A new review of the impressive McLaren P1 has been posted recently by CNET so this is your chance to see the hypercar in action once again.
Despite being put together in just 375 units over the last few years and that all of them have been sold out, the McLaren P1 is continuing to pop into reviews almost every week. The newest clip with the British hypercar is signed by CNET and it is showing us another review of the impressive model.
The McLaren P1 is the first ever hybrid supercar to be created in Woking, Surrey, England. The model in question has been officially presented to the public back in 2013, during the Paris Motor Show, along with one of its main rivals, the Ferrari LaFerrari. The hybrid supercar lineup was completed six months later, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, where the Porsche 918 Spyder has been shown.
McLaren is offering the P1 in a two-door coupe body style, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. It is packing a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine under its hood, updated from the one used in the MP4-12C and 650S, producing a total of 727 HP (542 kW) and 719 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. This is backed up by an electric motor with 176 HP (131 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft). The total output produced is 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque, sent to the RWD through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. The P1 needs 2.8 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill and it can go up to 350 km/h (217 mph).
