The P1 was the star of the recent McLaren event that was held at the legendary Spa Circuit. The one-brand event featured the entire marques lineup including the manufactures latest addition, the 650S, but all eyes were on the 3 P1s in attendance. The cars and their owners were given the opportunity to blast round the Formula 1 circuit that has been carved through the Arden Forest. The video below captured the highlights of a black P1 in action on track!
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.
