Official images of the McLaren P1 production car have leaked online ahead of its unveiling at next week’s 2013 Geneva motor show.

The leaked press shots – which appeared on Russian website AutoWP – confirm the highly anticipated road car will be almost identical to the P1 concept that debuted at the 2012 Paris motor show in September.

Distinguishing the production McLaren P1 from the blazing orange concept are new carbonfibre vents at the corners of the front bumper, a more intricate mesh pattern across the rear, a set of road tyres, and a striking bright yellow body colour.

The images surface just one week from the world premiere of the McLaren P1, which will take place at the Swiss show on March 5.

Late last week, the British sports car manufacturer confirmed its spiritual successor to the McLaren F1 would be powered by a hybrid system capable of producing 673kW and 900Nm.

Teaming an uprated version of the MP4-12C’s twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 with an electric motor and a lightweight battery pack, the McLaren P1 will be capable of both blistering acceleration and zero-emissions driving for up to 10km in pure-electric mode.

More details of the McLaren P1 will be revealed in the lead up to its unveiling in Geneva next week.

    • Hung Low

      What are you on about? Do you mean a flat plane 180 degree crank?

      • Frostie

        Flat plane and SBC cranks are pretty much the same thing.

    I love McLaren. I worship the F1. I want to like this car. I have tried to like this car. But… its just too over the top. It just looks like a reject Hot Wheels design. 

    I just don’t want one like I want a Agera R or 918… and it saddens me.

    They shouldve done a hipo diesel instead of a heavy hybrid!

    That’s a lot of horses!

    I hope that camo it was seen in is an option!

    The car doesn’t seem to have much torque considering the electric motor and the huge HP figure. AMG’s with forced induction have been getting 700 Nm + since the old M155 days (not to mention the last hurrah in the SLR saw output closer to 850).

    This thing is in desperate need of a hollywood hills plastic surgeon. Makes Barbara Streisand look like she has a pretty nose.

    How are these ‘leaked’? They’re on McLaren’s press site.
