McLaren opened its flagship showroom in Malaysia in October 2013, in partnership with Sime Darby Motors that also owns the British automaker’s outlets in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Since then, McLaren’s presence in Malaysia has increased significantly and the first range-topping P1 was seen in the Asian country last year, around the same time when the first and the only Maserati MC12 was spotted.
It was purchased by the son of the Sultan of Johor and features crafted gold wheels, gold McLaren emblem and interior trims, a beautiful engine cover shield in gold and a 24 carat gold-plated exhaust shield that was used in the McLaren F1. After that, two more units of the P1 quickly arrived on the shores, one with yellow exterior and the other with white exterior and a red MSO sticker.
Now recently, we came across pictures of the fourth P1 in Malaysia. It is finished in orange with the chassis number 128. With this model’s arrival, there are twice as many P1s in Malaysia as the Ferrari LaFerrari, all being part of the growing list of exotics in the country.
As we all know, the hybrid supercar utilises a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 coupled with an electric motor good for a combined 903 hp and 978 Nm of torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The P1 can reach 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of the 395 km/h.
