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.
Some McLaren owners are so satisfied with their supercar that they leave it as is, others tune it to celebrate some historical events in the company’s history, and others just want to make it more unique.
Such is the case of this McLaren 675 LT that was customized by MSO, McLaren’s customization division. It was finished in Mexico Blue and looks fantastic, but the paint job is not what makes it special. Can you spot it? Take a close look at the roof!
Yes, it’s got a roof snorkel! The snorkel is probably some sort of homage to the F1 GTR version. The exterior also got carbon fiber vents on the fenders.
The interior features Alcantara leather on the seats and orange accents. The power, however, was left alone and the 675LT is running on the stock 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.
Following the reveal of the track only 675LT at 2015 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren is planning the reveal of an even faster supercar. We’re talking about the McLaren 675LT Spider that is set to make debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
The 675LT Spider has same performance specs as the 675LT Coupe, both get power from a 3.8 liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The difference is that the engine has more than half of its components were replaced to achieve better performance. They optimized the turbos, the exhaust, cylinders heads and fuel pump.
The result of all the fine tuning is a 0-62 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a 203 mph top speed, with a fuel efficiency of 24.1 mpg.
Another feature is the hard top which can retract at speeds up to 19 mph.
The McLaren 675LT Spider features many carbon fiber elements that can be found on front bumper, side skirts, side and lower side intakes, rear fenders, deck, diffuser and LT airbrake. The supercar rides on 19/20-inch wheels front/rear wheels wearing Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires and 20 spoke super-lightweight alloys.
The interior is all Alcantara leather with carbon fiber accents and there is also the hard top which can retract at speeds up to 19 mph.
Some buyers might choose the Club Sport Pack that features 4-point harness and fire extinguisher.
The McLaren 675 LT Spider will be produced in a limited quantity of 500 vehicle with a price of around $430,000 each.
McLaren made only 500 units of their highly expected 675LT model. The bad news is that up until recently you couldn’t buy one for the simple reason of unavailability. All 500 units were sold out.
Recall that the 675LT gets power from a 3.-8liter V8 engine that makes 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. This allows it to reach 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and boast a top speed of 205 mph. It’s easy to understand why everyone wanted one.
And now, the good news. Apparently, Dubai’s Deals on Wheels has this model for sale for $585,337. The dealership is expecting the car to sell very fast even with their markup over the original price of $349,500.
So here you are, this is your chance to get this rare McLaren, even if for a bit more than you’d expect.
Matt Williams, a graduate of the Coventry University, chose to create the McLaren LM5 concept as his final graduation work.
The aim was to obtain a car that would bring the drama and the elegance of McLaren F1 into a whole new perspective, something that McLaren’s MP4-12C supercar failed to realize.
Due to the fact that we are speaking about a F1 car, the entire design was focused on enhancing the on-track functionality. The chassis is even more extreme than the previous McLaren models, bringing the brand into the 21st century.
LM5 fits 3 people, the driver and two passengers, the latter being placed in the back of the centrally positioned driver seat. All three seats are ultra light, so that they don’t burden the car’s weight unnecessarily. The driver has a multifunctional steering wheel, working along with a tachometer.
Williams sees this concept working with a 5 liters V10 engine, provided by BMW. The carbon fiber chassis would certainly contribute to achieving better performances.
The fact that both the past and the present McLaren features are blended in this concept makes us believe that there are chances for this concept to become reality someday.
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.
The new McLaren 570S is such a wanted car that the production to order ratio is 1/1000. Yes, at this point in time just one 570S was built and around 1,000 orders are still waiting to be fulfilled.
The coupe is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8 liter V8 engine that produces 562 hp and 443 pounds per feet of torque. It can get to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 204 mph. The sales price starts at $184,900.
The price for such a supercar is actually affordable which is probably why there are so many people waiting in line to get it and made it a sales hit.
The 570S spearheads McLaren’s Sports Series, with upcoming models such as 540C and a Spider due in 2017.
