McLaren P1 Concept

25 September 2012 2 Comments

Last week, McLaren gave us a preview of their latest concept car dubbed as the McLaren P1 set to debut at the Paris Motor Show.



I thought it looked great and did a quick rendering of it in race car form..

A few more photos of the McLaren P1 Concept was released today.



The new set of press photos also shows the rear wing in the full UP-position.



McLaren Automotive will use its first ever international motor show appearance to preview its next generation ultimate supercar – the McLaren P1 – which takes much of its technological and spiritual inspiration from the company’s Racing division. The McLaren P1 has one simple goal: to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and track.

At the Paris Motor Show, Mondial de l’Automobile 2012, the McLaren P1 is previewed as a design study. Next year a production version, which the company aims to put on sale within 12 months, will be revealed.

‘The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage,’ says McLaren Automotive Executive Chairman Ron Dennis. ‘Twenty years ago we raised the supercar performance bar with the McLaren F1 and our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again.’

‘Our aim is not necessarily to be the fastest in absolute top speed but to be the quickest and most rewarding series production road car on a circuit,’ says McLaren Automotive Managing Director Antony Sheriff. ‘It is the true test of a supercar’s all round ability and a much more important technical statement. Our goal is to make the McLaren P1 the most exciting, most capable, most technologically advanced and most dynamically accomplished supercar ever made.’

When the McLaren P1 goes into production in 2013, it will sit above the 12C and 12C Spider, in terms of both price and performance.

    Did you check out their free app? They have a pdf that you can download from the McLaren facebook page, and an app you can put on your phone or iPad. When you load up the app and aim your camera at the printed pdf, you see a full 3D render of the car. I actually printed a huge version so the render would appear life-size. It was crazy, but worth doing! Check it out.
