McLaren P1 to be ‘race’ ready for the Geneva Motor Show

Posted on 7 Feb 2013 by Tim Brown

McLaren Automotive has confirmed that the global debut of the production-ready McLaren P1 will be at the 83rd International Motor Show in Geneva on Tuesday 5 March, 2013.

The company has also provided the first view inside the new McLaren P1 which features a race-inspired digital dash readout – see short video below.

The visuals demonstrate what the driver will see as the McLaren P1 transitions into a fully-focussed track car. On selecting Race mode, the large double element adjustable ‘active’ rear wing extends, and the pitch of the wing alters into an optimal aerodynamic position. In Race mode the screen includes a bank of lights across the top, which illuminate green, followed by red and finally blue. These act as a shift indicator, as in a Formula 1 car.

McLaren says more exact details about the McLaren P1, and Race mode, will be unveiled in the lead up to the Geneva launch.
