The British based automaker McLaren has recently released a new video with the P1, where the supercar is shown while being tested in the Arctic Circle.
The McLaren P1 is definitely one of the coolest products ever developed by the company and after it was officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, back in March, the model is ending up in our news once again, this time with a new video released by the carmaker. The footage posted below has been shot probably in late 2012 and it’s showing the P1 being tested in the arctic circle, in severe freezing conditions.
The McLaren P1 will only be produced in 375 units and its starting price has been set at 1,025,545 EUR (866,000 GBP / 1,340,740 USD) at the current exchange rates. The model is rivaling the Ferrari LaFerrari and the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder and it’s powered by a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, from the MP4-12C and the 12C Spyder, backed up by a 179 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm of torque (192 lb-ft) electric motor. The total output stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm of torque (663 lb-ft), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in less than 3 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
