McLaren P1 Already Sold Out

Maybe it’s the fact that McLaren readied their hyper car sooner than Ferrari and Porsche, or maybe it’s just good publicity. In any case, all 375 production units of the McLaren P1 hyper car have already been sold. Not bad going, considering the car costs well over £1 Million.

Most of the P1 orders are said to have come from outside Europe, with 75 percent of the customers opting for some sort of exclusive feature added to it by McLaren Special Operations center. The specialist at Woking have reportedly built eight customer cars so far, so there is still a long way to go before the P1 gets consigned to the history books.

McLaren is probably regretting setting the 375 units limit now. They could have made more money. They still can, of course, by increasing the capacity due to high demand. Porsche is going to make 918 units of the 918 Spyder, and as for Ferrari, they are certainly making more than 400 units of the LaFerrari.

Apparently, Top Gear had something to do with the P1 running out so quickly:

“We set ourselves the target to be sold out by year-end off the back of first cars being delivered to customers in September, the fiftieth anniversary of McLaren’s founding,” a company spokesman told Top Gear. “Demand for the car has been consistently strong since Geneva. A combination of the first feedback from customers and Top Gear’s review of the P1 has seen us cross the line a little sooner than we had planned…”
