In detail
overview

The McLaren P1 supercar is a marvel. The successor to the hugely popular McLaren F1, the P1 is a plug-in hybrid, meaning that it harnesses electric power alongside F1 technology. The two-seater supercar, which started out as a concept car, is mid-engine, rear-wheel drive and incredibly fast - in other words, the perfect car for anyone who's serious about driving. It's also highly collectible: despite the hefty price tag, all of the P1's limited run of 375 have sold out. Fortunately, Signature customers can take one for a spin whenever they like!

PERFORMANCE

The P1 has a lot to live up to. Its predecessor, the F1, won the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours race, has incredible acceleration and a top speed of 243MPH. Incredibly, however, the P1 is not just as good, it's better. A competitor to cars such as the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport or the bone-shaking (and incredibly fun) Arial Atom V8, the P1 can take you from 0-62MPH in just 2.8 seconds.

That's probably less time than it takes to read the last sentence. If you've got a little more time on your hands, furthermore, the P1 can do 0-186MPH in 16.5 seconds, making it faster than almost every car on the road. It may be limited to 217MPH, but you'll have rather a lot of fun getting there. The amazing acceleration is partly due to the car's composition.

McLaren are the world leaders in carbon fibre chassis, and have combined a carbon fibre monocoque with their roll cage concept MonoCage to produce a lightweight, robust car that weighs just 1,395kg.

The P1 features a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 engine combined with an electric motor, which produce 903BHP and 664 ft lb of torque. Peak torque is achieved at a relatively low 4000RPM, largely because the electric motor weighs in with its 192lb ft of torque while the turbos are finding their feet.

Braking performance is also very impressive. Made from a carbon-ceramic material, they'll bring the P1 to a standstill in just 2.26 seconds in the dry, and in significantly less distance than your average car.

 
Driving

The McLaren P1 supercar delivers an excellent driving experience, and even a pleasingly earthy engine noise for a car that's part electric. Several modes are available, including: Normal, Sport, Track and Race. No prizes for guessing what they're for, but it's worth noting that each increase in mode racks up the gearshift responsiveness.

To get maximum performance, all you have to do is engage the 'boost' function and push the IPAS button, which adds in power from the electric motor, when you're near full throttle. Although it's certainly an adrenalin-fuelled driving experience, it's a surprisingly soft and easy car to drive, making it perfect for lengthy trips.

The suspension saves you from any nasty bumps, while the incredibly reactive steering ensures that your inputs have the right effect at the right time. Of course, if you're less worried about a comfortable ride and more concerned about track performance, then hold down Race mode: the car will drop five centimetres, increasing spring rates, and raise its spoiler to maximise downforce.

It's here you can really see that McLaren have achieved their aim of producing a driver's car - it's so quick, reliable and responsive you'll surprise yourself with your performance on the track.

 
EXTERIOR

The magnificent carbon fibre P1 is very obviously a product of the wind tunnel. Its sleek body features a low slung nose, complete with headlights that resemble the McLaren logo. There are attractive, deep air vents on each wing of the supercar, which funnel cooling air to the P1's vital organs.

The rear is a thing of beauty. A curvaceous bottom, adorned with wide exhaust pipes and a sexy rear spoiler, is amplified by a butterfly-shaped brake light which will have drivers behind you gasping in awe - assuming they can keep up, that is.

 
INTERIOR

Rent the McLaren P1 supercar and you'll see that the interior is stark yet appealing. It's a serious racer's car: no carpets, little soundproofing, and carbon-fibre seats that don't boast the luxury of cushioning. It might sound uncomfortable, but it's actually guaranteed to give you a brilliant driving position that you can maintain all day.

The interior contains an exquisitely honed carbonfibre centre console, which contains the driving controls and intelligent infotainment system. The steering wheel is also carbon fibre, and has a rather futuristic design that makes it much more control panel than wheel.

It matches the car's aesthetics perfectly, and provides easy access to vital controls such as the engine start, DRS and IPAS controls.

 
WHY HIRE

If you care about high-performance driving, rent our McLaren P1 for an absolutely memorable experience. It's a sleek, beautiful, high performance machine that will respond with alacrity to your every input.

Whether you want to test your driving skills in a supercar that can only really be beaten by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport - on a good day - or just turn every single head on a street as you zoom past, this is the car for you.

We'd go so far as to say that this kind of car should be experienced by every car enthusiast at least once: to prove what an engine, four wheels and a few bits of composite material are really capable of.
