The race-inspired Instant Power Assist System (IPAS) gives the McLaren P1™ astonishing performance. Zero to 100km/h (62mph) will take less than 3 seconds, zero to 200 km/h (124mph) under 7 seconds, and zero to 300 km/h (186mph) will be achieved in no more than 17 seconds. Putting that into perspective, that’s 5 seconds faster than the legendary McLaren F1 road car. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h (217mph).
Instant Power Assist System (IPAS) provides: 0 to 300 km/h (186mph) in less than 17 seconds, more than 23% faster than the legendary McLaren F1.

McLaren P1 Exclusivity
McLaren has closely monitored demand to maintain exclusivity, and announced a production number of just 375 units – a figure that will ensure the McLaren P1 will remain a rarity and, if spotted on the road, an unforgettable sight.
McLaren P1 Designing Performance
The company prides itself on designing performance cars that owners can use regularly so the McLaren P1 comes comprehensively equipped as standard with an array of color, trim alternatives, and visible carbon fiber in the cabin.
McLaren P1 Performance
The tires fitted to the McLaren P1 are specially developed P Zero Corsas, which have been developed with McLaren’s technology partner, Pirelli. Pirelli has seen the tire testing integrated into the schedule, as a key performance component.
McLaren P1 Feature
A surprising feature is that the car can be driven solely in electric mode. In city driving, with an average speed of 30 mph, this could mean up to a 20km (12mi.) range. More than enough for an owner to enter, for example, a city center Zero Emissions Zone, have dinner and return home.
The company prides itself on designing performance cars that their owners can use regularly so the McLaren P1™ comes comprehensively equipped as standard with an array of color and trim alternatives from which the customer was be able to choose as well as visible carbon fiber in the cabin. The options list is limited to only bespoke content that a customer might wish to add through McLaren Special Operations, and fitted luggage.
The McLaren P1™ has the combined force of two highly-efficient powerplants, offering the optimum mix of superb throttle response, day-to-day drivability and top speed. A mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine is substantially enhanced featuring, for example, larger turbochargers and a highly effective electric motor, to give a combined output of 916PS (903 bhp) and a maximum torque figure of 900Nm. This ensures instantaneous throttle response through the rev range, more akin to a naturally aspirated engine. Emissions of less than 200g/km on the combined cycle are reduced to zero in full electric drive mode, while the Formula 1-derived DRS and IPAS technologies offer an increase in straight-line speed and an instant boost of power.
To rein in the power produced by the twin powerplants, the McLaren P1™ is designed to offer braking performance more associated with a GT3 or sports racing car. Developed by McLaren’s Formula 1 partner Akebono, the system features a new type of carbon ceramic disc, which has previously seen service in space, but never before used on a road car. Stronger than conventional carbon ceramic, the material dissipates heat more effectively, giving the highly efficient braking system exceptional stopping and cooling capability. The system also boasts significantly reduced weight, and a bespoke ceramic layer coats both friction surfaces to give an attractive mirrored finish.
