The first videos with the new McLaren XP2R prototype testing on the Nurburgring have just made their way onto the web, revealing the model in action.
After pulling the wraps off the 12C Spider and then unveiling the brand new P1 hypercar, the British based automaker McLaren has been spotted testing a new model, which has been named the XP2R. The vehicle in question has been believed to be a brand new supercar or an updated version of the P1, but the company has stepped forward and told Autocar that the mystery model is a simple tester of the standard P1.
As a quick reminder, the new McLaren P1 has been officially presented to the public back in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model is rivaling the new Ferrari LaFerrari and the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder. The McLaren P1 is powered by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, sourced from the MP4-12C and 12C Spider, with revised output, and by a 170 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque electric motor. The total output provided by the hybrid powertrain stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint takes less than 3 seconds and top speed has been limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
