With only a few months remaining until the first deliveries will be made to just 375 customers, the development programme for the McLaren P1 continues to accelerate as it nears its end. This latest stage in the rigorous testing process for the McLaren P1 has been captured in a short film.
As part of durability testing, the development team recently travelled with the McLaren P1 to the frozen landscapes of the Arctic Circle, in northern Sweden. Here, the car was put through its paces and tested to the extremes, in some of the most hostile and toughest conditions on the planet.
The testing schedule continues at pace, with XP prototypes running extensively across the globe.
The culmination of this testing McLaren attention to detail will be showcased over the summer, when the McLaren P1 will publicly demonstrate the power available from the mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and highly effective electric motor which generate 916PS, with a number of dynamic displays. As plans for the 50th anniversary celebrations for McLaren continue, it has also been confirmed that the latest model from McLaren Automotive will feature as part of the planned activities at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
