The McLaren P1 is without a doubt of one of the most eagerly anticipated cars of the decade, customer deliveries and last week we reported on Jay Leno receiving his car, the first in the USA.
Here we have another delivery in the US, the first Azure Blue example to be delivered. The car looks brilliant in its darker shade of blue against the black wheels.
By now, you surely don’t need reminding of just how important this car is. But if you do, here are some key details. Under the carbon fiber hood is a twin powerplant generating 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 300 km/h 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.
