McLaren P1 starts its deliveries in Q2 2013 image

McLaren has recently announced that the all-new P1 supercar will start its deliveries in the second half of 2013.

After it was officially presented to the public for the first time during the 2012 Paris Motor Show as a prototype, the McLaren P1 is entering our news once again, this time with the British based automaker announcing that the deliveries of the supercar will start in the second half of next year.

“We will start deliveries starting from Europe, and Japan will be a little after that”, said Antony Sheriff, a managing director within the company.

The McLaren P1 is the official successor of the iconic F1 and the supercar will be placed above the MP4-12C and the 12C Spyder in terms of both performance and price, but even so, the model will get the same engine as its brothers mentioned above, the 3.8 liter turbo, which should produce an extra 120 HP. The McLaren P1 is challenging the Bugatti Veyron in terms of top speed and the company is saying that this will be the fastest accelerating car in the world. The final production version of the P1 will be unveiled in Geneva next year. Only 500 units of the McLaren P1 are expected to be produced.
