The first example of the McLaren P1 hybrid supercar has been collected by its customer from the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England, the British sportscar manufacturer announced today.
“We designed the McLaren P1 from the outset with one clear goal: to be the best driver’s car on road and track. The confirmation of the performance figures underlines this. I am very proud of our Woking based team and everything they have achieved with this ambitious project. The handover of the first McLaren P1 is another milestone in our 50 year history,” said Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive Ltd.

The company also confirmed the vehicle's performance figures, saying the P1 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds, and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 16.5 seconds, the latter making it 5.5 seconds quicker than the McLaren F1. As previously announced, top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h (217 mph).

Moving over to fuel efficiency, McLaren claims the P1 returns 34 miles pe gallon (8.3 liters/100 km) on the European combined cycle, while CO2 emissions are of 194 g/km. The electric motor provides a range of 11 km (6.8 miles) in all electric mode.
