McLaren P1 Doesn’t Break A Sweat As It Casually Nudges Top Speed

The McLaren P1 was, and still is, an automotive marvel. It’s the brand’s first-ever hybrid hypercar, and the electrified powertrain and stellar performance puts it in the same exclusive club as the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder.

Which of the three is the best ultimately comes down to each individual’s taste, though the Porsche has outclassed its rivals on more than one occasions.

Nevertheless, all will give you an adrenalin rush every time you push the accelerator hard. Given, of course, that you can afford to pay the asking price, which is well over $1 million, depending on the condition of the car.

Now, we’ve seen the McLaren P1 subjected to plenty of tests. And all of them came to the conclusion that it’s one potent and agile ride. As for the latest video we came across, it shows the P1 almost hitting its top speed, which is limited to 217 mph (350 km/h).

The naught to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint is completed in 2.9 seconds, identical to the McLaren 720S, although the latter has a slightly lower top speed, at 212 mph (341 km/h).

The top speed run of the P1, which doesn’t seem to have been under full throttle all the time, took place a few days ago at Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds, a runway located in Florida.

This is where the Bugatti Chiron was taken all the way up to 261 mph (420 km/h) last month, after 2.7 miles (4.3 km). The British hybrid hypercar’s performance was demonstrated over the same distance, and you can see the entire run on the clip below.
