MCLAREN P1 PRICING AND PERFORMANCE
Final pieces of P1 jigsaw revealed by McLaren along with new images of finished car
More importantly, we’ve finally been a better idea of the new car’s performance figures, though McLaren is still staying tight-lipped on exact figures. 0-62mph will take “less than three seconds”, 0-125mph “under seven seconds”, and 0-186mph (300km/h, in case you were wondering) will come up in “less than 17 seconds” – 23 per cent faster than the McLaren F1. Top speed, meanwhile, will be electronically limited to 217mph.
Ferrari’s F150 – although it has to be noted that that’s a car about which Ferrari has officially revealed very little thus far, in stark contrast to McLaren’s drip-feed approach.
We’ve also been told how much the P1 will cost when it arrives: £866,000, to be precise. As expected, it’ll be exclusive, too; just 375 examples will be produced. The official reveal – at which point, we hope, we’ll be given the full spec on the new car, as well as an idea of its on-sale date – will take place at next week’s Geneva Motor Show. Naturally, we’ll bring you all the details as we get them.
