The McLaren P1 already has many impressive numbers to its name, including 903 hp, a maximum torque of 900Nm, a commanding price tag of $1.3 million, and a confirmed top speed of 217.5mph. Introduced by McLaren as not just the successor to the iconic F1 super car, the P1 also marks the 50th anniversary of when Bruce McLaren first founded the company. Fitting of his legacy, we've seen the P1 already accomplish some pretty impressive feats since its 2013 Geneva Motor Show debut, including an impressive display of drifting and thrashing on ice. Now, after "extensive testing" by McLaren's development program, officials have revealed that it can run from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds before reaching 124mph in 6.8 seconds and 186 in 16.5 seconds. If you need a reference point, that's 5.5 seconds faster than the F1. Perhaps equally impressive, it can stop from 62mph in less than 100 feet. Following some final testing, you can expect all 375 models to be built ahead of their mid-2015 release.
