McLaren managed to sell, and deliver to its customers all the P1 models planned for production. So that from the beginning of its career in 2013, 375 units were assembled and all of them are built and worked differently under an extensive customization program for customers’ pleasure!
Even if the cars were already sold shortly after launching their production some buyers were forced to wait months and even years, to get to see their cars in the garage. And that’s because, for each model were consumed at least 800 hours of work, where the environmental components were assembled for 17 days and one day was needed for assembly.
Even the painting could take up to five days when workers around applied 5-8 liters of paint and 8-9 liters of paint. Overall production of a single supercar was involved 105 professional employees and each of them has left their mark on a historical model!
Of the 375 cars produced, 34% were sold in the US, 26% were delivered on the old continent, 13% was accorded to the customers in the Middle East and the African continent, while another 27% reached in Asian countries. On the end of a career, the British have published some pictures first and latest model of McLaren P1 product.
Considering most supercar owners choose regular paint jobs and liveries that look boring, when you see a flashy supercar that takes your breath away, in your eyes it becomes even more expensive, exclusive and supercool.
Such is the case with this stunning P1 GTR that has just arrived in the USA. It is finished in a glossy dark green/orange paint and has a price of $3.1 Million. The GTR version of P1 is much more powerful than the regular supercar. It is powered by a 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 combined with and electric motor that produce a total of 986 hp (+82 hp more than P1).
To be able to handle all that power the P1 GTR has a huge rear wing that confers the supercar a lot of downforce. The position of the wing mirrors was changed to accommodate larger door mounted radiator channels.
Note that this P1 GTR is one of the only 35 units ever made so far.
Yes, the P1 which is no longer being built. Five of these discontinued supercars will be receiving a special edition carbon fiber treatment from McLaren’s Special Operations division.
Originally, it was supposed to be a total of 20 cars, but the number of limited edition was reduced to only five. The edition is dubbed McLaren P1 Carbon Series and will have new carbon fiber body parts, red accents, side skirts, spoiler, rear diffuser and a P1 badge on the front and rear splitter.
These changes will cost around $200,000 and even if the body weight was reduced, it did not improve the performance of the supercar.
Apparently the Carbon Series is a style only edition and it is nice to see the P1 getting a proper farewell with the carbon treatment.
With the final 375th model of McLaren P1 rolling out the factory line, McLaren has officially stopped production of this supercar.
The factory in Woking, UK required 17 full days to build one P1. Each supercar was built according to the owner’s requests so that none of the 375 models look similar.
The last model was finished in a pearlescent orange and features slightly different style if compared to the first model. You can notice subtle changes in carbon fiber weave, splitter, diffuser and some aerodynamic elements.
The P1 #375 is powered by a 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 plus an electric motor, that combined produce around 903 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. This propels the supercar to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds and gives it a top speed of 217 mph.
The Seven Car Lounge dealership in Dubai has a “history” of selling McLarens P1 with zero miles on board as secondhand vehicles. They now have this electric yellow McLaren P1 for sale at an unknown price.
The 903 horsepower supercar is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and is finished in a beautiful yellow and black paint with black interior and yellow seat belts.
Aside from the McLaren P1, the dealership has an arsenal at their disposal, including a Porsche 918 Spider, Maserati MC12 and a Bugatti Veyron.
Both supercars are impressive and very powerful. Not only that, but their power specs are very similar. So much similar that in a head to head race, it might come down to the skill of the driver to decide the winner or loser.
The McLaren P1 has at its disposal 903 hp, 722 lb-ft of torque with top speed of 217 mph. The Porsche 918 Spyder has 887 hp, 944 lb-ft of torque and 211 mph top speed.
With that in mind, which car do you think is better in a half mile race? Which has better launch control?
Watch the video below and find out. Both supercars are on a runway in California and are about to show you who’s the best! Enjoy!
If you happen to go to Italy and have $7.2 million sitting around, you might want to stop by the dealership that sell this car and become its owner.
The dealers claim the supercar is road legal. If this is true it cloud be the only P1 GTR that is not sold by McLaren. They also say that this homologated version was produced by Lazante and that is a very rare car.
According to Lazante, McLaren gave them permission to transform P1 GTR models in cars allowed on public roads.
If you compare the track only P1 GTR with the road legal version, you can spot a few differences. The road version has standard bucket seats and seatbelts (track version has just one seat). It has street legal tires instead of track only but kept the F1 inspired steering wheel.
