Official: McLaren P1 is sold out

Filed under: Coupe, Hybrid, Performance, Luxury, McLaren

The McLaren P1 has sold out ahead of schedule.

McLaren has hyped its plug-in hybrid P1 supercar since long before the production version was unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, and apparently all the hype has paid off. Top Gear reports that, shortly after its release, all 375 P1s are “accounted for,” meaning they’ve been bought or secured with a deposit. We reached out to McLaren to confirm the news, and a company spokesperson told us the report is true. It’s hard to act surprised with this one, despite the car’s $1.15-million price tag.

However, the spokesperson says the growing waiting list is still open in case any buyers must cancel their order.

The spokesperson also says that 12 P1s have been built thus far, which are either already in possession of their owners or en route to them. At this stage, no North America-bound P1s have been completed – all 12 will be based in Europe.

“We set ourselves the target to be sold out by year-end off the back of first cars being delivered to customers in September [2013], the fiftieth anniversary of McLaren’s founding,” McLaren told Top Gear. “A combination of the first feedback from customers and Top Gear’s review of the P1 has seen us cross the line a little sooner than we had planned.”

If you still want a hybrid supercar – one that isn’t sold out – there’s always the LaFerrari or the Porsche 918 Spyder, the latter of which is a relative bargain, starting at $845,000.
