The McLaren P1 receives 34mpg on the EU combined cycle, and the electric motor offers a range of 6.8 miles in full electric mode.

Additionally, the P1 features a bespoke Akebono braking system comprised of specially formulated carbon ceramic discs that allow it to stop from 62mph in a distance of 99 feet.

McLaren, a company that comes from the top ranks of F1 did not disappoint with the P1. McLaren used all of the knowledge acquired through Formula 1 and applied it here – it’s a supercar that combines groundbreaking technology with strikingly beautiful design.
