McLaren P1 receives the Gemballa GForged-one wheels

Article by Christian A., on December 23, 2013

In our vision, the McLaren P1 is almost the perfect hypercar and we thing that a tuning programme for it would be just a waste of time. Still, Gemballa surprised us today with some photos showing the McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar with a new set of wheels. The P1 was fitted with a new set of special forged wheels called GForged-one.

This makes Gemballa the GForged-one. For those who don’t know, the standard McLaren P1 uses 19-inch wheels on the front and 20-inch wheels on the rear. The new Gemballa wheels are lighter but also bigger: 20-inch on the front and 21-inch on the rear. As you can see from the photos, the new wheels feature widely spaced twin-spoke pairs shaped into sleek Vs.

As a result, the braking components are clearly visible and another stylistic feature in the overall impression. Customers who are interested in buying these wheels are able to choose between a total of four surface finishes The available shades are Gunmetal or Black Magic – either in a full-surface finish or "diamond cut". The latter option represents an especially elegant alternative to front polishing.

Under the hood, everything remains the same: a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine rated at 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque, an electric motor delivering 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque and a dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox, which delivers the power to the rear wheels.

With a total amount 916 hp (674 kW), the McLaren P1 hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and 300 km/h (186 mph) in under 17 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h or 217 mph. If you want one, you'd better know that the McLaren P1 is already sould out!
