MSO creates unique McLaren P1 with Gulf racing livery

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 22, 2014

We’ve seen lots of McLaren P1 models, some of them wearing crazy colours while some were specially customized by McLaren Special Operations (MSO). Still, the custom McLaren P1 commissioned by Miles Nadal, the well-known businessman and philanthropist, is by far the most impressive version created by McLaren Special Operations.

As you can see from the photo, the P1 hypercar features a special finish inspired by the Gulf racing livery from the iconic 1997 McLaren F1 GTR Longtail. Just like the racing car, the McLaren P1 features a blue and orange exterior theme that extends from the nose all the way to the active rear wing.

Moreover, behind the wheels we find orange calipers for the Akebono carbon ceramic brakes. In addition, the custom McLaren P1 features a subtle orange pinstriping detail to the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. Same theme is continued at the interior where we find bespoke controls and seat details.

Under the hood, we find the same 3.8-liter V8 engine that produces 737 hp and 720 Nm, as well as an electric motor delivering 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 916 hp, while power is delivered to the rear wheels through the dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox.

For those who don’t know, the McLaren P1 is able to accelerate from 0 to 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 17 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h or 217 mph.
