Having returned to road car production with the McLaren MP4-12C kick starting the McLaren Super Series, it was immediately looked upon to create the "new F1", a car that would once again fix the McLaren brand at the forefront of automotive performance.
Using a carbon fibre monoque chassis and all carbon body panels, in combination with a twin turbo V8 producing 727 brake horsepower and 720 Nm of torque, it was no slouch, however McLarens pursuit for performance did not finish there. The creative power of McLaren added a hybrid electric motor serving to "torque fill" any gaps in peak performance of the petrol engine, allowing the driver with maximum power at all times. The electric motor produces 176 horsepower, and when combined with the twin turbo petrol engine, maximum output is a remarkable 903 horsepower.
The astounding performance figures help accelerate the P1 from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds, 0-120 in 6.8 seconds, 0-180 mph in 16.5 seconds (a whole 5 seconds faster than the F1) and ultimately reaching an electronically limited top speed of 217 mph.
This exceptional "MSO" P1 was constructed in 2014 and remains the only McLaren P1 delivered new to Italy. The car is finished in the unique combination of paint to sample Porsche Grauschwartz 7A1 Gloss with Rocket Red Pinstripes. To compliment the pinstripes, inside the cabin is trimmed in Red Alcantara throughout.
