• McLaren P1 hypercar powers up with hybrid insides to touch 62mph in 2.8 seconds

  • mclaren-p1-1
    The McLaren P1 is extremely fast, performs well enough to be slotted in the hypercar category and has looks that make it fit for a 15-year-old’s bedroom poster. But those are barely the reasons why we love this McLaren so much. The P1 is a mile apart from its contemporaries, thanks to its greener insides. The car is a hybrid! Sporting a gas-powered engine as well as an electric motor that offers a range of 11 km (6.8 miles) in full electric mode on the NEDC cycle, this hypercar spews zero emissions when run completely on electricity.

    The McLaren P1’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and the electric motor churn out 900 horsepower, enabling the car to hit the 0-62 miles per hour mark in 2.8 seconds. With a fuel efficiency of 8.3 l/100km, the car’s emissions fall below 194 g/km. only 375 examples of the McLaren P1 will be produced, each hand-built in the state-of-the-art McLaren Production Centre (MPC) in Woking, England, with 82 technicians building these brilliant hypercars from ground-up.
