McLaren P1 power figure is official: 903PS

McLaren P1 power figure is official: 903PS

The McLaren P1 is one of the most anticipated supercars of the year, and justly so. The official figures have just been released, and as expected, they are staggering: 903PS and 900Nm. 

Emissions are the other big surprise - the P1 clocks in at under 200g/km, a figure that any self-respecting mid-size car in Europe would be proud of. The P1 achieves this by combining a specially reworked version of the engine in the MP4-12C. Displacing 3.8-litres and with the aid of two turbochargers, it develops 727PS at 7500rpm and 720Nm. An electric motor provides 176PS and 260Nm. The peak torque figure reads at 4000rpm. 

The electric motor's entire shove is available at the touch of a button on the steering wheel, and this feature is called the Instant Power Assist System. McLaren says that this helps the P1's throttle response ape that of a naturally-aspirated engine. The car can cover up to 9.6km on electric power alone from a battery pack that the company claims has higher energy density than any others'. The batteries can also be charged in two hours via a plug-in charger. 

The company hasn't made a statement on the car's performance, but 0-100kmph should take less than 3 seconds and top speed should exceed 320kmph comfortably.
