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.
