McLaren is preparing to introduce the P1 concept at the Paris Motor Show, but our spies have snapped new photos of the production model.

Caught alongside a Porsche 918 Spyder, the prototype is heavily influenced by the concept and features a ventilated hood, an aggressive rear diffuser and a massive exhaust system. We can also see high-performance brakes and a low-slung silhouette.

We'll likely learn performance specifications tomorrow, but previous reports have indicated the car will feature a 3.8-liter V8 engine and a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) for a combined maximum output of 963 hp (718 kW). This could enable the car to accelerate from 0-100 km in 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed of approximately 384 km/h (239 mph).
