What is a McLaren P1?
The heart is the recognizable 3.8-litre V8 biturbo that sees duty in the 12C and 650S, but with bigger turbos to generate 727bhp and 531lb ft. The’leccy bit pushes out 176bhp and 192lb feet (twice the KERS system on a 2013 F1 car), also handily fills in the torque hole left by turbo lag. It drives exclusively to the rear wheels via McLaren’s seven-speed twin-clutch, giving 0-62mph in 2.8secs plus a quarter mile from 9.8secs @ 152mph. That is ruddy quick. Plus it’ll operate in pure electric mode when you want to go gently, and plug in to the mains, also. Neat.
It seems somewhat like a superbly made Lotus, light and clear and nimble. The technician all works: press on the EV-mode button and the engine expires and you’re able to drive around on just electric (we managed seven miles around the motorway at 80mph in Europe and much more in city ). When you allow off everything the leash? It is going to shatter your notion of exactly what quickly actually signifies. Warp time.
If we are honest you can not actually push the thing and stay legal, as it generates superbike-bashing acceleration and cornering G. The remainder of the world just isn’t geared up to deal. Visit a racetrack, participate’Rush mode’ — a procedure that takes 30 seconds, as the wing rises and the suspension drops 50mm. You can feel the busy aero and all of the time, the P1 is feeding data at you, hands, underside, ears, eyes. It’s a thing of beauty, and fear. Utterly brilliant.
