(Manama, Bahrain, 21 October 2013) McLaren Automotive today confirmed two incredible new cars will make a Middle East public debut at the Dubai International Motor Show 2013. This will be the next generation ultimate supercar, the McLaren P1™, and the latest track-only 12C GT Sprint.
Also showcased at the event, which is held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from November 5th -9th, will be the award-winning McLaren 12C and 12C Spider high performance sports cars for the road.
The incredible and eagerly anticipated McLaren P1™ has a clear goal – to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and on track. To achieve this objective, McLaren is using all of its 50 years of racing experience and success, especially in the fields of aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fibre technology.
The result is a car that features technologies that have never before been applied to a road car, and enable the owner to drive the car to a race track, then press a button and race it.
The latest ‘ultimate’ car from McLaren also features IPAS (Instant Power Assist System) – with a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine coupled to a lightweight electric motor that produces more than double the power of the KERS unit used in Formula 1™. The McLaren P1™ was designed using the same aerodynamic systems and technology as a Formula 1 car, and through a bespoke system developed by technical partner Akebono, delivers braking performance a step ahead of any ‘supersports’ car sold today, featuring the same materials used on the Ariane space rocket programme.
