McLaren showcased the lightweight and powerful sportscar at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, the McLaren P1. The McLaren P1 is a successor to the legendary F1. Now production version of the McLaren P1 has been recently spied in the United Kingdom, however, these exclusive spy shots of the production version of the P1 hypercar confirm that it will stay true to the concept shown at the Paris Motor Show.

It features the same low-slung design, but a few changes to the rear have seen a set of more traditional taillights fitted. McLaren Automotive has not revealed any other details but sources confirm that the P1 is poised for daily use with a modified version of the 12C’s twin-turbo V8 mated to an F1-style KERS hybrid boost system, with a total power output of about 720bhp. The power-to-weight ratio will be more than 600bhp per tonne.

The P1 will be left-hand drive only and be offered in a limited production run of 500 units. It will be priced in the range between £700,000 (approx. 6.17 crore INR) to £800,000 (approx. 7.50 crore INR)  when it goes on-sale later next year. The P1 is tipped to appear for the first time in full production form at the 2013 Geneva motor show which will be held from 5th-17th March, 2013.

Additional details on the supercar are limited for the moment and will be announced during the Swiss automotive event next year.
