New McLaren P1 - opening the door! (exclusive video)
New McLaren P1, in action(on stand) with opening door. World premier. Paris.27-28.09.12. Power to weight ratio will be more than 600PS per tonne. And 1 000 000 Euros price Press info: The McLaren P1 follows in the footsteps of the classic McLaren F1 as the 'ultimate car' offering. The name ties in with Grand Prix racing. P1 means first place -- and McLaren has 180 GP victories in its 46 year Formula One history -- or position one on the grid (McLaren has scored 153 pole positions). There is also heritage in that name: the McLaren F1 was initially known as Project 1, or P1 The McLaren F1 was lauded as the greatest supercar of its era when it was first shown 20 years ago. At the time, it was the world's most technologically advanced and fastest supercar. The McLaren P1 leverages five decades of McLaren's motorsport skills. It was designed from the outset to prioritise aerodynamic performance and spent many hours in a wind tunnel and using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) aerodynamic modelling -- just like a Formula One car. The new McLaren P1 has much higher levels of downforce than any current road car -- 600kg is achieved well below maximum speed. That is approximately five times as much downforce as a McLaren 12C. Its margin over most other high performance supercars is even greater. The McLaren P1's downforce is similar to current sports racing cars, including the 12C GT3 racer. 'Of course, the McLaren P1 will have an immensely powerful engine, superb brakes and state of the art suspension controls,' says Programme Director Paul Mackenzie. Power to weight ratio will be more than 600PS per tonne. 'But a major reason for its extraordinary performance is its high level of downforce and its all round aerodynamic excellence. They do not just improve stability, handling, roadholding and braking at high speed. They also improve agility and driver confidence at much lower speeds. Our goal was to get great levels of downforce at lower speeds, and we have achieved that. It is a major Boost to driving enjoyment, and to a driver's feeling of being in total control. This goal -- racing car-like track performance from a road car -- was one of the primary targets for McLaren P1. 'It reflects the fact that many buyers of today's fastest supercars do use them increasingly on the race track, at special owner events,' says Mackenzie. 'We wanted a car that would feel like a proper racing car. And then could be driven home in great comfort and refinement. In other words, a real McLaren but with an even broader breadth of ability.' The McLaren P1 also has a DRS (drag reduction system) function, like a Grand Prix car, to reduce downforce and increase straight line speed. But while a Formula 1 car has a moveable flap in the rear wing, the McLaren P1's rear wing's pitch is adjusted. In addition to the adjustable 'active' rear wing, the McLaren P1's aerodynamic performance is optimised using two flaps mounted under the body ahead of the front wheels. These are also actively controlled, and change angle automatically to optimise performance, Boosting downforce and aero efficiency, increasing both speed and driver confidence. The flaps operate through a range of 0-60 degrees. The rear wing and front flaps work together to Boost handling, braking and straight line performance. The active aerodynamics ensures totally consistent handling and driving behavior. The rear wing can also act as an airbrake when deployed. All the body panels are carbon fibre to reduce weight. This carries on a McLaren innovation: it was the first company to offer a full carbon body Grand Prix car (in 1981) and the first to offer a full carbon body road car (the F1). There are also very few body panels. The McLaren P1 has large clamshell single-moulded front and rear panels, which are attached to the central carbon MonoCage, and that's it, apart from two small access flaps in the rear, a front bonnet and the two doors. This reduces weight and the number of shutlines, creating a cleaner appearance.. The large carbon panels are also multi-functional, with integrated scoops and ducts to Boost aero performance and cooling. The panels are extraordinarily thin and light whilst being very strong. Lightness, as with all McLaren road cars, was a priority for the McLaren P1. If one component can do the work of two, or more, it replaces the need for separate components. 'This approach is more weight efficient, but it does require more complex structures, with fewer parts but more design time,' notes Chief Design Engineer Parry-Williams.

It previews the follow-up to the long-awaited McLaren F1 successor. The P1's styling is influenced by the McLaren MP4-12C but with added body panels to make the car look aggressive. It will not have the same three seat layout as its predecessor, the McLaren F1. The design of the headlights is also reminiscent of the McLaren logo. Although there has been no official information given, secondary sources have indicated that it could feature anything from a new twin turbo V10 or the same 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine from the MP4-12C combined with a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) for a combined power output of 976 PS (718 kW; 963 bhp). This may enable the P1 to reach a theoretical top speed of approximately 384 km/h (239 mph) with production beginning in early 2013 and sales taking place towards the end of the year.[1] It debuted at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.[2] Tom Moore from The Manufacturer magazine revealed that the P1 will cost £700,000 before taxes and that McLaren Automotive plans to limit production to just 500.[1] As with the McLaren F1 road car of 1992, the McLaren P1 is a mid-engine design that uses a carbon fibre monocoque and roof structure safety cage concept called MonoCage, which is a development of the MonoCell used in the current MP4-12C and MP4-12C Spider upgrade that came out in early 2012. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McLaren_P1 Production-ready McLaren P1™confirmed for 83rd International Motor Show in Geneva With one month until all eyes in the automotive world turn to Switzerland, McLaren Automotive has confirmed that the global debut of the production-ready McLaren P1™ will be at the 83rd International Motor Show in Geneva, and taken the opportunity to give a glimpse of the, so far unseen, interior. The latest insight confirms that the McLaren P1™ will adopt a race-inspired digital dash readout, and gives further information relating to the levels of performance that can be expected with a highly-focused 'Race' mode. The visuals demonstrate what the driver will see as the McLaren P1™ transitions into a fully-focussed track car. On selecting Race mode, the large double element adjustable 'active' rear wing extends, and the pitch of the wing alters into an optimal aerodynamic position. In Race mode the screen includes a bank of lights across the top, which illuminate green, followed by red and finally blue. These act as a shift indicator, as in a Formula 1 car. More exact details about the McLaren P1™, and Race mode, will be unveiled as we get closer to Geneva. Geneva press day information: The final, production-ready McLaren P1™ will make its global debut at the 83rd International Motor Show in Geneva, and the McLaren Automotive press conference will take place at 11.15am CET (10.15am GMT), Tuesday 5 March.
