First McLaren P1 hypercar crashed in Dallas, Texas

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 27, 2014

If you love cars just like we do, you better not read this article or see the pictures in the photo gallery as you ill get a pain in the hearth. A McLaren P1 hypercar has just been crashed in Dallas, Texas and these are the first photos with the crashed vehicle.

We don’t have any details but looking at the photos we can understand that the vehicle was speeding and somehow, the driver lost control of his car.

The result is pretty obvious as both the front and rear are heavily damaged, but the good news is that the driver seems alright as the vehicle looks pretty ok on his side. We don’t know if the P1 had a passenger too, but if it did we are quite worried about him/her because the right door was heavily damaged.

As you may know already, McLaren said that it will produce only 375 P1s and this means that now, only 374 vehicles are will be available. For those who don’t know yet, the McLaren P1 is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque.

In addition, the hypercar carries an electric motor, producing 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque. The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 916 hp and all that power is delivered to the rear wheels through the dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox.

This monster is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in no more than 17 seconds. Top speed is 350 km/h or 217 mph.
