McLaren has announced the first P1 has been delivered to its rightful owner so they are now able to confirm the supercar's performance figures.

Two weeks ago McLaren commenced production of its F1 successor and now the first car has been finished and sent to its proud owner who preferred a striking Volcano Yellow paintjob. The buyer took delivery of his prized automobile at the McLaren Technology Center, marking the beginning of a limited production series of 375 units.

McLaren has also disclosed final performance figures for the production-guise model which will do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in only 2.8 seconds. Hitting 124 mph (200 km/h) from a standstill will take 6.8 seconds while completing the 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) run will take 16.5 seconds. The P1 will do a standing quarter mile (400 meters) in 9.8 seconds at 152 mph (245 km/h) and is capable of reaching an electronically-limited speed of 217 mph (350 km/h).

To those of you who are curious about fuel consumption, McLaren says the P1 can return a combined 34 mpg UK (28.3 mpg US or 8.3 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions of 194 g/km. It needs 2.9 seconds and 30.2 meters (99 ft) to stop from 100 km/h and will stop to a standstill from 200 km/h in 4.5 seconds over a distance of 116 meters (380 ft). Stopping from 300 km/h takes 6.2 seconds and it's done in 246 meters (806 ft).

More details about the production process can be found in the press release area.
