Spy Pictures of the McLaren P1 testing on track leaked
|   Monday, February 04, 2013
First images of the soon to launch McLaren P1 have been released testing on track, however the vehicle has been highly camouflaged to hide the details of its body structures from the spying eyes of the camera. The P1 is expected to be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013 and that is the only good news about the vehicle at the moment.

McLaren has not given any details of the P1 apart from stating that a vehicle of the next level is set to emerge from its stables within the next few months.
However, the latest spy pictures confirm the fact that the exterior of the P1 does resemble its concept closely and there have been no significant changes on the exterior than the one showcased last year at the Paris International Motor Show.

Officials from McLaren had commented that the concept vehicle was 95 percent of what the actual production model would look like and the company seems to have stuck to its word. The images that leaked out last week from the private unveiling of the car - at Los Vegas exclusively for the private buyers - showcased the detailed underbody layout of the vehicle and the recent pictures also highlighted the same topic.

The latest pictures went a step forward to show the detailed underpinnings behind the floor structure of the P1. The exterior is designed to provide advanced aerodynamic advantages to the car and McLaren claims that vehicle is set to be an iconic track vehicle within the next few months. Insiders reveal that the P1 is powered by an advanced version of the twin cam V8 of the MP4 12 C which is mated to a F1 styled KERS transmission system.

With its combination to the KERS advanced hybrid technology, the power development has been increased to a massive 720 BHP. General power to weight ratios is expected to be close to 600 BHP per ton and this is another great milestone McLaren has managed to achieve in terms of vehicle designing.

McLaren had claimed that they had no intention of developing the fastest vehicle in the world. However, the company wanted to build the best driver oriented track car on the face of the earth. The company claims that the P1 is all that and more. Although none of the prototypes are available for test drives and hence the driving ergonomics cannot be judged at the moment.

McLaren is set to launch left had drive versions of the McLaren P1 and will be available for a limited period only. Initially, just a few lucky people will be able to own the P1 before the vehicle will be sent for mass production – which is still a year away. It is estimated that the P1 will be priced within £700,000 to £800,000 price bracket although the specific pricing has not been decided as of yet. McLaren plans on making the P1 available for test run post the Geneva Motor Show and enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the official figures posted by the car.
