McLaren P1

The McLaren P1 is one of the fastest cars available on the market today. It looks great, power is phenomenal and handling as good as on an F1 car. Maybe the most interesting facts about it are its power, gained from two engines, petrol engine, and electric engine. So, this car is one of the first hybrid hypercars available on the market.

The engine is completely redesigned 3.8-Liter V8, used in the MP4-12C. Now, it produces 727 BHP at 7,500 RPM and 531 lb-ft. of torque. If you think this isn’t enough, the electric motor is integrated into petrol engine. It delivered 176BHP and 190 lb-ft. of torque, providing short bursts of power when the driver needs it and during ‘’turbo lag’’ (a short delay before the turbo kicks in.

All turbocharged cars have this problem). With both engines at full power, this car has 903BHP. This power is transferred to the back wheel through 7-speed double-clutch transmission, controlled with pedals, made from carbon fiber, on the steering wheel.

Other specifications are amazing. From 0-60mp/h is needed only 28 seconds, in 6.8 seconds it will reach 124 MP/h. Top speed is limited to the 217mp/h (350km/h). At it will stop from 62-0 in 30 meters in 2.9 seconds. All that power and speed and it can still reach 34 MPG (with a usage of an electric motor).

The driver can choose three different driving modes: IPAS (instant power assist system), when all of 903 horsepower’s are available to the driver, Active mode, when the suspension is harder and activates many systems needed for a track and E-mode, when P1 uses only an electric motor. McLaren will make only 375 units at a price of $1 million up to $1.3 million.
