The brand new McLaren P1 has been recently tested on the famous German track, the Nurburgring.
The British based automaker may have officially pulled the wraps off the P1 earlier this year, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere, but that doesn’t mean that the supercar is ready for its future customers. In order to make sure that everything is in its place and working just like it should, the company has recently brought the P1 to the Nurburgring, where the hybrid supercar has been tested. The footage posted below is showing the McLaren P1 in action on the track.
The McLaren P1 will only be produced in 375 units and its starting price will be set at 1,025,545 EUR (1,340,740 USD). The supercar will rival the Ferrari LaFerrari and the upcoming Porsche 918 Spyder. Power to the McLaren P1 will be provided by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, backed up by an electric motor which is generating 170 HP (132 kW) and 260 Nm of torque (192 lb-ft). The 0 to 100 km/h acceleration is done in just over 3 seconds and top speed has been electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).
