A McLaren P1 hypercar has recently broke down at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, at Lake Como, in Italy.
Bad news for the British based automaker McLaren, which managed to attract more attention than initially wanted, during the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, at Lake Como, in Italy, after a brand new McLaren P1 managed to break down. The hypercar malfunctioned just a day before the public was allowed access, so not a lot of people seen it being pushed. The video posted below is showing some mechanics working under its hood, but the vehicle is eventually pushed inside a truck and driven away.
As a quick reminder, the McLaren P1 has been officially unveiled back in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The model is rivaling the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder. The hypercar will be produced in 375 units and its starting price has been set at 1,025,545 euros, being 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).
