What's New for 2015

The McLaren P1 is all-new for 2015.

Introduction

If you're reading this, you're either an interested observer or a potential second owner of the 2015 McLaren P1. The boutique British automaker says each of the 375 examples of the P1 has already sold. That's bad news for anyone seeking what may be the "purest" driver's car among today's exotics, a class that includes the Ferrari LaFerrari, Lamborghini Aventador and the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Regardless of whether you dream or scheme for the P1, it is a car of superlatives. Each body panel and the entire two-seat passenger cell are made of carbon fiber. Active aerodynamic features, including front and rear wings, come alive at triple-digit speeds. The windswept cabin glass is inspired by fighter jet canopies. The P1, McLaren says, covers zero to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds en route to a top speed of 217 mph.

It's a small surprise, then, that the McLaren P1 achieves its meteoric performance through relatively modest hardware. A twin-turbocharged V8 engine behind the cockpit powers the P1 with 727 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque. An electric motor adds more power and immediate throttle response, contributing to a total output of 903 hp and 664 lb-ft. A seven-speed automatic transmission with manual control routes power to the rear wheels.

The P1 offers five dynamic modes. Most drivers will spend their time in Normal, Sport and Track modes, the latter two of which bolster engine, suspension and steering response. Hard-core owners who opt for Race mode will see the P1 lower its ride height, stiffen its suspension and deploy its rear wing for unearthly amounts of traction. "E-mode," meanwhile, decouples the electric motor from the gasoline engine, enabling more than 6 miles of range at speeds of up to 100 mph on battery power alone.

The P1 isn't without compromise, however. There's neither carpeting nor sound-deadening. Scant luggage space means short roads trips. The price? It includes six zeroes. Yet these are minor quibbles to buyers seeking one of today's ultimate performance cars, one that's more precise, responsive and understated than either the Ferrari or Lamborghini.

The 2015 McLaren P1 is available now. Check back for a full review of the P1, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
