A super-sonic McLaren P1 supercar, Spotted in Dubai on Sunday morning in the great city of Jumeirah by BharathAutos founder Azfar Ahmed.

The McLaren P1 is a hypercar developed by McLaren Automotive. It was first shown at the Paris Motor Show 2012. The McLaren P1 aims to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and track. Deliveries to retail customers began in the UK in October 2013. The entire P1 production of 375 units was sold out by November 2013.

The McLaren P1 is powered by a hybrid drive-train based around a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine with 727hp and 719nm, mated to an electric motor which adds another 176hp and 260nm for a grand total of 903hp and 978nm. What does that mean? Hitting 100kmph will take “less than three seconds” and shooting up to 200kmph will take “under seven seconds.”

The most impressive thing, however, is that hitting 300kmph will take “no more than 17 seconds,” which shaves 11 seconds off the time originally set by the famed McLaren F1. In other words, this thing is hella quick. Top speed is electronically limited to 349 kmph.
