McLaren P1 Concept unveiled at the 2012 Paris Motor Show

McLaren P1 Concept

A couple of weeks before the firstever images of the McLaren F1 successor released – the McLaren P1. Now at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, McLaren has revealed very little details of the McLaren P1. The company says it’s a design study at this stage and has no interior, but the exterior won’t look much different from the production version, which is targeted to debut at 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

McLaren Automotive says that apart from being the initial project code, P1 is short for ‘Position One’ – a salute to its 180 GP victories in 46 years in Formula One. The P1 will have a power-to-weight ratio of more than 600 PS per tonne (a Bugatti Veyron manages 530 PS per tonne). Assuming the P1 weighs the same as the MP4-12C, this translates to an 860 PS output.

McLaren hasn’t released any details on the powertrain of the car or any performance figures, but the car is expected to include some type of hybrid setup.
