Chile, and South America in general, is not really know for its supercar scene. But as it turns out, the country has a small group of elite citizens that enjoy the high life, as shown with their cars. After the Pagani Zonda RS, now an absolutely unique Purple McLaren P1 has been spotted out and about in Chile.
The beautiful hyper car was spotted filling up at a petrol station next to rough and tumble pickups and SUVs; cars better suited to the country’s mountainous roads than a fragile speed machine. The Purple McLaren P1 features a unique metallic finish, somewhat similar to the one of a kind paint job we saw a while ago on C J Wilson’s car. It also has clear-coated carbon fiber wings, roof, and mirrors, plus matte black wheels.
McLaren P1 Tech Specs:
-Aero-led design produces more downforce than any other production road car
-916PS (903 hp) generated by 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine coupled to an electric motor gives tremendous power and instant throttle response with an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph)
-Active ride height, and aerodynamics work with large adjustable rear wing to give ground effect suction and optimised downforce
-IPAS (Instant Power Assist System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System) offer instant boost of power and straight-line speed
-The MonoCage is one of the lightest carbon fibre full-body structures used in any road car to date, weighing 90kg. This weight includes the roof and lower structures, roof snorkel, engine air intake cavity, battery and power electronics housing
-MonoCage chassis includes fibres more than five times the strength of the best grade titanium, and includes the use of Kevlar
-0 to 300 km/h in less than 17 seconds – five seconds quicker than the legendary McLaren F1
