The era of the electric supercar is here. Through innovative technology and a meticulous approach to design and quality, McLaren Automotive has built a hybrid beast capable of competing on the racetrack. It has performance, beauty, and efficiency; whoever said "you can't have it all" never drove a McLaren P1.

The McLaren P1 is the successor to the legendary McLaren F1, which broke the world record in
1998 for fastest production supercar ever built, reaching a top speed of 231 mph. Since then, McLaren’s automotive offerings have been synonymous with greatness. Starting with P1’s design and build quality, McLaren ensures that the roof and carbon fibre monocoque construction of the P1 delivers unsurpassed safety to drivers and passengers. The two-butterfly door coupe was designed with racing in mind. So, of course, with large carved-out air intake vents, the chassis is aerodynamic and sleek. On the interior is a carbon fibre trim with leather sport seats to match. At the centre is a large touchscreen for all your entertainment and information needs.

McLaren’s ProActive Chassis Control system gives drivers an incredibly accurate and reactive driving experience without the stiffness. The car’s Drag Reduction System closes the rear spoiler for full throttle racing. The Inconel exhaust pipes can withstand temperatures of up to 982°C, which is essential given the P1’s powerful engine. The P1 boasts a 3.8-liter V8 petrol engine, kicking out 727 hp with an electric motor capable of 176 hp for a combined 903 horsepower. If that’s not enough, the eco-friendly electric motor—powered by lithium ion batteries—reduces CO 2 emissions by allowing the supercar to drive 6 miles without fuel. All of these groundbreaking achievements and the brand’s love for racing make the McLaren P1 the supercar to beat.
