McLaren P1 almost sold out

The McLaren P1 (pictured) is almost sold out

The last time McLaren decided to build a supercar to beat all supercars was with the McLaren F1 but, despite it’s huge ability and now iconic status – and huge value – they had to give up making it after just 64 cars as they couldn’t find buyers. Fortunately – for McLaren are a bit stretched non all fronts at the moment – it seems that history isn’t repeating itself with the new McLaren P1 as reports today suggest the P1 is all but sold out.

Autocar are reporting there are just a handful of the 375 P1s left to sell, with the P1 allocation for America, the Middle East and Asia already sold out and just a handful of cars left for Europe and other parts of the world.

That almost fits in with what Cars UK heard last week from a McLaren source, who told us that there were ‘around 50′ cars still left to sell, which even if that is closer to the truth than ‘almost sold out’ is a strong performance.

There may have been a bit of a surge in orders from the US recently after the P1 was on show at Pebble beach, but with its 3.8 litre V8 and electric help producing 903bhp and 0-62mph in under 3 seconds, that’s no surprise.

And the thought that the P1 may one day end up growing significantly in value just like the F1 – evidenced at Pebble Beach with the $8.5 million sale of a McLaren F1 – won’t have hurts sales either.

Now what we need to see is evidence of the P1′s performance. Word on the grapevine is that it’s good for over 240mph, will easily do a sub-7 minute lap of the Nurburgring and demolish the Top Gear track in a record time.

Prove one or all of those and the remaining P1s will fly out of the door.
