McLaren has released new high resolution images of the company’s next-generation supercar, the McLaren P1. The new images is published as part of the build up to the opening of McLaren’s new Manama showroom in Bahrain, ahead of the 2013 Formula One Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix.
The McLaren Manama showroom, located at the Bahrain World Trade Center, is set to become the new landmark for motor racing and car fans alike in Bahrain and the region.
During the McLaren P1’s Middle East debut, the supercar also paid an exclusive visit to the Bahrain International Circuit, where the stunning images were taken.
The P1 is the result of McLaren’s Formula One expertise and its road car development programme, and it represents a whole new level of supercar performance.
At the heart of the mid-engined McLaren P1 is a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 power plant producing 542 kW (737 hp) at 7,500 rpm and 720 Nm of torque from 4,000 rpm. This is combined with an electric motor adding an extra 132 kW (179 hp) and 260Nm of torque. In total, the McLaren P1 has a combined power output of 674 kW (916 hp) and 900 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed twin-clutch Graziano gearbox.
The P1’s insane power figures mean it will rocket from 0 to 100 kph in a blistering 2.8 seconds, while 0-200 kph is accomplished in under seven seconds. It will go on to hit 300 kph in just 17 seconds. Top speed is limited to 350 kph.
The McLaren P1 will carry a hefty price tag of 866,000 GBP (1,313,000 USD or 1,004,800 EUR), making it one of the most expensive supercars in the market.
