McLaren P1 – Spied in its Camouflaged Suit

Mclaren P1

A fully camouflaged version of the McLaren P1, which made its debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, has been caught testing on the Spanish mainland.

The new McLaren P1 ‘replacement to the legendary McLaren F1’ will have a power-to-weight ratio of over 600bhp per tonne when it goes on sale in late 201, the P1 is should be a lot lighter than the current MP4-12C due to use of lightweight composite’s, a total output of around 740bhp is expected.

The engine has been told to have a hybrid power-train similar to the 918 spider but details are unlikely to be fully released until later on after its World Premier perhaps to be shown at Geneva in 2013.

The car’s body is made from thin carbon-fibre panels which are moulded in two sections. The whole of the rear and the whole of the front of the car are made up of one single carbon fibre moulding, Then mated to the cockpit which has also been moulded with carbon fibre.

The car is rumoured to be left-hand drive only, So gone is the central driving position from the F1. (Surely Not we are British!)

It is likely to carry a price tag of between £700k and £800k.
