McLaren P1 Supercar On Test
McLaren is conducting the final development tests of the P1 supercar. To prove that, the Brits have unveiled the first footage of the upcoming production P1 model without camouflage.
In the pictures below the British supercar is being tested in Arizona, California and Nevada. According to McLaren, in those areas the temperatures exceeded 52 degrees Celsius. In these conditions, McLaren worked closely to their technical partners in order to “develop and engineer bespoke products and solutions for a car that challenges what has been produced previously, redefining the boundaries for high performance cars.”
Just a note, the McLaren P1 comes with a hybrid power train that uses a twin-turbo 3.8 liter V8 engine combined with an electric motor that can produce 179 horsepower and 260 Nm peak of torque. In total, the power output is 916 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. The McLaren P1 supercar can sprint from stand still to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds and the top speed has been clocked at 350 km/h.
