There’s one last chance for you get your hands on a McLaren P1.

Making its official production debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the McLaren P1 quickly sold out before 2013 was over, with all 375 units spoken for. But now, it appears that the British automaker will offer five more units to the general public as it rebuilds all five prototypes from scratch. That means the official tally of McLaren P1s sold will reach 380, although these five will be part of a limited edition series called “XP Carbon Series Red.”

Although the above photos aren’t the XP Carbon Series Red, it’ll be similar in that the final five P1 exotics will feature a carbon and red theme (see side). The bare carbon fiber exterior will be accented by red pinstripes on the front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirts, hood scoops and side mirrors. Finishing the exterior touches will be black wheels accented by a red inner lip.

On the inside, McLaren will pack in plenty of changes with carbon black Alcantara on the seats and door panels. The center section of the carbon black seats will also feature red constrast stitching and piping while the P1 logo will be finished in a bright red on the headrests.
