PARIS, Sept 20 — McLaren has chosen the upcoming motor show in the City of Lights to unveil its P1 supercar.
“The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage. Twenty years ago we raised the supercar performance bar with the McLaren F1 and our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again,” explained Ron Dennis, who helms McLaren Automotive.
“Our aim is not necessarily to be the fastest in absolute top speed but to be the quickest and most rewarding series production road car on a circuit,” adds McLaren MD Antony Sheriff. Performance-wise, the supercar should at least be on the same level as the brand new 12C Spider (625hp, top speed of 328km/h and capability to go from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds).
McLaren fans will have to wait for the Paris Motor Show, from September 29 to October 14, to get more info on the speedster’s specs. The model on display in Paris will be a concept, with the company aiming to launch a production model by the end of 2013. — AFP/Relaxnews
