A McLaren P1 in virtually as-new condition has gone live on online auction platform Collecting Cars.
The exceptional single-owner hypercar is one of just 375 examples and shows a staggeringly low 433 miles from new.
Specified from the factory with Elite Fire Black paint, the car remains completely original with no blemishes or repairs. The car was recently detailed to showcase the exceptional condition of the bodywork and optional satin finish Stealth alloy wheels.
The interior cabin is also pristine with no wear or damage to the Carbon Fibre Racing Seats, trimmed in Carbon Black leather and Alcantara, and accented by Harissa Red stitching.
Weighing just 1395kg, the P1 boasts meticulous construction techniques, centred on a lightweight carbon fibre monoco que chassis weighing only 90kg and clothed in carbon body panels. The twin-turbocharged 3.8L V8 produces 727hp and is further assisted by a 177hp electric motor, giving the P1 the capability to accelerate from zero to 62mph in just 2.8 seconds, zero to 124mph in 6.8 seconds, and going on to a top speed of 217mph.
Also featured are F1-derived active aerodynamics, as well as an Instant Power Assist System (IPAS), Drag Reduction System (DRS), and a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS).
Accompanying the car are the third- and fourth-year annual servicing documents, including the most recent scheduled maintenance at 337 miles at a cost of $7,062.42. This included a detailed inspection, with high-voltage safety check, front and rear suspension tightness checks, a lithium-ion battery condition check, along with the usual consumables.
Edward Lovett, founder of Collecting Cars, said:
“The McLaren P1 is an incredible contemporary supercar, and this sale represents a great opportunity to acquire an exceptionally low-mileage, one-owner car. The P1 ushered in a new era of petrol-electric performance and remains highly collectible as one of the hypercar ‘holy trinity’ of its era.”
