McLaren have launched so many near-identical models over the last few years that we’d forgotten about this one. Which is ridiculous, as the P1 was the brand’s flagship hybrid hypercar from 2013 to 2015.
Powered by McLaren’s familiar 3.8 litre twin- turbo V8 plus a 180bhp electric motor, the P1 produced a huge >900bhp and could reach a limited top speed of 217mph. It could also drive as a pure EV for… 6 miles. Which is pretty pointless.
Still, better that than no miles right? Er… no, probably not. Which might be one of the reasons we forgot about it.
Still, previous bloggee 3D supercarBricks has remembered the P1, recreating it superbly complete with opening butterfly doors and a deployable rear spoiler.
There’s more to see at 3D’s photostream via the link, and you can check out LEGO’s rather larger version of a recent McLaren by clicking here. It might well be different McLaren model, but they all look the same to us…
