NEWS: McLaren P1™ Fast Facts & Figures. Oh as well as £866,000 cost tag!
More details have emerged on the amazing McLaren P1™– a lesson in hypercars coming from the planet’s most anal as well as awesome car builders, with the most immaculate F1 win record. Not to mention being a lesson in car launching technique. The crescendo drip feed of facts, figure, images as well as info. has been superb. Bravo marketing as well as PR team.
So, headlines This specific week in McLaren P1™world? Well, thanks to the Instant Power Assist System (IPAS), the McLaren P1™will be 23% faster than the legendary McLaren F1 – blitzing 0-62mph in under three seconds as well as 0-300 km/h (186mph in old money!) in less than 17 seconds, which will be quite quick (all 5 seconds faster than the McLaren F1 in fact)! The top speed has been limited to 217mph (350 KM/h in fresh money). Only 375 will be made, doing which super exclusive. yet which’ll cost you, at £866,000 OTR, or track! as well as McLaren says the production design will be almost unchanged coming from the original design study, which will be impressive too. McLaren has been engaging with potential customers actively within the last few months to get their views on the McLaren P1™, about the vehicle’s styling. Their unanimous verdict on the styling was not to change the car presented last September in Paris. So unusually, the McLaren P1™ has translated to production form with very little change. In fact just one, the addition of LTR ducts ahead of each of the front wheels to further aid cooling as well as optimise downforce.
The options list will be limited to only bespoke content which a customer might wish to add through McLaren Special Operations, as well as fitted luggage… naturally.
As already announced, the McLaren P1™ will contain the combined force of two highly-efficient powerplants, offering the optimum mix of superb throttle response, day-to-day drivability as well as top speed. A mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine will be substantially enhanced featuring, for example, larger turbochargers as well as a highly effective electric motor, to give a combined output of 916PS (903 bhp) as well as a maximum torque figure of 900Nm. This specific ensures instantaneous throttle response through the rev range, more akin to a naturally aspirated engine. Emissions of less than 200g/km on the combined cycle are reduced to zero in full electric drive mode, while the Formula 1-derived DRS as well as IPAS technologies offer an increase in straight-line speed as well as an instant boost of power.
The tyres fitted to the McLaren P1™ are specially developed P Zero Corsas, which have been developed with McLaren’s technology partner, Pirelli. The team at Pirelli has been involved throughout the entire development programme, as well as This specific has seen the tyre testing phase integrated into the schedule, as a key performance component. The final compound as well as construction has been developed as well as optimised during testing, as well as the end result will be a tyre which will be finely tuned specifically to the performance as well as handling characteristics.
To rein within the power produced by the twin powerplants, the McLaren P1™ will be designed to offer braking performance more associated which has a GT3 or sports racing car. Developed by McLaren’s Formula 1 partner Akebono, the system features a fresh type of carbon ceramic disc, which has previously seen service in space, yet never before used on a road car. Stronger than conventional carbon ceramic, the material dissipates heat more effectively, giving the highly efficient braking system exceptional stopping as well as cooling capability. The system also boasts significantly reduced weight, as well as a bespoke ceramic layer coats both friction surfaces to give an attractive mirrored finish.
One surprising eco-feature will be which the vehicle can also be driven solely in electric mode. In city driving, with an average speed of 30 mph, This specific could mean up to a 20km range. More than enough for an owner to enter, for example, a city centre Zero Emissions Zone, have dinner as well as return home.
Can you wait? We can’t. fresh Top Gear lap record? Yup! Nopt to mention a whole host of some other accolades…
Bravo. the planet today needs the McLaren P1™don’t you think?
