It's not really a surprise since McLaren was originally planning to produce as many as 500 units but ended up producing 375 after some clients expressed their concern about the exclusivity of the hybrid hypercar.

As a refresher, the McLaren P1 is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 combined with an electric motor to offer a total output of 903 Hp. The British hypercar is able to hit 100 Km/h in 2.8 seconds, the 0 to 200 Km/h in 6.8 seconds and 0 to 300 Km/h in 16.5 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 350 Km/h.

It also might have lapped the Nürburgring in 6:47 but it seems that McLaren have no intention of making this time official. The British supercar maker has a different point of view when it comes to the race to the fastest ring lap time. But we're sure McLaren will find a way to make the lap time confirmed "unofficially" (or did they already do it?).
