McLaren P1 (2012)
Fittingly described by a contemporary journalist as ‘a superhero amongst supercars’ the P1 is certainly one of the most important McLaren road cars produced to date. Just 375 examples of the 903 brake horsepower combustion engine/hybrid powered P1 were produced and they were subsequently sold out within a month. Thought to be the successor to the McLaren F1, the P1 shares the same mid-engine, rear wheel drive concept with a carbon fibre monocoque inspired by Formula One design. However, the P1 does not share the same three-seater layout as the F1.
The design mantra for the P1, which is powered through a combination of a 3.8 litre V8 engine producing 727 brake horsepower and an electric motor producing 177 brake horsepower, is all about necessity. All extraneous weight has been removed from both engineering and design elements and aero considerations are paramount. As McLaren P1 Design Director, Frank Stephenson said, ‘the engineering priority was always unmatched aerodynamic performance. My role as a designer was to make it look dramatic and beautiful. I wanted it to look like a purposeful racer with that low body, long rear deck and open-mesh rear styling to put the mechanicals on view and help cooling. Plus there’s the most aggressive rear diffuser ever seen on a road car. Like everything on the McLaren P1, it’s there for a good reason.'
This fine 1:8 scale model of the McLaren P1 has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using detailed colour and material specifications, and original CAD data supplied directly from the drawing office of McLaren. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:8 scale model is supplied in a luxury black presentation box and mounted on a carbon fibre or leather base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The model title, original branding and edition number are displayed on polished stainless steel plaques mounted at the front end of the base.
