When it comes to the upcoming McLaren P1 we have seen it all, but we do not know any concrete details about it. How’s that? On one hand, we may say we know how it looks because we have seen a concept version of it, but we all know that the production version may feature a slightly different design. Additionally, everyone is speculating about its engine, but McLaren hasn’t released any final specifications just yet.
So you see, you may think you know a lot about the upcoming P1 supercar, but in fact none of us know any real details on it.
Despite the missing details, everyone has to agree that the P1 will be an amazing supercar according to what we saw with the concept, what McLaren promised us and what people who have tested the prototype version have said.
With this is mind you shouldn’t be surprised to hear that McLaren has been flooded with orders for their upcoming supercar. In fact, they have received so many requests that they are now ready to close the order book.
A McLaren owner who placed a deposit for the P1 suggested that the company had already taken deposits for about 120 units and will close order book in mid-February. We can’t be too sure what this means exactly, since initial details suggested McLaren plans to develop a total of 500 units.
From the looks of it, this closing of the books is just for the initial stage of ordering, but we can’t stop thinking that McLaren may have chosen to reduce the number of P1s it will manufacture. We also have to take into account that the buyer who passed on this information may be full of hooey. We’ll see…
