The very first McLaren P1 under the hammer

The very first McLaren P1 under the hammer


Looking for a McLaren P1? This is your chance to get a special copy. The first P1 will go under the hammer later this month.

First of all, but what does that say? Is it the very first car built, the first customer car, the very first chassis number? Well, it’s the very first McLaren P1 that left the factory gates in Woking, England, and was registered to a customer. The copy in question was delivered to its wealthy client in October 2013. The car’s chassis number is 023. A personal letter from P1 builder Frank Stephenson is included with the car. The then design boss of McLaren Automotive said: “It was a great pleasure that my team and I witnessed you take our first child around the world”. A signed brochure is also available, as is a specific example of measurement and other literature.

Not very pleased

Now more than 7.5 years later, the sports group painted Vulcano Yellow with English registration is in the hands of a second owner, albeit within the same family. The odometer shows 3,666 miles, converted as 5800 km, so you can tell that the two English owners were not very happy. You should not assume that P1 is ignored. The sports coupé visited McLaren Birmingham last September and in 2018 the hybrid sports car received a new hybrid battery from dealer McLaren Ascot despite its low mileage.

This McLaren P1 has an Autovisie version!

Towards the end of its life, McLaren came up with the best of the P1 track version P1 GTR. It was during the development of the Senna that McLaren produced an additional model of the road version of the P1. That is P1 number 376.

The combined power of the eight-cylinder and electric motor is 916 hp, which is put on the road through the rear wheels.

Along with the sports coupe, McLaren competed with the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Ferrari LaFerrari. Unlike the two competitors, the P1 is only available as a coupe. With 376 units, it is also more exclusive than the 918 units of the Porsche and the 709 units of the LaFerrari.
