but tuned to 727hp and with an added 177hp hybrid motor to boost power to 904hp.

The P1 has a base price of £866,000, but most buyers will probably use the McLaren Special Operations team to modify the cars to their personal specifications. Customers can come to the McLaren factory as their car is being built and watch it move through the production line.

When production reaches its full potential, McLaren expects one P1 to be built each day.

As of August, the P1 was sold out in the Americas, Asia and the Middle East. Some cars were still available in Europe.
