McLaren: 10 years of P1 are celebrated


McLaren celebrates 10 years of the P1, the hybrid hypercar presented at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The English sports car, powered by a 737 HP V8 3.8 engine with dual supercharging, combined with a 179 HP electric motor, for a total power of 916 HP, sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, reaches 200 km/h from a standing start in 6.8 seconds, it does 0-300 km/h in 16.5 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 350 km/h.
Furthermore, it boasts instant throttle response thanks to the support of electrification to the turbo engine, and combines this feature with low weight, as well as particularly accurate aerodynamics with the large rear wing that adjusts automatically.
Thanks to the MonoCage carbon fiber monocoque, an evolution of the MonoCell structure used for the 12C, body panels made with the same material, a 96 kg battery, and other details such as the windscreen only 3.2 mm thick, the minimum weight, dry, is only 1,395 kg. A few months after its launch, precisely in November 2013, all 375 cars had already been assigned, and the last P1 ordered, with pearly orange livery, was completed in December 2015.
Ten years after its arrival, in the same year of the 60th anniversary of the company’s foundation, the P1 is a source of inspiration for new models such as the innovative Artura.
