But don’t expect it to be cheap, however, despite being found on the second-hand car market.
RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction will be offering for sale a stunning looking McLaren P1. The hypercar is wearing the popular Volcano Red finish on its body and it seems that it has ended up with the famous auction house shortly after the owner has taken delivery of it. Details on the exotic ride still have to be announced but one thing is for sure, this will definitely be sold for more than the original price.
The McLaren P1 is the spiritual successor of one of the most iconic hypercars of the ‘90s, the F1. The model in question is also the most powerful road-going vehicle to wear the McLaren badges on its body and it is also its first hybrid. Underneath that appealing body, we can find a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, upgraded to 727 HP and 719 Nm of torque, being backed up by an electric motor, rated at 176 HP and 260 Nm of torque. The total output sent to the rear-wheel drive, through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, stands at 903 HP and 978 Nm of torque. This is translated into a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), electronically limited. Only 375 examples have been put together so getting your hands on one can turn out to be quite tricky.
