The McLaren P1, as we recently found out, is a magnificent car. It is calm, composed and even economical but can be transformed into an angry hybrid beast at the flick of a switch.

The P1′s powerplant generates an astronomical combined output of 903 bhp. It gets a very efficient 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 petrol engine and a lightweight electric motor. The remarkable acceleration, delivered as a result of the instant torque offered by the electric motors and the optimized turbos, results in the hand-built car reaching 100 km/h in a stunning 2.8 seconds, 200 km/h in a scarcely believable 6.8 seconds, and 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 16.5 seconds. This is a staggering 5.5 seconds faster than the legend that is the McLaren F1. Top speed is electronically limited to (just!) 350 km/h.
