McLaren P1 Confirmed for Geneva Debut, Digital Dash Revealed [video]

McLaren has officially confirmed the production version of the P1 supercar will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in Geneva next month.

For the first time we get to see a glimpse of the interior, confirming that the P1 will adopt a race-inspired digital dash readout. The video below demonstrates what the driver will see as the McLaren P1 transitions into a fully-focussed track car.

When driver selects the Race mode, the large double element adjustable ‘active’ rear wing extends, and the pitch of the wing alters into an optimal aerodynamic position. In Race mode the screen illuminates green, followed by red and finally blue across the top, just like in a Formula 1 car.

In addition McLaren has also released a side profile photo of the car, which looks identical to the concept.

Power is expected to come from an updated 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 mated to Formula 1 style KERS system for a total output of around 800bhp.
