McLaren has now officially revealed the specifications of the all new P1, whose production ready version made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. The concept was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show last year. The McLaren P1 has been claimed to be touching 0-100kmph mark in mere 2.8 seconds, 0-200kmph in 6.8 seconds and 0-300kmph in 16.6 seconds, which makes it one of the fastest performance cars ever built in the history of automobile. The company has also delivered the first car to the customer from its headquarter in Woking, England.

The company also claims the McLaren P1 to be able to cover a standing quarter mile in just 9.8 seconds at a speed of 245kmph. The top-speed for the vehicle is electronically limited to 349kmph. With such powerful acceleration figures, the P1 leaves behind the Porsche 918 Spyder, which does 0-100kmph in 2.8 seconds, 0-200kmph in 7.9 seconds, 0-300kmph in 23 seconds and has top speed of 339kmph. The P1 in fact matches to the level of LaFerrari, which crosses the 100kmph mark in less than 3 seconds and 200kmph mark in less than 7 seconds. However, in touching the 300kmph mark, LaFerrari proves itself to be swifter by achieving that in mere 15.5 seconds against P1's 16.6 seconds.

Deriving its power from a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 engine combined with electric motor, the all new McLaren P1 is capable of churning out the maximum power output of 903bhp and 91.8kgm of peak torque. Alone on electric motor the P1 can run up to 11km on the NEDC cycle, which sees emissions drop to zero. To be sold in a limited number, McLaren has confirmed that only 375 units of the vehicle will be sold worldwide.
