[Updated] 2013 McLaren P1 - Are these the official pictures? - They are!

Six new pictures of the McLaren P1 have showed up in a Russian website and are claimed to be the official images of the production version of the British supercar. While i cannot confirm this for now, the latest spy pictures of the P1 were from an yellow test mule.

So if this is really the production version of the P1 we already known almost everything about the car, since the drivetrain was revealed five days ago. For those who didn't read it here, it has a mid-mounted 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine (M838T) working together with an electric motor for a combined output power of 916PS (903bhp) and a maximum torque figure of 900Nm (664lb/ft).

The petrol engine produces 737PS (727bhp) at 7500rpm, and 720Nm of torque from 4000rpm, while the electric engine delivers 179PS (176 bhp) with 260Nm of torque being available from a standstill. They are both connected to a single dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox driving the rear wheels.

Update: Meanwhile McLaren revealed the following.

Zero to 100km/h will take less than 3 seconds, zero to 200 km/h under 7 seconds, and zero to 300 km/h will be achieved in no more than 17 seconds.  Putting that into perspective, that’s 5 seconds faster than the legendary McLaren F1 road car.  Top speed is electronically limited to 350 km/h.

McLaren has also announced that the car will cost from £866,000 on the road with a specification that fully equips the car for both road and track use.
There you have it, everything you need to know about the P1!
