McLaren has handed down a new selection of photos for its new P1 hypercar, revealed earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

These are no tyre-shredding track shots, however. There are no blazing exhausts to be seen here, but rather, the surgically clean assembly facility that hosts the production of each P1.

Taken at McLaren's Production Centre in Woking, England, these shots show the very first P1 cars to be built for customers.

Only 375 examples of the P1 will be built, at the hands of 61 expert craftsmen and technicians. Just one complete car rolling off the polished tiles each day, at the end of a 10-step process.

The one or two lucky Australians to take possession of a P1 will hand over nearly $2 million for the privilege, although each will be confined to galleries and track use only. The P1 cannot be registered for the road in Australia.

The new top-shelf McLaren is powered by a V8 petrol-electric hybrid system creating a combined 673kW and 900Nm of torque.

With power sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, McLaren says the P1 will hit 100km/h in under 3.0 seconds - nothing more specific than that, but sharp enough.

Importantly, the P1 lists a 0-200km/h time below 7.0 seconds, and the 0-300km/h sprint is complete in less than 17 seconds - making it at least five seconds quicker than the McLaren F1 hero.

Top speed is electronically limited to 350km/h.
