The official figures are in, and they make for tasty reading.
With McLaren delivering the first customer car, the initial batch of official performance stats have been laid bare for all to see. So without further ado, here they are: 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds, 0-124 mph in 6.8 seconds (over a second quicker than the Porsche 918 Spyder), 0-186 mph in 16.5 seconds (5.5 seconds quicker than the F1), and a standing quarter mile in 9.8 seconds at 152 mph. Top speed is electronically-limited to 217 mph because anything faster than that would be just ridiculous.
It appears the P1 can stop just as impressively as it can sprint. McLaren claims 62 mph to standstill is completed in just 30 meters, while braking from 186 mph takes a mere 6.2 seconds, covering just 246 m of tire-screeching tarmac. Being a hybrid its green credentials are equally remarkable.The P1 boasts an electric-only range of 6.8 miles, emits 194g/km of CO2 and returns an astonishing 34 mpg combined (around 28 mpg US). So there you have it. LaFerrari, the gauntlet has been well and truly dropped.
