The super exclusive hypercar will adorn the stage at the Geneva Motor Show which starts on March 5. Just a few days back, the supercar maker had announced that only 375 examples of the car will be made.
The McLaren P1 is powered by a hybrid powertrain which has a combined power output of 903 bhp and a combined torque of 900 Nm. The P1 has what McLaren calls as Instant Power Assist System (IPAS) which supplies instant bursts of power from a lightweight electric motor.
The car has a sub-three second acceleration time from rest to a ton while 200 kmph is dispatched from a standstill within 7 seconds. The hybrid powertrain can do 20 km on pure electric mode at an average speed of 48 kmph.
The McLaren P1 is the firm’s third road-going car after the iconic McLaren F1 and the MP4 12-C. The car will be fighting for fame with the Ferrari F150 which also breaks cover on the same day as the P1.
Come March 5 and petrolheads from all over the world would have a visual feast as three supercars, the P1, the F150 and a mysterious raging bull from Lamborghini, are set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, within hours of each other!
