McLaren P1 Gets Official and It's Expensive

Feb 26 2013, 12:02pm CST | by

STARTS at £866,000

After letting details about the new P1 supercar out in a trickle, McLaren has finally offered up all the details on its incredible supercar called the P1. The first is that you need to know is that the car is insanely expensive with a starting price of £866,000. The car will also be incredibly limited in production.

McLaren will only make 375 units. McLaren says the car will be as at home on the racetrack as it is on city streets and the vehicle has a twin turbo V8 paired with a hybrid electric motor. We already knew that the electric system and the gasoline engine combine for over 900 hp. McLaren now says that the car will go 0 to 100 KM/H in under 3 seconds.

The vehicle in production form is virtually unchanged from the original design study. Buyers of the car will be able to choose from a wide variety of colors and interior trim options including bare carbon fiber. McLaren will also offer bespoke options through its Special Operations center. The car is fitted with an impressively high performance braking system that would be at home on a racing car and can drive at up to 30 mph for 20 km on electric power alone.

We all know Craigslist is a great place to buy or sell an affordable car. I'm not so sure it is the best place to buy or sell a not-so-affordable car. But if you have $7,890,000 (you read that correctly, I did not add and extra zero) you can buy a "total ...
