McLaren P1, a Dream Car Come True

The new McLaren P1 will be officially unveiled at this year's Paris Motor Show. McLaren did not reveal many technical details prior to the event, but it has confirmed its power-to-weight ratio will exceed 600bhp per ton. The McLaren F1 with its 1140kg kerbweight and 627bhp V12 engine developed 'only' 550bhp per ton.

"The McLaren P1 will be the result of 50 years of racing and road car heritage. Twenty years ago we raised the supercar performance car with the McLaren F1 and our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again." - McLaren Chairman Ron Dennis
