McLaren Automotive completed the production of all proposed 375 units of the P1 hyper car on Tuesday (10 December) at its facility in Woking, Surrey, England.
Combining a petrol engine and lightweight electric motor, the McLaren P1 debuted in production form at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The limited-production hyper car was the first model in the Ultimate Series in the McLaren model tiers, above the Super Series and the Sports Series.
The production of the P1 began in October 2013, with all cars sold prior to the first car being delivered. The first car was finished Ice Silver paint and rolled off the production line during the 50th anniversary celebrations of McLaren. Running at full capacity, the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) finished one car per day, with each individual model taking 17 days to complete on average. The final production example of the P1 is finished in pearlescent orange shade.
The P1 features a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine that develops 727bhp and 719Nm of torque at 7,500rpm, combined with an electric motor producing 176bhp and 260Nm of torque. With both motors, the P1 will have a total power and torque output of 903bhp and 978Nm of torque. The car is rear-wheel drive with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The hyper car also needs just 2.8 seconds to reach 100kmph from standstill.
Out of the total 375 cars, Mclaren sold 34% in the American market, 26% in European market, 13% in the Middle East and Africa, and 27% in the Asia Pacific region.
With the completion of the final McLaren P1, the Ultimate Series will have only one car, the McLaren P1 GTR. The track-only, 986bhp P1 GTR model is due to complete production in early 2016.
