From the same manufacturer as the legendary F1, the P1 might just live up the insane legacy of the first 230 mph production car. Lurking underneath the carbon fiber is a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 which when paired with the onboard electric motor is good for 903 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque.
The right way to think about this isn’t even as a hybrid, but like a roadgoing Formula 1 car with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System. This will help you get over the fact that you can only get 9 miles on the battery.
Straight ahead speed isn’t quite as lunatic as it was on the F1, with the top speed limited to a measly 217 mph. But it will get you to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds, and make it from 0-182 in 16.5 seconds, twice as fast as Ferrari 458 Italia. It will also grip and brake like the amazing Spiderman on PEDs.
McLaren has gone all out on the quality control, when engineers test the waterproof seals the car is doused in nearly 4,000 gallons of water.If you want one, act now because they just went into production and most of the 375 are spoken for.
