916 hp obtained thanks to the combination of a twin-turbo V8 and an electric motor. Impressive. But it takes that to catapult this hypercar at over 300 km / h!
Presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013, McLaren’s P1 is one of the British manufacturer’s most ultimate cars. Its performance: 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 350 km / h, electronically limited! Such feats are possible thanks to the combination of a large twin-turbo V8 and a smaller electric motor.. But can it really reach such speeds?
Obviously, yes! And on the open road, what’s more! Finally, not just any road either, the famous German Autobahn without speed limit. This owner, accompanied by his lucky teddy bear, will not hesitate to push his beauty several times beyond 300 km / h! It also accelerates very hard! During the video, his 100 to 200 km / h is measured just above 4 seconds, less time than it takes a certain Chiron to perform the same exercise. A real missile.
Not all of these spikes in speed are easy. Indeed, we see the driver repeatedly pressing the two buttons on his steering wheel. These are used to operate the KERS and DRS. Yes, like on a Formula 1! The first gives the car an acceleration boost to reach its maximum speed more quickly. The second modifies the position of the various aerodynamic appendages in order to reduce downforce and increase maximum speed! We let you enjoy the feat in video:
