The McLaren P1: Redefining the Million Hypercar

on 26 February, 2013 at

In the automotive world, patience is a virtue. Toyota spent sweet time teasing the of the FR-S/GT86/BRZ and even took years to deliver the LFA to us, after decided to swap the aluminum panels for carbon fiber. spent over a combined a century on the four V12 predecessors Countach, Diablo, and Murcielago) to the . So it would seem to be that the a car takes to release, the more it will be as a result.

The company one Bruce McLaren founded is no to the waiting game. After of the F1 back in 1992, it took over two decades to follow it up it s successor, the P1 you see before you on these We re glad to see that the car hasn t too much from the concept at last year s Paris Show and now that we ve got some on the numbers, we re really excited to see it at the upcoming Geneva Motor Welcome to the 2013 McLaren P1 .

If you ve been living under a or frozen in carbonite and are still with the P1 . aerodynamics is the absolute of the game. Every angle of the P1 that it was designed in a wind and then re-designed again and Most likely by men with and in pristine white lab coats clipboards.

McLaren actually about collecting feedback various potential customers after the P1 concept reveal in and the overwhelming response was to maintain the s appearance so they did. we have something to thank the 1% for all.

As a result of this aerodynamics study, the P1 carves out the air in with a cD of 0.34 which isn t all brilliant until you consider it produces over 1300lbs of . This figure (which is 5x the of the MP4-12C) is generated through the use of active aero pieces on and the car, a Drag Reduction (DRS) rear spoiler can adjust to a maximum attack of 29 degrees, and extensive use of the McLaren in ducting design. Kidding. of.

The P1 was created to become the  and most rewarding series car on a circuit and to do so, McLaren has outfitted the car the M838T 3.8L twin-turbo V8 and a effective electric motor to a combined 903HP (727 petrol and 176 from electricity) and of torque. McLaren says combination will help instantaneous throttle response the entire rev range much a naturally aspirated engine deliver. Purportedly, the P1 will be capable of a full electric mode for up to 12 miles, more enough for, I quote, an to drive to a city centre, dinner, and return home .

To store all the potential energy by the potent motor combination, has built and packaged a 212lb battery unit directly the carbon fiber chassis. As any user will tell battery packs can get real real fast, so McLaren has the coolant flow to ensure each individual battery will remain at the same at any given time. That s serious engineering shenanigans there.

In the end, with the aid of McLaren s Power Assist System . which we are still sorting out the of, the P1 will accelerate from in under three seconds, in under 17 seconds, and will all the way up to it s limited top speed of 217MPH. seems to imply that ECU fiddling will unlock the top speed potential of the car, that will remain to be by any intrepid owners. While the P1 was designed to compete with the speed of the Bugatti Veyron . we wouldn t be surprised to find an top speed somewhere around the neighborhood.

Ferrari Electric Cars

The interior of such a designed car should express design philosophy and that is the case in the P1. With a fighter digital dash and a full canopy overhead, the P1 carries on the of super/hypercars influenced by aviation Unlacquered carbon fiber is exposed throughout the cabin, on the overarching performance theme and roughly 3.3lbs without all the resin.

With the car s purpose so well the P1 will come with everything standard and by everything we climate control, satellite and some premium audio That s it. Any other options to be on the car are completely unique and will to be done through the McLaren Operations team.

So if you really to be able to hear what date is saying while her feet on the exposed carbon you might have to spring for sound deadening by way of MSO.

To customers even more of racing feel, the P1 s steering was designed through an extensive involving many a McLaren champion . Various racing grips were modeled in scanned in carbon fiber, and clad with some If you ever get the chance to take of the P1 s wheel, know that you ll be onto racing history for life. Purists will take note that the McLaren F1 s central seating has been done away but we think the steering wheel will help them about it.

To lay down the aforementioned horsepower and times, the P1 relies on a bespoke set of P-Zero Corsas that most definitely cost a penny were you to hoon and do some awe-inspiring donuts. McLaren F1 partner, Akebono . is for bringing the P1 to a standstill and to do so, they fitted the P1 with unique ceramic discs which is extraordinary until you consider this specific carbon has only seen duty on spacecraft . The undoubtedly expensive has superior heat dissipation and even features a thin layer on both brake surfaces to provide the smoking hot mirrored finish above.

The world s elite are really to regarding automobiles for this year. With the Ferrari (or F150 or whatever it will end up designated) to be released at Geneva, 918 . Lamborghini s rumored Geneva and now the McLaren P1 . it s never been a time to be loaded with and you ll have to be if you want a P1. With 375 total copies being at a base price of $1.2M, the P1 truly put their owners up on the elite pedestal. Fortunately, we can all to dream
