One of the world’s most desirable cars, the McLaren P1, has reached the end of its lifecycle
The British sports car manufacturer has built the 375th and final example of its hybrid hypercar.
The McLaren P1 was sold out only eight months after the car’s official debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show – not bad at all for a vehicle carrying a $1,350,000 price tag. McLaren began production of the P1 in summer 2013 and, by the time the first car was delivered in September 2013, all 375 cars had already been sold.
The first production McLaren P1 paid tribute to company founder Bruce McLaren and each car that followed was custom-built to the precise specifications of its owner, with input from the team at McLaren Special Operations (MSO). Actually, McLaren claims no two cars are the same.
On average, the bespoke Ultimate Series production line within the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) finished one P1 per day, with each individual model taking 17 days to complete.
The final production McLaren P1 features a pearlescent orange paint which echoes the shade of the 64th and final McLaren F1 road car, chassis #075, which went on to inspire the Volcano Orange paint that is available today across McLaren’s lineup.
The 375th McLaren P1 also features subtle styling elements in raw carbon fiber weave, with the finish only visible externally on the splitter, diffuser and the aerodynamic blades along the lower body. The super-lightweight wheels are finished in silver.
Inside, the P1 gets bespoke styling touches by MSO, including gloss black detailing for the switchgear, instrument bezels and air conditioning vents, as well as black and orange Alcantara details on the lightweight carbon fiber-shelled racing seats.
