THE McLAREN P1

Released in 1993, the McLaren F1 redefined what a supercar is and quickly made it's mark as one the of the most impressive cars ever built. To this day the F1 evokes emotion difficult to express on a page. In 2013, 20 years later, McLaren turned back to its legendary creation but this time as inspiration for the world's first hybrid Supercar. Determined to revolutionize the Supercar market again, McLaren engineers used a 3.8 liter DOHC twin-turbocharged and intercooled V8 mated with an AC permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor to generate 903bhp. This stunning piece of engineering is mated to a carbon fiber MonoCage. It serves as the passenger compartment, safety cell, and the chassis' major structural component. The entire MonoCage, including roof and integrated battery compartment, weighs just 90kg!

The bodywork has been 'shrink-wrapped' over the mechanical hard points and the cockpit has been placed at the exact center of the chassis. Helping keep the stunning powertrain tight to the road are active aerodynamic systems, which reduce drag and maximize downforce. The most impressive of which is the RCC (Race Active Chassis Control) system that provides unprecedented chassis adjustability through independent hydro-pneumatic control of spring rate and damping at each wheel. Another active aerodynamic feature are the movable front and rear wings that can produce a peak of 600kg of downforce in Race mode. All of these features add up to propel the P1 from 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds, and to 100mph in 5.1 seconds, and can achieve a top speed of 217mph.

This outstanding performance requires equally special brakes, and the P1 has those as well. Equipped with four-wheel carbon ceramic brakes with six-piston front calipers and four-piston rears, the P1 discs can absorb 50 percent more energy than conventional ceramic brakes. The P1 is also furnished with Brake Steer – a feature now banned in F1 for providing too much advantage – the system applies brake force to the inner wheel upon entry to a fast corner to bring the car's nose tighter to the apex. On exiting the corner the same wheel is trimmed, pushing the torque to the outer wheel for increased traction while accelerating. In describing his road test, Daniel Pund of Car and Driver wrote, "It feels lithe and alert and well mannered and entirely crackle-worthy. It is every bit as great to drive as you might hope it to be."

Hand-built to custom order at McLarens Woking, England-based state of the art, laboratory-like facilities, the P1 stems from a company deep-rooted in motor sport and performance automotive engineering. The company, the namesake of legendary racing driver Bruce McLaren, has been run for the past three decades by Ron Dennis, another motor sport great.

The P1 is a masterpiece of space and Formula One technology, combined with inspired design applied to automotive engineering supreme. Absolutely vicious acceleration with superb handling and braking deliver an exhilarating on-track experience, while remaining remarkably usable on the road.

Many will agree, that the P1 is the ultimate supercar of today and possibly tomorrow.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is P1 number 90 of the total 375 car production-run. This striking supercar remains in essentially brand new condition, and has covered less than 1,200 miles from new at the time of cataloguing. This car was completed at the McLaren factory in March of 2014, and originally shipped to McLaren Philadelphia, before the cars first owner, a Pennsylvania-based enthusiast took delivery. The new McLaren had been built as a US-market car and is one of very few examples finished in the striking McLaren Orange exterior color. The P1 comes complete with its factory delivered accessories; including the custom-built sculpture model of the car, carbon fiber key box with the spare key, tools and books in the leather pouch, leather binder with plaque, window sticker, fire extinguisher and charging station, and has been signed by Frank Stephenson, the chief-designer of the P1.

An instant collector car, all 375 examples of the now legendary P1 were allocated nearly immediately after being released, and very few occasions come up to acquire a P1 today.
