Since the McLaren P1’s official debut at the Geneva Auto Show, American supercar fans have been clamoring to get a taste of the F1-bred plug-in hybrid, which will make its US debut at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours D’elegance.
A company spokesman confirmed as much to AutoGuide at a private event today. While McLaren made headlines at last year’s Pebble Beach with the outrageous one-off X1 model, the British company will once again try to steal the show with it’s LaFerrari-fighting P1 supercar.
The numbers still amaze: the combination of a twin-turbo V8 motor and a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) and electric engine make a stunning 903-hp, which help blast the P1 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds, and up to 120 mph in 7 seconds. The sprint to 190 mph comes quickly as well, taking just 17 seconds.

Top speed is limited to 217 mph, and the car is also capable of running about 12 miles solely on electric power. McLaren is limiting production of the P1 to just 375 examples, each one costing about $1.15 million.
There’s no doubt that the P1 will look right at home at Pebble Beach, which runs in August this year.
