McLaren P1: 0-100 km/h in 2.8 Seconds And 8.3 Liters Per 100 km
|   Friday, October 25, 2013
McLaren P1, the new hypercar from the Woking manufacturer, is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h (0-62mph) in 2.8 seconds. The value is equal to that of the Porsche 918 Spyder, but the British model exceeds the German model at acceleration from 0 to 200 km/h and 0 - 300 km / h.

More specifically, the McLaren P1 is able to accelerate from 0 to 200 km / h (0-124mph) in 6.8 seconds, and up to 300 km / h (0-186mph), in 16.5 seconds. Thus, it is faster than the Porsche 918 Spyder up to 200 km / h by more than a second and respectively more than five seconds faster in the later case.


Even so, the new English hipercar is not the fastest production car in the world, the new LaFerrari having a confirmed 0 - 300 km / h time of 15.5 seconds, while the values ​​of 0 - 100 km / h and 0 - 200 km / h have not been disclosed. Maximum speed of the LaFerrari was not announced, but that of McLaren P1 is electronically limited to 350 km / h (217mph).

Stopping performance is equally as impressive, due to a bespoke carbon-ceramic braking system developed by Akebono and Pirelli tyres. Braking from 300 km / h is made in 246 meters, and required only 6.2 seconds. From 100 km / h the McLaren P1 brakes in 2.9 seconds, and requires 30.2 meters, all in the best conditions.
Despite the formidable performance, the model has an average fuel consumption of 8.3 liters per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 194 grams per kilometer. The quarter mile is made in 9.8 seconds, with a finishing speed of 245 km / h. The engine with internal combustion is mounted centrally and delivers 737 horsepower at 7500 rpm and 720 Nm at 4000 rpm.

The electric motor delivers 179 hp and provides a torque of 260 Nm. The electric motor is mounted above the combustion unit and the two join forces in a dual clutch transmission with seven gears which delivers power to the rear wheels. For maximum efficiency the electric unit ensures recovery of kinetic energy from deceleration, energy normally lost through braking.

There aren't many cars with an official 0 – 100 km / h time of under 3.0 sec, including models like the Ariel Atom V8, Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, Koenigsegg Agera R and Nissan GT-R Spec V.

"The P1 is designed to be driven to a racing circuit with great levels of comfort and refinement," said Antony Sheriff, McLaren Managing Director, "and then to be used on the racing circuit where it will offer an experience matched only by purpose-built racing cars."

"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. This is the true test of a supercar's all-round ability and a much more important technical statement."
