Lately we’ve been covering so many different McLaren 675LT models in various guises and colors that we kind of forgot about the big dog McLaren, the P1. This hyper car has one of the greatest color palettes among its rivals. The latest we get to drool over is this Matte Orange McLaren P1 spotted at DC Exotics one Year Anniversary super car meet in Washington.
Organized by Lamborghini Washington dealership and owners club, the DC Exotics show brought together a vast number of high-end exotic cars from all brands, the majority of them, naturally, Lamborghinis. But among them all the Matte Orange McLaren P1 was a head and shoulders above the rest. Nothing came close to this bad boy’s level of prestige, beauty, and wow factor.
McLaren P1 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
