This extremely rare McLaren P1 MSO in matte black is looking for a new owner

As there are only 375 McLaren P1s in the world and all of them have been completely sold out, McLaren’s hybrid hypercar is truly one of its kind. But what if we tell you there is one that actually stands out among all the McLaren P1s out there? Not only that, it has also increased in market value bearing in mind the $1.3M price tag that initially came with the P1.

Currently on sale at James Edition is an extremely unique example of McLaren P1 by McLaren Special Operations. Its seller, Premium Automotive Concept, is based in Germany and has been selling it with a listed price of €2.170.000 (or approximately 2,561.468 USD).

The owner of this particularly rare example had first ordered it in matte black as you can see from the photo. But then the rest of its body panels are finished either in carbon fiber or gloss black as well, making it stand out all the more from any regular P1s we’ve seen before.

Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 GTR up for auction at RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba

Held every two years since 2011, RM Sotheby’s Villa Erba alongside the shores of Lake Como in Italy, will be putting up for auction an impressive trio of hybrid hypercars on the 27th of May. The trio consists of: a Ferrari LaFerrari, a road-legal conversion of the McLaren P1 GTR, and a Porsche 918 Spyder. In the past three events they have held, the auction house has never had these three hypercars, all at the same time. So for those of you who have a lot saved in the bank, it’s your chance to bid on these bad boys.

Let us get into the details of each one. First, the LaFerrari has a classic Ferrari body paint of a Rosso Corsa red and black accents on the roof and side mirrors. As for the interior, it comes with matching black leather and crimson details. It only has 112 miles (180 kilometers) of mileage, since it was first bought in 2014, and after having two owners. This model has an estimated market price of €2.65 million to €3.2 million euros.

Up next would be the McLaren P1 GTR. This 986 horsepower (725 kilowatt) hypercar features the LM conversion by Lanzante Motorsport. Being just one of ten models that have been converted into a road-legal track-only hypercar, this one has got to be pricey. Another factor that has raised the price is the fact that it has only been driven 224 miles. The auction house estimates this one to be priced at €3.2 million to €3.6 million.

A road-legal McLaren P1 GTR up for grabs online for only $4.3 million

One of these track-only cars is McLaren’s P1 GTR. McLaren decided it be best that the P1 GTR be a limited-edition vehicle and built only 45 examples of this monstrous machine. The road-legal P1 is a member of the Hypercar Holy Trinity alongside the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918. Now imagine the power of that street-legal car and the monstrosity that is the P1 GTR – the latter being the most chosen one for performance enthusiasts.

Now, in a way, it won’t be a waste if the P1 GTR was constantly found on various circuits in the world, but it would be a lost opportunity for an enthusiast not to be able to witness the power hidden in this vicious track beast. So, what better way to witness the splendor of the P1 GTR than to submit it to a conversion specialist. It’s a tough task, but it’s what their engineers are trained to do.

Over time, the number of converted P1 GTR’s has increased. Although there hasn’t been any confirmed ratio of track-only versus converted P1 GTR’s, it seems like more and more owners are sending their goodies out to conversion specialists. For whatever reason these conversions are for, we wouldn’t know, but what we’re pretty sure is that it will cost more than it originally did.

Most People Do Not Know These Facts about the McLaren P1

Ferrari and McLaren have been in close competition with each other for as long as most of us could remember. First there was their constant rivalry to achieve first place in the Formula 1 arena. The competition extended into the production of road-worthy supercars.

Through this constant struggle to become the best of the best, these automakers have (for the most part) created several of the most powerful vehicles of this generation. One of those vehicles is McLaren’s F1 which has outperformed its competitors and that which to this day would still be a vicious contender to modern day supercars.

However, the most celebrated amongst the McLaren cars is the one that took about twenty two years for the McLaren Formula One engineers to actually conceptualize. This vehicle is none other than the McLaren P1, the car to complete the hypercar trinity. At a base price of more than a million dollars, it is expected that this vehicle is the best of the best.

The McLaren F1 GTR was the first McLaren that was able to use the GTR moniker and has further brought glory to the British Formula One team after winning the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours. It is one of the most significant cars that have brought the McLaren name its rightful spot as one of the world’s best racers.

But wait, there’s more. McLaren has yet again brought forth to this world another track weapon that will leave its competitors eating dust. In 2015, McLaren introduced another powerful track monster straight from the geniuses of its engineers – the McLaren P1 GTR. McLaren’s team of engineers has extracted more power and performance from the already-great P1. They set lose the track weapon that is the GTR version.

The P1 GTR is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of producing a whopping 986 horsepower and that can speed up from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. It features the Drag Reduction System on the large fixed rear wing which was derived from the Formula 1. To reduce aerodynamic drag, the wing mirrors are repositioned to the A pillars in such a way that it gets closer to the driver’s line of sight. The car is suspended by 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels and comes with an all-new “straight cut twin pipe design” exclusive only for GTR models.

A gray McLaren P1 crashed at a highway near Hangzhou City in China. The right-rear and the left-front parts of the vehicle were severely damaged. A Chinese Buick LaCrosse was also hit.

According to observations, the McLaren P1 hit the Buick LaCrosse, which explains the left-front damage. The former then steered away, damaging the right-rear. However, details of the accident and its cause are still unclear. On a positive note, the driver is safe.

This recent tragedy is another addition to the long list of supercar accidents in China, which has led many to conclude that the country is barely ready for high-powered supercars.

For a long time, top speed has been the basis in measuring a vehicle’s capability and performance. However, this has become an impractical way since performance cars simply cannot achieve such a speed outside the test track due to road conditions and structure.

