Fire Black McLaren P1 0 600x376 at Up Close with Fire Black McLaren P1

As we mentioned yesterday while showing you this magnificent picture of six P1s at McLaren Newport Beach, these guys have sold more P1s than an other representative of the brand anywhere in the world. This Fire Black McLaren P1 is the latest they’ve shifted.

On the surface, this car looks like a plain old black P1. But look closer and you will notice it has a unique kind of glow not found on ordinary black paint jobs. That is because Fire Black McLaren P1 benefits from a special paint formula containing Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, and Magenta orbs that become visible under direct light.

Fire Black McLaren P1 comes with a simple black leather, Alcantara and carbon interior, and has exposed door panels and skirts, as well as rear spoiler. But it does feature red McLaren logos and P1 lettering on the side, which is a nice little touch to make it even more unique. This car has found a home in Orange County.
