We all know that the McLaren P1 is a beauty in its entirety, but it is important to appreciate things in smaller portions on occasion (maybe that’s just the rule for eating dessert, but hey). Either way, this shot will give your desktop the artsy touch it needs.
McLaren will launch sixteen new models in the next six years, and while the 3.8 twin-turbo V8 remains in the lineup, Woking will invest £1 billion is research and development to end up with a smaller engine option, lots of hybrids and a fully electric supercar by 2022.
If you want McLaren Special Operations to convert your “regular” McLaren P1 into something like you see above, the company will charge you approximately £220,000. Not that it matters, but for the price of those body panels and MSO’s time, you could also buy an open top 650S. Worth it?
Since the P1 recently ceased production, McLaren Special Operations came up with a special one for the brand’s first full three-tier model lineup display at the Geneva Motor Show, which includes an MSO 675LT Spider as well.
Have you ever wondered what colors you can order for your McLaren P1 GTR? Here are 12 of those color combos.
Just a month after we mourned the McLaren P1 reaching the end of production, pictures emerged of one torn up and loaded onto a wrecker. Not only is that over $1 million down the drain, it’s also just plain depressing.

That’s it. It’s over. The end. As of today, the McLaren P1 road car is a car that McLaren used to make. 375 production examples have been built, and no more for the rest of time.
Imagine one lap around the sunny Portimao Circuit in Portugal with Chris Harris in the McLaren P1 running on its optional P Zero Trofeo R tires. You’d probably have the exact same face as Marino Franchitti above.
To get the Holy Trinity of hypercars together at a track, you need to have the right names in your phonebook. To drive the crap out of them and have as much fun as possible, you need Chris Harris, Tiff Needell and Marino Franchitti behind the wheels.
Super-rich-dude Paul Bailey submitted his Holy Trinity of hypercars–the Ferrari LaFerrari, Mclaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder–to a track comparison at Silverstone. We assume this happened before he crashed his 918 into a crowd of people a few days ago at a Malta car show.
Chris Harris finally got the three hybrid hypercars together on a track and here’s the first trailer of the video and it looks like he might beat (Not) Top Gear to the punch.
Check out this 2,740 horsepower showdown between the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Ferrari LaFerrari on the same race track in the same conditions. It might not be elite driving, but seeing what these cars can do in “consumer spec” in the hands of their actual owners is kind of fascinating.
While this isn’t one of the road-legal P1 GTRs yet, McLaren Special Operations certainly had to go a bit crazy with the airbrush for this customer.
Roller coasters can be exciting and all, but they corner like they’re on rails—literally. Yawn. Rides are so much better when the tires have been happily thrashed on all day and you get just a little bit of slip that’s controllable with competent hands. Oh, and they’re the best of all if they’re in McLaren’s latest…
