MSO reveals special McLaren P1 finished in Volcano Red

Article by Christian A., on December 1, 2014

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.

Top speed is limited at 350 km/h or 217 mph. What’s more interesting is that the McLaren P1 is able to act as an electric car using just the electric motor and offers a range of up to 20 km (12 miles), while top speed is 50 km/h (30 mph).
