McLaren Unveils Official Photos of the P1

In a year that will surely see its fair share of celebration from McLaren thanks in part to 2013 marking its 50th anniversary as highlighted here, the English carmaker rejoices in the release of official production photos for its highly anticipated P1 sportscar. Having first covered the coupe here which was followed by an in-action video that released just last month, McLaren provides imagery to what will be expected to hit showrooms later this year. Besides the new color, this P1 offers added carbon fiber air vents on both corners of the front bumper, road tires, and a tighter mesh for the rear end vent. McLaren has further announced that this model’s hybrid powertrain combines a mid-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and an electric motor producing a system output of 903HP (916PS) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) of torque, with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox sending power to the rear wheels.
