McLaren P1 undergoing final testing, first deliveries to begin soon [video]

McLaren has released the first footage of the production-intent P1 without camouflage.

In the clip, the highly-anticipated supercar is shown undergoing final testing in Arizona, California and Nevada. While temperatures exceeded 126°F (52°C), McLaren says they have worked closely with their technical partners to "develop and engineer bespoke products and solutions for a car that challenges what has been produced previously, redefining the boundaries for high performance cars."

As a refresher, the P1 has a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine and an electronic motor that develops 179 HP (132 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. This enables the supercar to have a combined maximum output of 916 HP (674 kW) and 663 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque which allows it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than three seconds and hit an electronically-limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

The first McLaren P1 deliveries are scheduled to occur in the coming weeks and the model is reportedly reaching sellout status.
