McLaren P1 underbody shown in images image

The very first images with the underbody of the McLaren P1 have ended up on the internet and they are revealing the complex aerodynamics of the British supercar.

The images posted below have been taken in Los Angeles, while the British supercar was going to a private event into a hotel location for future possible buyers and they are revealing the complex underbody aerodynamics of the model. The McLaren P1 has a double diffuser, active flaps in the front and some other features which will help stabilize it at high speeds and improve its downforce. All panels have been made out of carbon fiber.

As a quick reminder, the McLaren P1 has been officially presented to the public back in 2012. The model will be the official successor of the F1 and it will use the same 3.8 liter engine as the MP4-12C and 12C Spyder but, thanks to some tweaks, the unit will produce a total output of approximately 800 HP (596 kW). The final production version of the McLaren P1 is rumored to be unveiled during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. More details on the model remain unknown for the moment.
