Final McLaren P1 rolls off production line

The final McLaren P1 has rolled off the production line, ending its run of 375 state-of-the-art supercars.

Upon beginning of production in summer 2013, all cars had been sold before the first vehicle had even been delivered.

This final car is finished in pearlescent orange, which mirrors the shade that the final McLaren F1 was painted in. This car also features styling elements in raw carbon fibre weave, with the ulta-lightweight wheels finished in silver. 

On top of this, bespoke touches created by McLaren Special Operations set the car apart from the rest of the line, with gloss black detailing on the switchgear, instrument bezels and air conditioning vents.

Mike Flewitt, chief executive officer at McLaren automotive said: “The McLaren P1 has achieved more than we ever expected of it since it was first previewed little over three years ago, both as a new generation of supercar, and in enhancing the McLaren bran globally.

“As the direct ancestor to the fabled McLaren F1 – and the first in a new breed of hybrid-powered supercars – it had big shoes to fill, and it has more than succeeded.”

The McLaren was one of the first supercars to utilise a petrol-electric powertrain, enabling it to achieve 62mph in just 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 217mph.

Despite this, it can still return 34mpg on a combined cycle, as well as being able to run on electric power alone for 6.8 miles - reducing its emissions to zero at these times.
