McLaren P1 Track Ready Car Rumored
McLaren is rumored to launch a special track version of its P1 hypercar. It seems that some P1 owners are interested in a track-only version of the hypercar and asked the company to consider such a model. Still, it is reported that the new models is in early stages of development but what’s more interesting is that only the P1 owners will be able to buy such a model.
Dubbed P1 Track, the new track-focused hypercar will receive suspension upgrades, more power but also an extreme bodywork. Todate McLaren has sold 375 units of the P1 hypercar which costs USD1,150,000 (1 million euros) so expect the P1 Track car to be even more expensive.
In the standard form, the McLaren P1 hypercar uses a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that generates 737hp and 720Nm of torque, but it also has an electric motor that develops 179hp and 260Nm of torque.
With a total output of 916hp and a dual-clutch 7-speed gearbox that delivers the power to the rear wheels, the McLaren P1 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in under 3.0 seconds, to 200km/h in under 7 seconds and to 300km/h in 17 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h.
