The McLaren P1 Will Be Very Fast

How fast? Well, it’ll be powered by a mid-mounted, 3.8-liter, biturbocharged V8. This is a newer version of the engine found in the MP4-12C and 12C Spider, which has been optimized for the P1. With 727 horsepower and 531 pound-feet of torque on tap, it develops almost 200 horsepower per liter of displacement. By comparison, the 6.3-liter V-12 in the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta develops 730 horsepower, and 116 horsepower per liter of displacement. That should give a fair idea of just how potent McLaren’s engine is. Oh yeah, it’ll also shoot blue flames out the back.
