(VIDEO) McLaren P1 revealed in Geneva, specifications of the hybrid supercar06 March 2013
Update of February 22nd article with new images and video live from the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
We knew that McLaren was working on a new supercar above the MP4-12C, the preliminary specs just landed, the McLaren P1 will be powered by a hybrid V8!
In detail its 3.8l V8 derived from the MP4-12C goes from 600 to 737hp with 720Nm while a 179hp and 260Nm electric motor directly placed under the V8 offers additional power for a total output of 916hp and 900nm in peak and only to the rear wheels!
The transmission is handled by a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and emissions are expected below 200g/km!
Plug-in hybrid, the 96kg battery placed between the seats and the engine recharges in 2 hours and an electric-only mode "E-mode" allows 10km of range.
The P1 offers technological innovations directly derived from the experience gained in F1 as the DRS (Drag Reduction System) which reduces drag by 23% via a simple push on a button, or the IPAS (Instant Power Assist System).
This car is placed in all respects as a competitor of the 918 Spyder and "LaFerrari" F150 therefore its price is set accordingly £866.000, or just over € 1.000.000!
