All good things must come to an end.
It all started in the summer of 2013 and now it’s come to an end. Production of the McLaren P1 has officially been completed, with the 375th and last example rolling off the line at the McLaren Production Center in Woking, UK. At full capacity, each P1 took a total of 17 days to build and only one car was completed per day. Each and every car was bespoke, built specifically to its owner’s request in consultation with the McLaren Special Operations (MSO) team. The whole idea was so that no two P1s were exactly alike.
As for the final P1, it’s been finished in pearlescent orange, which, according to McLaren, "echoes the shade of the 64th and final McLaren F1 road car." P1 #375 (pictured here alongside the first P1) also features subtle styling elements in raw carbon fiber weave, with the finish only visible externally on the splitter, diffuser and the aerodynamic blades along the lower body. The lightweight wheels are finished in silver. The interior also features bespoke touches by MSO. Thanks to its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8/electric motor combo, the P1 produces a total of 903 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. 0-62 mph happens in a mere 2.8 seconds and top speed is 217 mph.
However, just as the P1 ends production, MSO has officially started work on the first full-body visual carbon fiber P1, where all painted panels will be replaced. So that’s that, and the McLaren P1 has rightly deserved its spot in hypercar history.
