The McLaren P1 LM, a tuned version of the P1, creates 986 horsepower and is capable of lapping the Nürburgring in 6:43.2. But this is not that. No, this is the McLaren P1 LM’s only trip up Pikes Peak.
People can claim cars and car enthusiasts are dying out, but Aston Martin is surging ahead with its recent revitalization with plans to offer not just the Valkyrie hypercar and upcoming mid-engine Ferrari 488 rival, but also yet another million-dollar mid-engine hypercar to take on whatever McLaren plans to do next.
The McLaren Senna is a divisive car. It’s light, powerful, and not all that pretty. Some people hate the looks, others like it because it’s going to be so freaking fast. McLaren wasn’t done when it made the road car though. It decided to see what would happen if it didn’t have to worry about safety regulations,…
Look, man, I get it: Cars are hard. Driving them especially. And when you put curbs in the way, well, maybe we should all just stay home.
The owner of this F1 also owns a P1 in the same color with the appropriately-matched license plate. I’ve done the same thing and color matched my Walmart bicycle with my old Fisher Price trike.
This time last year, a report suggested that McLaren was working on a three-seater hypercar inspired by the iconic McLaren F1. Now another report, also from Autocar, suggests that we’ll be getting an Ultimate Series McLaren P1 replacement first.
McLaren claims the P1's carbon ceramic brakes can stomp from 124 mph to a dead stop in 4.5 seconds. Just thinking about that makes my lunch feel loose. But the car also uses its brakes in another interesting way, as our friend at Engineering Explained breaks down.
Holy shit. We’ve heard the rumors, but now we actually see it on the track. McLaren’s new all-electric P1 is full of unexpected twists: a central driving position like the F1, a zero to top speed in just two seconds, and it’s the only fully open-top McLaren P1 ever. Also, it seems to be even lighter. I’m in awe.
Last week we dealt with the bizarre news that Apple—which has reportedly been working on its own electric car—was in talks to buy McLaren. McLaren denied the chatter, and I think it’s because it was secretly working on this thing and it didn’t want Apple’s paws on it. Meet McLaren’s first electric car. It’s on the…
There’s nothing like staring into the deep finish of fresh carbon fiber and watching the gentle waves dance in the sunlight. The only thing that tops it is, well, more carbon fiber—in color!
What’s the best car for running all of your errands, which may just happen to include running to the shops at five and then lapping the Nürburgring at six? Is it the McLaren P1?
If you’re slightly confused as to which McLaren model is which, I don’t blame you: the cars pretty much all look the same. They all look fast and aerodynamic and purpose-built, but they’re nearly identical for sure. So I will go ahead and make you this handy little post that you can reference at the next dinner party…
We’re all familiar with this car. It’s quite a fucking fast one. You should buy it, garage it, and only take it out to play with on Sundays at the track, right? Wrong!
The McLaren P1 LM is basically a road-going McLaren P1 GTR, with the same 986 horsepower but with an even huger amount of downforce. Created by the same company that did the original McLaren F1 LMs, Lanzante, it is a ferocious beast. Here it is storming the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and breaking the…
McLaren has a plan called Track 22 including a bunch of goals the supercar company wants to see completed by the year 2022. One of those goals happens to be deciding whether or not the successor to the McLaren P1 is going to be fully-electric. Hope you’re cool with that.
The McLaren P1, crown jewel of the company’s sports car lineup, is often compared to its hybrid supercar rivals like the Porsche 918 or the Ferrari LaFerrari. You would think McLaren would claim it is comparable to none, and yet the company’s website lists the P1's specifications directly compared to the McLaren F1…
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?
