MSO has officially introduced its newest project, based on the P1 hybrid hypercar, which has received a lot of interesting modifications.
The McLaren P1 isn’t the kind of vehicle that needs modifications so whenever McLaren Special Operations (MSO) decides to introduce yet another one-off version of the exotic model, we simply have to share it with you. The newest one has received exposed carbon fiber body sides while the rest of the panels have the chrome finish on which the company has applied an orange shade. Modifications performed to this model end here and don’t expect and chances made under its hood, because there really is no need for it.
McLaren is using a twin turbo V8 3.8 liter petrol engine under the hood of the impressive P1, rated at 727 HP and 719 Nm of torque, backed up by an electric motor, developed in-house, adding an extra 176 HP and 260 Nm of torque. The total output sent to the rear-wheel drive, through a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, stands at 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque, which is enough to allow this hypercar to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), which is electronically limited. The McLaren P1 will be put together in just 375 units and all of them have been sold out already. The vehicle has been shown, in its final production form, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
