McLaren Offers Performance Figures for the P1

The P1 is FAST!!!

McLaren has gone official with the performance figures for its latest supercar called the P1. McLaren says that the car will reach 62 mph in 2.8 seconds. It will reach 124 mph in only 6.8 seconds.

McLaren says that it will blitz the quarter-mile in 9.8 seconds at 152 mph. One of the most impressive figures about the cars that it can go from a standstill to 186 mph in 16.5 seconds. That's a whopping 5.5 seconds faster than McLaren's legendary F1.

McLaren electronically limits the top speed of the vehicle to 217 mph. With a car this fast you need good brakes and McLaren says the car can go from 62 mph to a dead stop and 30 m. The car is also able to drive for 6.8 miles on electricity alone.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed - Day 2
They may not yet be challenging for podiums, but it's no secret that McLaren have been making definite progress in recent races. According to Jenson Button, updates to the MP4-29 at Hockenheim should work even better here in Budapest, and could even give them shot at taking on Williams, whose FW36 is not expected to be so well suited to the tight and twisting Hungaroring. Button chatted about this and more following Friday practice in Hungary ...
