McLaren shows the P1 concept at the Paris Motor Show. Due to budgetary constraints, we had to outsource the video to India, and leave the reporting to Ireland’s Student News, which reports:

“McLaren has released very few numbers and figures, but the few that they have released are still interesting. According to McLaren, the P1 has gone through rigorous aerodynamic testing, just like a Formula 1 race car and produces the highest downforce produced by any existing road car. 600 kilos to be precise and that too well below its top speed. In fact, the P1 produces five times as much downforce as a regular MP4-12C and is comparable to 12C GT3 racer.”

“Just like the F1, the P1 has a body made completely out of carbon fiber, the mid-engined hypercar takes weight reduction even further by making use of new weight saving techniques. The car is built around a carbon monocoque and the roof structure and the safety cage is a carbon structure called MonoCage, an improvement over the MonoCell from the MP4-12C and the X1 one-off vehicle. “
