Finally, the McLaren P1. The British sports car maker unveiled its latest supercar at the 2012 Paris Motor Show this last weekend.
Twenty years after McLaren first redefined the supercar industry with the record-breaking F1 (a title it held for 13 years), the company is hoping to recapture its glory days. The P1’s all-composite carbon fiber structure should help defend McLaren’s claims to have created the “best driver’s car in the world on road and on the track”. With a boost of up to 200 horsepower, it has a good shot besting the Bugatti Veyron’s 2.5-second 0-62 mph record. But buyers will need to hold on to their horses, because it won’t be available until late 2013.
