Like the legendary F1 before it, McLaren's P1 hypercar has set a new benchmark for road legal sports cars.

The first of the three major hybrid supercars to see production (the 918 and LaFerrari came the following year), the P1 sets new standards for performance and handling. A 727bhp twin turbo V8 is further enhanced by a 176bhp electric motor to give a combined power output of over 900bhp. Acceleration is vicious, with a road car record standing quarter mile in just 9.8 seconds. The P1 has a theoretical 250mph top speed, but this is limited to `just` 217mph for longevity. Handling is exceptional thanks to McLaren's race derived aerodynamics and suspension. Nurburgring lap time has not been officially revealed, but McLaren claim it begins with a 6.

The full production run of 375 was sold out within weeks, despite costing close to 800,000 in the UK. Will it come out on top in it's battle with the LaFerrari and 918? We await an independent comparison with bated breath!