Thus, quickness in acceleration becomes a better measure. In terms or racing, it is more practical to record the time it takes for a car to get to a certain speed; standard international scale go by 0 to 100 kilometers or an equivalent 0 to 62 miles per hour while American vehicles us the 60 mph standard.

The ability of a car to get itself to speed up from around a corner is a more significant factor to consider than how it is able to start off at full speed but having to slow down when it comes to a corner.

Seven limited edition McLaren P1 GTR racecars blazed through the tracks of the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain for the first time. The seven owners fortunate to have purchased the P1 GTR took on the challenging circuit as part of McLaren’s P1 Driver Programme, with a dedicated pit crew waiting to service their exclusive track-only vehicle.

Under the P1 GTR Driver Programme, McLaren seeks to train the owners themselves in piloting what is described as the most exclusive and most powerful track-only model ever produced by the Formula 1 brand.

In the programme, drivers can get access, first of all, to specialized training aimed to make them proficient in piloting the McLaren P1 GTR in the racetrack. They also get to try out their cars safely using McLaren’s racing simulator before they get in the cockpit of the P1 GTR.

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.

MSO (McLaren Special Operations) has just unveiled their latest project, a custom McLaren P1 wearing a beautiful Volcano Red finish. Despite the impressive design and the special color, this McLaren P1 also comes with bespoke touches such as a 24 carat gold plated exhaust heat shield and wheels wearing a black paint.

The engine remains unchanged, which means that we will find the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that produces 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque. Moreover, the vehicle also carries an electric motor that generates 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 916 hp and as a result, the P1 is able to hit 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 less than 17 seconds.

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 expected, McLaren officially introduced at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance the design concept of the P1 GTR. The new vehicle will be the successor of the iconic McLaren F1 GTR, which began testing 20 years ago in order to get ready for the 1995 GT season. Produced by McLaren Special Operations, the P1 GTR is a track-only vehicle and doesn’t need to meet the legislations in order to become road legal.

As a result, McLaren’s P1 GTR will be fitted with slick tires, a fixed ride height, a fixed rear wing as well as an ERS-style push-to-pass system. As you can see from the photos, the new vehicle is based on the McLaren P1 road car but suffered big changes such as an increased front track (+80 mm), a more aggressive GT-style front splitter, reprofiled low temperature radiator ducts and active aerodynamic flaps.

There is an additional aerodynamic blade located behind the wheelarch that cleans the air from the front tires. An additional side panel at the rear brings air into the high temperature radiator and improves the aerodynamic performance of the rear floor.

For this year’s 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, McLaren Special Opeartions (MSO) returns with two bespoke models of the McLaren P1 and the 650S Spider. The special McLaren P1 was already commissioned by a North American customer and features an exclusive Stirling Grey exterior finish, while at the front, silver finishing to the aluminum radiator grilles sit below the gloss carbon fiber bumper.

The hood carries the McLaren Orange speedmark. Seen from the side, we observe the orange black calipers and the ‘P1’ logo which carries the same colour. At the rear, we find 24 carat gold heatshields around the engine bay and Inconel exhaust, as well as the dark paintwork and Satin Nickel-finished Stealth Pack.

The rear wing is finished in the same Stirling Grey colour making a contrast with the upper sections of the wing pistons finished in orange. Inside, the P1 comes with carbon fiber and Alcantara, while the carbon fiber sport buckets are fitted with a four-point harness.

If you are looking for an affordable supercar and still want to buy the sold-out McLaren P1 we have good news. Lego enthusiasts did it again and created a scale model of the McLaren P1. So, instead of over 1 million euros you will pay let’s say just 100 euros.

Although the design of the McLaren P1 is way too impressive and way too difficult to replicate it using just Lego pieces we admit that the result isn’t too bad. I guess you have to be a real expert to create this vehicle and spend few days paying attention to the real car.

Still, the engine is does not resemble the real 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that generates 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque.

As you may know already, Ferrari has quite a tradition with its track-focused XX models such as the 599 XX or the Enzo XX. Last week we’ve told you that Ferrari is working hard on the LaFerrari XX and it might offer it with a turbocharged V6 engine inspired by the one used by its Formula 1 team.

It appears that Ferrari isn’t the only manufacturer that is considering track-focused versions of its supercars as McLaren is rumored to launch a special track version of its P1 hypercar.

According to Autocar, several Mclaren P1 owners are interested in a track-only version of the hypercar and asked the company to consider such a model. Still, it is reported that the new models is in early stages of development but what’s more interesting is that only the P1 owners will be able to buy such a model.

Last year, McLaren officially introduced the P1 hypercar and we were amazed by its looks as well as by its performances on the road. Back in November, we reported that the vehicle was already sold out but due to the fact that about 75 percent of P1 customers have chosen some unique designs from McLaren Special Operations, the company didn’t built too many vehicles in 2013.

By November 2013, McLaren built only 12 P1s. For those who don’t know, McLaren will only build 375 units, each priced at over 1 million euros. Because it is the main year in which McLaren will deliver the P1 hypercars, company’s Chief Financial Officer Paul Buddin said that the carmakers expects quite a strong impact in its turnover and profits.

Still, McLaren has bigger plans as it will introduce a new model every year as it seeks to triple its sales within two or three years. Buddin expects revenues to be double this year from 2013, but he did not disclose any numbers. Taking in consideration the fact that the company spends between 60 to 70 million pounds (about 70 to 80 million euros) each year on product development, we expect the privately owned company to be very profitable.

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.
