McLaren’s plug-in hybrid P1 supercar went into production last month. Built by a team of 82 technicians in a four-stage assembly process, it takes 17 days to build one car and once running at full capacity, the production line will see one car completed each day, with production due to run until mid-2015.
The P1 production will be limited to 375 cars and prices start from £866,000. Want one? Looks like you are late to the part as according to Top Gear and other media outlets, all 375 P1s are “accounted for,” meaning they’ve been bought out or secured with a deposit. So far 12 P1s have been built all destined for customers in Europe.
We are sure some of these cars will make it to the second market soon and you can always buy yourself a hybrid Ferrari LaFerrari or Porsche 918 Spyder.
As a refresher, the P1 is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and a lightweight electric motor for a combined power output of 903bhp.
0-62mph comes in 2.8 seconds, 0-124mph in 6.8 seconds, 0-186mph in just 16.5 seconds and the top speed is electronically limited to 217mph (350 km/h).
