Power Trip: McLaren P1 LM is an extreme speed machine

McLaren2_eff

Hold on to your hats. The McLaren P1 LM is street legal, but just barely. British auto company Lanzante Motorsports modified the beast to get it ready for the road, but still kept its nearly 1,000-horsepower twin-turbo V8 hybrid engine intact.

Anyone gutsy enough to get behind the wheel of this whip will quickly see that it feels very much like a racecar. This baby can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 2.4 seconds – just enough time to wonder if your will and testament has been sorted out.

When the P1 LM debuted last year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England, it became the fastest street-legal car to finish the hill climb since the festival started timing the event back in 2014. It took Swedish racing champion Kenny Brack just 47.07 seconds to conquer the 1.86-kilometre track. According to Lanzante, the P1 LM is “the quickest, rarest and last of the P1 variants.” No kidding.

The P1 LM is also a finely crafted, sleek specimen of steel. It features premium materials like gold plating in the engine bay and a fully exposed carbon fibre roof. On top of that, the steering wheel, seat inserts and door pulls are all trimmed in Alcantara. The colour comes in both grey and orange, but don’t agonise over your decision just yet. There are only six P1 LMs in the world, at a cost of US$3.7 million (HK$28.8 million).
