McLaren P1 packs in 903 hp

EPIC power.

McLaren makes some exceptionally cool and high-performance automobiles and has for a number of years. The company's latest car is the P1 and the company has been slowly teasing fans with shots of the interior and the exterior. McLaren has now offered up the details on exactly how much power the beast of a car makes.

The total horsepower number is 903, let that sink in for a minute. The 3.8-liter turbocharged V-8 engine reduces 727 hp and 531 pound-feet of torque on its own. The additional power comes from a KERS system connected to the engine.

That system and then another 176 hp and 192 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle also has something called instant power assist system, which honestly sounds like another description for the KERS system to me. I can't wait to hear performance numbers for the vehicle and I'm still not sold on the design.
