McLaren P1 REVEALED, successor to the F1



Quote:
Like an orange pile of cocaine, the newest speed catalyst from supercar manufacturer McLaren has just been released: the P1.

Set to unseat current icons like the Bugatti Veyron, McLaren’s successor to the legendary F1 is rumored to cost Ł800,000 and will get its in-person debut later this month during the Paris Motor Show. Specific details about the car are still unconfirmed, but the automaker says it has one goal for the wheeled weapon; being the best driver’s car in the world on both the street and track.

“Our aim is not necessarily to be the fastest in absolute top speed but to be the quickest and most rewarding series production road car on a circuit,” McLaren Automotive managing director Antony Sheriff said. “It is the true test of a supercar’s all round ability and a much more important technical statement. Our goal is to make the McLaren P1 the most exciting, most capable, most technologically advanced and most dynamically accomplished supercar ever made.”

Despite power specifications not being available, it’s already known that the car will harbor the same 3.8-liter V8 as it’s lesser 12C cousin, though with much more power. All that remains to be seen now is how it will actually stack up to other wildly priced supercars. Rumors suggest the car will offer 960 hp.

“The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage,” McLaren Automotive executive chairman Ron Dennis said. ”Twenty years ago we raised the supercar performance bar with the McLaren F1 and our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again.”

Idk, but it looks too much futuristic for this decade. Maybe after 7-10 years it will be ok.

Looks like a modernized version of the F1, which was ahead of its time as well. The McLaren MP4-12C was a huge hit and remains a fantastic car and excellent choice over a Ferrari. Im sure the P1 will be just as popular for those who can afford the price tag. Im just curious to see how many they build, as their was only 25 F1's.
