In case you missed it, the McLaren P1 features a hybrid powertrain which consists of a 3.8-liter V8 powerplant and an electric motor. With a tremendous total output of 916 horsepower and 900Nm of torque, the 0-100 km/h sprint takes less than 3 seconds while the top speed is limited at 350 km/h.

According to the carmaker, the prototype was tested at high temperatures exceeding 52°C in order to make sure that everything goes as planned when the high-performance model will be delivered to customers.

If you are interested in price and availability, McLaren will produce only 375 units with a starting price of £866,000.
