McLaren P1 With MSO Pacific Blue Paintwork
This 2014 P1 was specially commission by its owner to have a MSO Pacific Blue Paintwork
For supercar lovers looking for a rare unit to own and probably never drive, here is a McLaren P1 you might want to have in your living room as a show piece.
It is already a well known fact that the P1, very fast and desirable, is not the most reliable supercar to own and that’s why the owner of this McLaren P1 has done so little mileage.
The owner ordered his P1 in MSO Pacific Blue, a highly dynamic, iridescent paint that shifts colors depending on the light and viewing angle.
This P1 was ordered with over £73,000 (which is about RM403,000) in optional extras, including purple contrast stitching and satin-finish carbon fiber to match the £33,580 (which is about RM185,000) MSO Pacific Blue paintwork.
This single-owner P1 has the chassis number 117 which is out of 375 units built by McLaren Cars UK. It has just 2,900 miles on the odometer (reliability and worry of being scratched when on the road) and has been regularly serviced, with a scheduled service carried out by the McLaren Ascot dealership.
Interestingly, this rather unique McLaren is now open for bidding at Sothebys auction house and you can click here to get all the necessary information.
Meanwhile, the McLaren P1 is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 hybrid engine that generates 903hp and 900Nm of torque, paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission that drives the rear wheels.
Furthermore, the McLaren provided performance figures confirms that the P1 can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph.
In case you were wondering, a stock used P1 sells from USD2.9 million today which is about RM12.87 million Ringgit before local taxes are included.
PRESS RELEASE: McLaren Automotive is a creator of luxury, high-performance sports cars and supercars.
Every vehicle is hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, Surrey, England.
Launched in 2010, the company is now the largest part of the McLaren Group.
The company has three defined product families: Sports Series, Super Series and Ultimate Series which are retailed through over 80 retailers in 30 markets around the world.
McLaren is a pioneer that continuously pushes the boundaries. In 1981, it introduced lightweight and strong carbon fibre chassis into Formula 1 with the McLaren MP4/1. Then in 1993 it designed and built the McLaren F1 road car – the company has not built a car without a carbon fibre chassis since. As part of the Ultimate Series, McLaren was the first to deliver a hybrid hypercar, the McLaren P1™.
Announced at Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2018, the company’s Track25 business plan will see it invest £1.2billion in research and development to deliver 18 new cars or derivatives by the end of 2025.
2017 saw the company launch further models including the second-generation Super Series, the 570S Spider and the McLaren Senna. In 2018, the company launched the 600LT and the McLaren Speedtail, the next Ultimate Series and McLaren’s first ever Hyper-GT of which only 106 will be produced.
To support the development, engineering and manufacture of its range of innovative sports cars and supercars, McLaren Automotive partners with world leading companies to provide specialist expertise and technology. These include AkzoNobel, Kenwood, Pirelli and Richard Mille.
