The British based automaker McLaren is currently thinking about a replacement for the impressive P1, the company’s first ever hybrid supercar.
It hasn’t been long since McLaren has officially presented to the public the P1, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, and the car manufacturer is currently considering a replacement for the impressive ride. This has been hinted by the company’s CEO, Mike Flewitt, who has recently spoken to the guys at Edmunds. According to our source, the model in question “could be 10 years away”, but this is all he offered on the subject. However, he has added that the P15 will not be a replacement for the P1.
The McLaren P1 is rivaling the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder and this is the most powerful production supercar the company has ever produced. It is being offered in a two-door coupe body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power comes from a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine, backed up by an electric motor. The total output stands at 890 HP and 978 Nm of torque, which is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration made in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 245 km/h (152 mph).
