A Qatari McLaren P1 has arrived in Paris! The car is owned by the son of the owner of the famous Royal Monceau Palace Hotel. The yellow P1 looks brilliant against its contrasting black wheels and carbon fibre parts. Here we have a video of the car being revved, albeit rather lightly!
The McLaren P1 will travel from zero to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds, zero to 200 km/h in under 7 seconds, and zero to 300 km/h in no more than 17 seconds. This is thanks, in part to the Instant Power Assist System (IPAS) which is essentially KERS, for road cars. Putting the 300 km/h statistic into perspective, this is 11 seconds faster than the legendary McLaren F1 road car. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h.
