McLaren P1: Tradition rises again

Heartbeat

McLaren P1 Tradition rises again

So no engine or technical specifications were revealed. All that was clarified was that the P1 will have a power-to-weight ratio in excess of 600bhp per tone. Which is not to say it won’t match or beat the Veyron’s figure of 650. And it will be way more than the 550bhp per tone of its forefather, the F1. Going by its claimed weight of around 1400kg, it would have to make 800-850bhp to arrive at that power-to-weight figure. Unlike hypercars like the Lamborghini Aventador and the Pagani Zonda, the P1 seems much more compact. The kind of car that could fit into a parking spot vacated by a 911.
