Default Official: McLaren P1 hits 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, 186 in 16.5

Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Plants/Manufacturing, McLaren

With over 900 horsepower on tap from its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and electric motor, there was never any question that the McLaren P1 would be quick. Just how quick, we didn't know, but with the first example now in its customer's hands, McLaren Automotive has given up the vital stats on its new hybrid hypercar.

After what McLaren terms as an "extensive testing and development programme", the new P1 has now been revealed to run from 0-62 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds. Keep the accelerator down and it'll hit 124 mph in 6.8 seconds and 186 mph in 16.5 seconds - which may seem a little abstract, so for reference, consider that it took the legendary McLaren F1 a massive 5.5 seconds longer to reach 186, and that was long considered to be the fastest car on the road. Run out of said road and the P1 will shave off that speed in a hurry too, braking from 62 mph to a standstill in less than 100 feet, which McLaren claims is a third the distance it would take most vehicles.

Those are some massive performance stats, and come as the result of an extensive build process. Woking says it takes 82 technicians 17 days of work to complete a single example, culminating in a "monsoon test" that involves dumping over 4,000 gallons of de-ionized water onto the finished car to make sure all the seals are tight. Once production gets up to speed, it'll roll out one unit per day until all 375 examples are built - projected to take until the middle of 2015.

The first example - decked out in yellow and exposed carbon - was just picked up by its unnamed British owner directly from the McLaren Technology Centre. Delve further into the performance stats and build process in the press release below.Continue reading McLaren P1 hits 62 mph in 2.8 seconds, 186 in 16.5
