2014 McLaren P1 by ASMA Design

ASMA Design has a history of building some pretty impressive programs for a variety of supercars and while it technically hasn’t started on one for the McLaren P1 , it’s safe to say that judging by the rendering it released on what the P1 would look like after it’s done with it, ASMA should do it as soon as humanly possible.

One look and you can immediately tell that the P1’s level of aesthetic wonder just went to overdrive. The added vents and ducts, in particular, do more than just making the P1 look more tiger-fierce, but the improved air flow and aerodynamic stability are all equally important in giving the supercar more balance.

After all, when you’re talking about a car that features a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, V-8 engine that produces a staggering 903 horsepower, you’re going to be need to be able to control all those horses running under its hood. Add that to the fact that the P1 is capable of hitting 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds to go with a top speed of 218 mph makes us wonder whether ASMA Design has a performance tune in store for the McLaren exotic.

Maybe somewhere close to 1,100 ponies, perhaps?

We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, but holy mackerel, wouldn’t that be just sick?!

McLaren P1

McLaren unveiled the P1 back in 2013 at the same time as its biggest competitor: the Ferrari LaFerrari. While its hard to match wits with a car like the LaFerrari, the P1 certainly has the credentials to do so, thanks in large part to a revolutionary new design that serves as a nice complement to the powerhouse engine underneath its hood.

The P1 is powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8 that delivers a total of 800 horsepower and combined with a twin-clutch transmission with an embedded electric motor to create a total power figure of 903 horsepower and an estimated 1,100 pound-feet of torque at launch.

With this amazing output, the P1 will go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.

The P1 is limited to just 375 units with each model priced at $1.15 million.
