McLaren has pulled the wraps from its long-rumoured P1, a hyper concept it promises will preview the world's quickest series-production car.
As the fabled successor to the legendary McLaren F1, once the world's fastest production supercar, there is a lot riding on the P1.
According to McLaren boss Antony Sheriff though, the goal of the P1 is not to be the fastest at the top end, but simply the "quickest and most rewarding" series-production road car ever put to the circuit. Easy, right?
McLaren remains tight-lipped about exactly what is driving the P1, meaning that until its proper unveiling in Paris later this month, fans can only watch and wait.
Speculation is rife, of course. Reports out of Europe suggest the P1 will draw power from an up-rated version of the MP4-12C's 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8, combined with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System to develop more than 520kW.
Sheriff is confident the P1 is up to the task, however.
"Our goal is to make the McLaren P1 the most exciting, most capable, most technologically advanced and most dynamically accomplished supercar ever made."
Watch for more details to come at the Paris Motor Show in the coming weeks.
