McLaren delivers first P1 hypercar, confirms performance figures

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 22, 2013

McLaren made one man very very happy as the first P1 hypercar was delivered to its customer at company’s headquarters in Woking, England. Each McLaren P1 is equipped with a twin powerplant powertrain that generates 916 PS (903 bhp) from its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and a lightweight electric motor.

With these numbers, McLaren P1 sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 16.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h or 217 mph. Despite these numbers, the McLaren P1 hypercar has a fuel consumption of 8.3 l/100 km (34 mpg) on the EU combined cycle and CO2 emissions of just 194 g/km.

The electric motor provides a range of 11 km or 6.8 miles. Braking figures are also impressive as thanks to the specially formulated carbon ceramic discs coated in silicon carbide can stop from P1 from 100 km/h (62 mph) in a distance of 30.2 metres.

“We designed the McLaren P1 from the outset with one clear goal: to be the best driver’s car on road and track. The confirmation of the performance figures underlines this." "I am very proud of our Woking based team and everything they have achieved with this ambitious project.  The handover of the first McLaren P1 is another milestone in our 50 year history," commented Mike Flewitt, CEO, McLaren Automotive Ltd.
