How To Race A Mclaren P1 And Stay Alive | Arabia Motors Show Episode 11

The McLaren P1 has a top speed of 217 mph and It accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and will hit 124 mph in an eye-watering 6.8 seconds. If you’ve got the bravery, take it to the racing Circuit like we did and you’ll understand why this car is called The Ultimate Track Car.
P.S Be sure to take with you an extra pair of pants 😉

The 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine, which produces 727 horsepower, is responsible for the majority of the power. The remaining power is supplied by a 177 horsepower electric motor.
The rear-wheel-drive P1 may be driven in entirely electric mode (approximately a 30-mile range), with only the combustion engine, or with the entire power-train combination working together.
In a regular combustion engine, you’d have to wait for the turbos to build up boost before you could use it, but McLaren’s engineers devised a clever way to use the motor and batteries to produce electric torque to cover the turbo gaps. As a result, the power band is over 7,000 rpm, which is rather outstanding.
The P1 is ridiculously quick. It accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds and reaches 124 miles per hour in 6.8 seconds. If you have the asphalt and the courage, 186 mph may be reached in 16.5 seconds. Take it to the drag strip and you’ll spend the entire day turning 10-second quarters (at 150 mph). That peak speed is also restricted electronically, owing to tire compositions. If the P1 had the correct tires, it could theoretically reach 249 mph.
To guarantee that each P1 was unique, each device was produced to individual specs, many of which were chosen by the owners.
The price was a solid $1.15 million when it was first released, while real pricing fluctuate depending on how much customisation was added to the unit. McLaren’s Special Operations section is a devoted group of extremely experienced craftsmen that can fulfill any specified want, whether it’s putting crushed diamonds in your paint (which they’ve done) or crafting the McLaren badge out of solid gold (which they’ve also done). All of this, though, raises the ultimate retail price.
In 2015, a man named Paul Bailey brought his own trinity of hypercars to Silverstone Circuit for a race: a Ferrari LaFerrari, a McLaren P1, and a Porsche 918. Each car was driven by the same professional racing driver, and the P1 took first place in 58.24 seconds, followed by the Porsche 918 in 58.46 seconds, and the LaFerrari in 58.58 seconds.
