Six concept cars we would like to see in production
After the 90s F1 supercar, the P1 is McLaren’s latest attempt to take on the best in the business. It will sport a tweaked version of the 3.8-litre, direct injection, V8 engine that will develop over 800PS of power! It’s being developed at McLaren’s UK technology centre where lightness is a crucial criteria for development.
The first pictures reveal that McLaren has worked hard to give the P1 an evocative supercar appeal, but Mclaren could have overdone it with those busy lines and exposed carbon fibre panels.
McLaren claims it will be the best driver’s car in the world on both road and track when it goes into production late 2013. The company aims to use all of its racing and road car experience, 50 years of it, to create a car like no other, much like they did with the F1 20 years ago.
The P1 will be slotted above the MP4-12C supercar both in terms of performance and price.
When the flagship McLaren goes on sale it will compete with the upcoming flagship Ferrari F70.
