McLaren hung the sign “sold out” of the fantastic P1 it is more than two years. It hung when they had barely gone a few units from the factory. McLaren today announced that production – limited to just 375 units – has been completed in a formal manner. And with the end of production of the McLaren P1 can terminate the current generation of hiperdeportivos – the more media – with two bright Porsche 918 Spyder and LaFerrari. Give way to new battles hybrid height of the nearest, between Koenigsegg and Bugatti.
Ferrari has manufactured 500 units of the LaFerrari, and Porsche has made 918 of 918 Spyder. The P1 is the most scarce.
The McLaren P1 has been in production for two whole years. Was launched something before that LaFerrari and something after the Porsche 918 Spyder. Mechanically, it is in a position to “middle”. With many quotes, understood. Your engine 3.8 V8 twin-turbocharging and 738 HP supplemented by an electric motor with 178 HP, which brought the total power of the system to an impressive 916 HP. It is something more powerful than the Porsche 918 Spyder – 898 CV – and something less powerful than a LaFerrari, whose total power was of 963 CV.
despite its lack of power compared to the Ferrari and the advantage of all-wheel drive of the Porsche 918 Spyder, several tests have shown that it is the fastest circuit, albeit by a narrow margin. When the electric motor positioned between the V8 engine and the gearbox, support the power delivery is very direct and controllable. For example, the Porsche 918 Spyder has an electric motor propelling only the front wheels. The set P1 has also been extraordinary.
Its value will be appreciated very substantial now, and each unit which is put for sale will be news.
in Addition to the 375 units of production, McLaren has built 21 units of development which include three cars of pre-production. Can any of these cars put to sale in the future, although one should take into account that have been subjected to more than 600,000 km of testing on all types of terrain and weather conditions. In addition to the 375 P1 “serial” are being manufactured 35 P1 GTR, a career-client to which only the current owners of a P1 can access.
Built and maintained by MSO (McLaren Special Operations), it is 50 kilograms lighter than a P1 serial – weighing 1.497 kilograms – and your power is 1,000 HP combined. It is possible that some will be converted to drive street by its owner, McLaren will not make it official. As before I anticipated, the P1 has been the ultimate supercar of the “Holy Trinity” in stop occur. The battle now is recrudecerá between future Bugatti Chiron and Koenigsegg Regera, which will be the high performance to a new level.
