This is truly the end of an era. The McLaren P1 has finally finished its production run of 375 cars. The final example was finished in an exclusive pearlescent orange that takes its cues from the last ever F1 that McLaren made nearly two decades ago. This particular car makes full use of McLaren’s MSO customization options and features extensive use of leather, Alcantara in matching orange color and plenty of exposed carbon fiber both inside and out.
Just like the McLaren F1 that came before, the P1 redefined what the world expected from high-end exotics and performance cars. The first of the new hybrid supercars, the P1 combined the power of an angry, turbocharged V6 gasoline engine with the magic of batteries and electric motors to create 903 horsepower and 722 lb-ft of torque. That is enough grunt to push this carbon fiber rocket to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, and onward to a top speed of nearly 250 mph. Sadly McLaren decided to limit the car’s top speed to just 217 mph for the sake of fuel consumption and tire wear.
Hopefully it will take McLaren less than 15 years to create a replacement this time.
