[b]Priced from 866,000 GBP[/b]

[size=3][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#333333]McLaren has officially revealed the P1 production version, ahead of the car's debut scheduled for next week in Geneva.[/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#333333]A couple of hours ago we published the first official images with the production version of the P1 and now McLaren has decided to reveal all details about their new supercar. Limited to 375 units, theMcLaren P1 will have a starting price of 866,000 GBP and 1,150,000 USD (approx 1,004,800 EUR). McLaren originally planned 500 units but Ron Dennis decided to make only 375 cars after meeting with potential owners who were concerned more about the car's exclusivity rather than top speed or price tag.[/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#333333]With Instant Power Assist System (IPAS) turned on, the P1 will hit [b]100 km/h (62 mph) in less than three seconds, while 0-200 km/h (124 mph) takes under seven seconds[/b]. It needs 17 seconds from 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph), before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).[/color][/font][/size]

[size=3][font=tahoma,geneva,sans-serif][color=#333333]IPAS is basically the electric motor which can be activated via a steering wheel-mounted button which will give the P1 the throttle response of a normally-aspirated engine, according to McLaren. Another button on the steering wheel is labeled DRS

It looks nice but, as mentioned, it's a track car and isn't suited to general use. It is simply a status symbol.

Err what? I'm guessing you missed this part of the article:

[quote][color=#333333][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][size=3]Although focus was on making it as light as possible, McLaren has added amenities such as satellite navigation, climate control and premium audio system. However, the list of comfort features ends here since this was built primarily as a driver's car, with the position of the driver being individually configurable and with a digital dash showing all relevant information in typical racing style.[/size][/font][/color][/quote]

Yeah it's mostly a track car, but it's magnitudes more comfy and feature-filled than the bare-bones F1.

You do know what drivers car means right ?

this car is uncomfortable as hell to drive on the track, on a road it'll break your back, provided you bring a lift truck to lift it over the speed bumps.

Fun to rent for a couple of hours at the track, but that's about it. as a supercar it doesn't have the comfort or looks to be a top contender, it just has the status of "most expensive super car so look at me I'm awesome".

as awesome as it is, it's not even close to the top of my list if I get filthy ridiculously rich.

Indeed, don't forget McLaren test on the Top Gear test track. A friend of mine actually spent a summer internship being driven around in this car while they were testing, handing the collection of the test data, and then got a full time job working on it when he finished uni. Lucky git!

There are better looking cars for much much cheaper than this that you can actually drive daily on the roads which will come with the same package, hell do I need a ~700k car for that?

That depends whether the price of the car is directly proportional to the women you might attract whilst showboating in it. I'd be happy to conduct a study but unfortunately I don't have a free ~700k lying about! :p

Exaggerate much? Even the F1 has been spotted driving on normal roads numerous times.
What makes you think they are uncomfortable? They have cushioned seats, suspensions, airbags, and are street legal.
Whether it's driven on the track or a 300 mile trip, it will function just fine and so will your back.

I'm not entirely sure that you do however.
The BMW M5 is a drivers car, yet it has a lot of features and has a comfy ride.

being street legal and having suspension doesn't mean it's a comfy ride.

The F1 doesn't have airbags or power steering and its a centered driver seating makes it very impractical and not very comfortable. It doesn't even have cup holders. However, I think this P1 is mounds better in terms of comfort and practicality following the mp4-12c. I don't think there are many modern, supercars being made these days that are as barebones as the F1.

I see nothing to indicate that it would be uncomfortable. All you've done is make a bad comparison to the F1 which made no sense since the F1 is bare-bones and the P1 is far from it. And saying it will break your back and not survive a civilian road is nothing but a sad exaggeration. Compared to most supercars, the P1 is very well equipt. Ever sit in an open-wheel racecar before? That's a pretty close definition of discomfort, but it's still not hard to drive one for hours on end.

Most super cars are not comfortable ride,s no matter how many luxuries they have, NO supercar that's built as a trackday car is a comfy ride, they're built to be stiff and rigid.

Hello, my name is [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSfZt2ybmBk"]Nissan GT-R R35 Switzer 'Ultimate Street Edition'[/url] and i'm here to destroy the McLaren P1 and at the same time being a comfy ride :D

Not only does this Nissan GT-R R35 kills the McLaren P1, but it laughs pretty good at the price of the McLaren P1 to.
