A purple carbon fiber McLaren P1 has just hit the streets of London, joining the green, blue, orange, and chameleon colored carbon P1s to recently leave the company’s Woking technology center.
While the hybrid hypercar wasn’t originally available with an exposed carbon fiber skin, McLaren later announced it as an expensive option for already-delivered cars. While it isn’t known how many more P1s are currently or soon set to receive carbon fiber bodies, we think we’ve just stumbled upon arguably the best looking P1 to date.
Captured here by Henry JW Wood Photography, the car made its public debut in London over the weekend before heading off to its home in Switzerland.
The color has been dubbed ‘K Purple’ and adorns almost every body panel of the car. As with most other P1s, more traditional grey carbon fiber is found on the front bumper and splitter, wing mirrors, doors, side skirts and rear fascia.
Completing the exterior look are the matte black wheels and yellow brake calipers.
Few people outside of McLaren or the select few owners know how much it costs to have a P1 converted to exposed carbon but inevitably, it’s well into the six digit range.
