The first ever privately owned McLaren P1 has been recently spotted on the streets of London where the new hybrid supercar has managed to attract everyone’s attention.
The British based automaker McLaren has already put the P1 into production a couple of months ago and deliveries have began, so now, for the first time ever, we can see the first privately owned hybrid supercar cruising the streets of London. The McLaren P1 has been officially unveiled, in a world premiere, in its final production form, back in March 2013, during the Geneva Motor Show, along with one of its rivals, the Ferrari LaFerrari, while the other competitor, the Porsche 918 Spyder, has been shown in Frankfurt, in September.
The first ever British hybrid supercar is taking its power from the 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine, which is also used on the MP4-12C and 12C Spider, which is backed up by a 179 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm (192 lb-ft) of torque electric motor. The total output produced stands at 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint takes less than 3 seconds and top speed stands at 350 km/h (217 mph). Prices for the P1 start at 866,000 GBP and only 375 units will be produced.
