback means a cheap and fast repair, but when you are talking about one of the hottest supercars on the planet, which has been produced in a limited number, things get “a little” different and the service bill will probably show the equivalent of buying a new hot hatch. We’re not sure how the McLaren P1 ended up looking like that but we do know that it has been spotted in the UK.
The McLaren P1 has been unveiled almost a year ago and it’s currently being assembled in England. The model is the company’s first ever hybrid supercar and it has a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 under its hood, backed up by an electric motor. The total output produced stands at 903 HP and the peak torque at 978 Nm (722 lb-ft). The unit is mated to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is made in 2.8 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
