The cocktail of style speed and innovative technology rocked the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. I am talking about The all new McLaren’s P1 plug-in hyper supercar which stolen the hearts of people at the 83rd Geneva Auto Show. It will go on production limited for only 375 by later this year cost you $1.15 million(£866,000). It’s rivals are the Ferrari LaFerrari, the Lamborghini Veneno.
The all new McLaren P1 powered by the combined force of two highly-efficient powerplants, A mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine is substantially enhanced featuring, for example, larger turbochargers and a highly effective electric motor, to give a combined output of 916PS (903 bhp) and a maximum torque figure of 900N, The electric motor gets power from 212-lb battery pack weighs just 96kg mated with a 7-speed twin-clutch auto transmission. It emits less than 200g co2/km on the combined cycle. It also combines The race-inspired PAS (Instant Power Assist System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System) which allows to rocket from 0- 100km/h in less than 3 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h under 7 seconds, and 0 to 300 km/h in 17 seconds with a electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h(217 mph).
The McLaren P1™can be driven in a variety of modes, powered by the engine and electric motor together, or solely by the electric motor. This ensures versatility and ease of transportation, allows use in low emission zones and residential driving is optimised with near-silent running. In E-mode, the McLaren P1™ can travel more than 10km with electric-only power – enough for most city journeys. When the battery is empty, the petrol engine will automatically start to maintain drive and charge the battery.
The Drag Reduction System used on the McLaren P1™ is a technology similar to that employed on Formula 1 cars. Speed is increased by reducing the amount of drag on the rear wing and, where the MP4-28 has a moveable flap on the rear wing, the McLaren P1™ has a wing that reduces in angle to lower drag by 23%. The system immediately deactivates when the button is released, or if the driver touches the brake pedal.
IPAS is designed to deliver power rapidly for high performance acceleration, and provides 179PS of instant additional power. In developing the IPAS technology for the McLaren P1™, power delivery was prioritised over energy storage. This is achieved through a groundbreaking, lightweight battery pack, which offers greater power density than any other automotive battery pack on sale today.
It also featuring a flat-bottom, 3-spoke steering wheel, P Zero Corsas, hydro-pneumatic RaceActive Chassis Control system, four driver-selected modes, a new carbon-ceramic composite, military grade aluminum alloy wheel.
At last I would like to say that new McLaren P1 is coming to give sleepless nights to the world. What you think? Please be open to give your view.
