The McLaren P1 is the long-awaited successor to the McLaren F1 supercar. Unveiled as a concept car in 2012, the McLaren P1's production form, which unusually looks almost exactly the same as the concept form, was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The production version sports LTR ducts in front of each of the front wheels to optimize downforce. Unlike most other McLaren cars, the P1's name is officially stylized as McLaren P1™, with a trademark symbol.
The P1 uses a 3.8L (3,799 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine called M838TQ. The twin turbos boost the petrol engine at 1.4 bar (20.3 psi) to deliver 727 hp (542 kW) at 7,500 rpm and 531 ft·lb (720 N·m) at 4,000 rpm. The first hybrid hypercar, the P1 contains an in-house-developed McLaren ECU electric motor producing 176 hp (131 kW) and 192 ft·lb (260 N·m), which gives the car a total output of 903 hp (673 kW) and 723 ft·lb (980 N·m). The electric motor is manually deployable or can be left in automatic mode, whereby the car's electronic control units "torque fill" the gaps in the V8's output, which is considered turbo lag, giving the powertrain an effective powerband of almost 7,000 rpm. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed McLaren SSG dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Power for the electric motor is stored in a 324-cell lithium-ion high-density battery pack located behind the passenger cabin, developed by Johnson Matthey Battery Systems. Charging the battery is possible through the engine or plug-in equipment and can finish in up to two hours. The P1 can operate under the petrol engine, electric motor, or hybrid mode (both petrol engine and electric motor activated at once).
The car has a dry weight of 3075 lb (1395 kg) and a curb weight of 3411 lb (1547 kg), putting the average weight as 3243 lb (1471 kg). The resulting power-to-weight ratio is a minimum of 584 hp per tonne (3.41 lb/1.54 kg per hp) and a maximum of 647 hp per tonne (3.78 lb/1.54 kg per hp).
The P1 uses Formula One-derived features like Instant Power Assist System (IPAS), which gives an instant acceleration boost via the electric motor, a Drag Reduction System (DRS), which operates the car's rear wing, and a KERS. Both IPAS and DRS have their dedicated switches on the steering wheel. The car generates 1323 lb (600 kg) of downforce at 160 mph (257 km/h) and has a drag coefficient of only 0.34.
The P1 accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.6 seconds, 124 mph (200 km/h) in 6.8 seconds, 186 mph (300 km/h) in 16.5 seconds, and 200 mph (322 km/h) in 23 seconds, making it a full 5.5 seconds faster than the McLaren F1. The P1 has an absolute delimited top speed of at least 245 mph (394 km/h). Tires are bespoke Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires and brakes are specially developed carbon ceramic brakes from Akebono.
In 2015, a track-tuned version, the McLaren P1™ GTR, was released. The following year, the McLaren P1™ GTR received a 5-unit, street-legal version, named the McLaren P1™ LM.
Asphalt 8: Airborne
The McLaren P1 was added in The Great Wall Update as a mid Class A car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1470
- MAX rank: 1611 (+141)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1698 (+87)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +33
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 228
- Upgrade rank percentages: 2/55/2/41
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
The McLaren P1's performance is based on that of the McLaren 12C Spider: decent acceleration, high top speed, sharp and responsive handling, and high nitro efficiency.
The P1 has a very high top speed stat given its rank, topping out at 246.9 mph (397.5 km/h) at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. The P1 has a maximum total speed of 281.9 mph (454.0 km/h).
The P1 has the ability to clear corners effectively thanks to having responsive handling and sharp drifting. Sometimes, the handling can become stiff, especially at MAX+PRO, although this can be rectified with practice and skill.
The McLaren P1 can achieve faster lap times than the Ferrari LaFerrari, which only has the edge in acceleration and handling. The Falcon F7 and McLaren MP4/8 are however capable of better performance at lower ranks, especially with the latter's extreme acceleration and handling.
The McLaren P1 is generally considered one of the best go-to cars in Class A due to having a high performance-to-price ratio. The P1 has multiple strengths, including having a Credits-farming-suitable track in Season 9: Beyond where the player can make 4,900 in less than 58 seconds of racing, low price compared to similarly-ranked Class A cars, and dominating several Class A Events. This is the go-to car until the player can get higher-ranked cars like the McLaren 675LT and/or McLaren Mercedes MP4-25.
In Multiplayer, while the P1 has excellent all-around performance, it is actually very risky to use the car at MAX+PRO, as more often than not, especially as of the Multiplayer League Update, there is a high chance of being pitted against cars ranked at least 100 rank points higher or lower. In terms of Multiplayer-friendly upgrade configurations, the Ferrari LaFerrari has the advantage (even if slight), although it is not recommended due to the Lotus Evora Sport 410, Aston Martin Vulcan, and Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport being capable of having a much higher total speed at a similar or lower rank.
The P1 also counts towards the Glimpse Into the Future, Extra Horses, Britain's Finest" and McLaren collections. A total of 8 Class S free upgrades, 12 Extra Tanks and 1,500,000 are awarded when all 8 versions are completed.
The McLaren P1 currently costs 3,200 to purchase, replacing the 2,100 purchase option in the Fast Lane Update which replaced the 475,000 purchase option on March 31, 2018.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,435,000 while Pro Kits require 477,600, 18 of each Class A Part, 12 Early & Initial Techs each, 24 Mid-Techs, and 12 Advanced Techs and 28 Hybrid Engines.
Now correctly named as the McLaren P1™ (with the trademark symbol), it appears in Asphalt Nitro as a Class S car and performs identically to its Asphalt 8: Airborne rendition.
Asphalt Street Storm Racing
The McLaren P1™ appears as a Class S car with the following statistics:
- Starting Rank: 561
- BHP: 903.00
- Grip: 11.50
- Acceleration: 2.45 / 2.37
- Weight: 1,5347.00 / 3,410.51
Obtaining the P1™ requires 10 of its Blueprints.

Asphalt 9: Legends
The McLaren P1™ appears again as a mid Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,446 ( 35)
- rank: 2,579
- rank: 2,759 ( 13)
- rank: 2,980 ( 15)
- rank: 3,279 ( 24)
- rank: 3,602 ( 36)
Players who logged in for a limited time from March 20, 2020, were given 35 BPs for the McLaren P1™—enough to unlock the car—as part of a special gift "in this trying time" that also included 35 Dodge Viper ACR and 30 Ferrari F12tdf BPs.
Similar to its Asphalt 8 rendition, the P1 is one of the best Class A cars with its well-rounded stats. It can compete with the VLF Force 1 V10, Ferrari LaFerrari, and mid-ranked Aston Martin Vulcans. The only shortcoming is its low top speed when compared to the SCG 003S, Porsche 918, and Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 SV. What it lacks in speed, it makes up for in nitro efficiency, allowing it to sometimes pass the faster cars when they run out of nitro.
