Never before has Formula One technology been so integrated into the design and performance of a road car. The McLaren P1 touts a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) and Drag Reduction System (DRS), both enabled by buttons on the steering wheel. Practical application of KERS gives the P1 176 additional horsepower that can be tapped to boost speed, increase overall output, or solely power the car up to 12 miles before needing to charge. This isn’t a car anyone is going to hyper-mile for a little savings at the pump, but it is a hybrid nonetheless. Coupled with 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged, V8, horsepower numbers exceed 900 with torque above 660 lb. ft. A seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission carries the P1 up to a stratospheric top speed of 217 mph. To bring the P1 back down to Earth, carbon-fiber braking by Akebono is precise. When given a chance to drive the P1, Formula One driver Sergio Perez said, “When I first touch the brake it really feels like stopping a Formula One.” So, your McLaren P1 should feel right at home taking on any cars that dare attempt to challenge it.
— Official description [1]

The 2013 McLaren P1 is a RWD hybrid hypercar by McLaren featured in Forza Motorsport 5 and all subsequent titles.

Synopsis

The McLaren P1 (short for "Position 1", motorsport term for "first place") is the successor to the 1993 introduced McLaren F1. It is designated as McLaren's second model in its "Ultimate Series" model range, with the first model being the F1. The P1 was manufactured from 2013 to 2015 in a limited production run of 375 units.[2] A third model in the Ultimate Series debuted in 2018 with the track-focused McLaren Senna.

Designed as a plug-in hybrid hypercar, the P1 is powered by the twin-turbocharged 3.8 liter 'M838TQ' V8 engine, a variation of the M838T engine that debuted with the MP4-12C. Working in conjuction with an electric motor that delivers torque during the build-up of the turbochargers, the entire powertrain produces 903 hp (673 kW) and 664 ft·lb (900 N·m) of torque in total. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The aero-efficient body along with an active rear wing and flat underbody allow the P1 to produce 1322 lb (600 kg) of downforce at 160 mph (257 km/h) in Race mode. The P1 uses airbrakes instead of heavier traditional hydraulic brakes and carbon ceramic brake calipers for maximum stopping power. The braking system can also charge the battery of the electric motor by directing waste energy into it.[3]

Performance

With a top speed of at least 250 mph (402 km/h), the P1 is one of the fastest cars in the Forza series. Requiring 2.8 seconds for 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) and 5.2 seconds for 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h), the P1 very quickly picks up in speed from a standstill or corner exits thanks to tight gear ratios, although it is also prone to a fair amount of wheelspin with the traction control off.

As a light rear-wheel drive car, the P1 offers well-rounded handling for quick cornering. High-speed stability is ensured by an aero-efficient body, while the braking performance is aided by the deployed rear wing to increase air resistance.

The P1 is closely matched to the LaFerrari despite weighing 265 lb (120 kg) more, but loses against the AWD Porsche 918 Spyder in terms of acceleration, which in turn has a lower top speed than both aforementioned cars.

Upgraded

Due to the P1's tight gearing, it can benefit greatly from a top speed-oriented setup that exploits wider gearing to increase top speed to 295 mph (474 km/h).

Trivia

  • The P1 comes with only Volcano Orange and Volcano Yellow as manufacturer colors, despite the large amount of colors the car can use in real life.[4]
  • The mirrors are permanently carbon fiber black and cannot be recolored, despite some real life examples of the car having differently colored mirrors.[5]
  • The active rear wing works differently in the games than in real life. It always stays up, even when the car is standing still. The wing also tilts to a 0° angle at 140 mph (225 km/h) and stays permanently up, even at speeds of over 230 mph (370 km/h). Another example of this is when the player enters a Festival Hub in Forza Horizon 3 in the P1, the wing automatically retracts. However, in Forzavista, the wing can be deployed and retracted.
  • Its electric motor was later used in the Formula E SRT_01E electric formula race car.

Game-specific

  • There are multiple achievements related to the P1 in the Forza series:
  • In Forza Horizon 3, the P1's front bumper, carbon fiber exterior door inserts on the sides, rear engine cover, and rear bumper cannot be painted with any decals at all.
  • Pre-release screenshots and videos of Forza Motorsport 5 depict a P1 with different hood vents (pictured in Gallery below).
