Over one and a half weeks before the official presentation in Paris, McLaren Automotive has declassified a top supercar looks P1, which is positioned as the successor to the legendary model the McLaren F1, which appeared in 1992. But at the Paris Motor Show in 2012 the British brought a model of the future of the car and the production version presented in the spring at the motor show in Geneva in 2013, although the photos and details of the news appeared on the network by the end of February. As expected, the final version looks McLaren P1 is different from the concept of the minimum: one can only note the redesigned front bumper, different grid at the back of the bus and road Pirelli P Zero Corsa. The supercar is based on carbon fiber monocoque MonoCage weighing only 100 kg with a special hole in the roof area through which the air for cooling the engine. Body panels are made primarily of carbon fiber. The total weight of the vehicle is 1 400 kg. The body itself McLaren P1 is designed for the maximum aerodynamic efficiency (drag coefficient is 0.34). The company says that at high speeds the vehicle operates in the area of downforce of 600 kg, which is five times more than the MP4-12C. In addition, the supercar is equipped with active aerodynamic elements in front of and behind the telescopic adjustable rear wing, which is able to change both the height and angle of attack. Also in the technical arsenal McLaren P1 appear on carbon-ceramic brakes, adaptive dampers and traction control system with five modes of operation. The movement of the vehicle resulting in a hybrid propulsion system that combines a 3.8-liter gasoline engine V8 twit-turbo power of 737 hp and 179-hp electric motor and battery pack. However, about 10 km supercar can overcome exclusively elektotyage. Working in tandem with a 7-speed automatic transmission with double-clutch Graziano, transmit traction to the rear wheels from zero to hundreds McLaren P1 is able to accelerate in 2.8 seconds (0 to 200 – for 6.8 sec., And from 0 to 300 – 16.5 s), and its top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h. With such parameters P1 will seriously compete with the Porsche 918 Spyder and the new supercar Ferrari LaFerrari, which replaces the model Enzo. The circle on the Nordschleife of Nurburgring McLaren P1 overcome in 7 minutes and 4.0 seconds, which was five seconds. slower than expected time, so that the company plans to improve the result. But even this result is allowed to occupy the third place among the fastest admitted to public roads, cars on the Nordschleife, second only ultralight Radical SR8 (6:48) and the Radical R8LM (6:55). Interior McLaren P1 supercar is in the minimalist style and is made entirely of carbon fiber. According to the creators, the driver behind the wheel of a car should feel like a fighter pilot. The basic equipment models included climate control, navigation, and audio Meridian. But you need to pay extra for the mats. In total, the company will release a limited batch of cars in the amount of 375 pieces (500 originally planned, but potential customers in favor of more exclusive models instead of lesser value). Price McLaren P1 is 866,000 pounds, which is equivalent to the current rate of 1.0048 million euros, or 1.313 million dollars. But that did not stop on the first day of the Geneva 2013 sell just six cars.
