Lanzante Teased With McLaren P1 Spider, Only Five Units Will Be Made
June 24, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News
Even though McLaren stopped making the P1 in December 2015, here we are, almost seven years later, with word of a new version. It does, however, originate in Lanzante rather than Working. However, Paul Howse and the British engineering company collaborated to create the P1 Spider. If you haven’t heard of him, he was intimately engaged in creating one of the Holy Trinity’s three members.
Buttresses Made Of Carbon Fibre Will Be Added To The Open-Top Hypercar
Since the Spider is primarily a modification based on an existing vehicle, the open-top variant does not constitute a continuation of P1 manufacturing.
Only five will ever undergo the transformation, which includes carbon fiber buttresses with specially created air intakes. Since the original hypercar featured a roof scoop, which is obviously no longer the case, these were required.
The P1 Spider’s glass roof panels are now gone, but Lanzante has designed a retractable roof cover in case the owner wants to continue driving the car in the rain. To preserve the original’s flowing lines as much as possible, the front wings, doors, and engine cover have all been subtly altered. The two turbochargers are fed directly by those aerodynamically enhanced buttresses that we described before. To maintain the structural stiffness of the typical automobile, the bottom portion of the chassis has been altered.
By replacing the seats’ leather upholstery, Lanzante has also modernized the interior. Also available is something dubbed SuperFabric, which is more weather and UV resistant now that the cabin is outside. The final touches include glossy black switchgear and carbon fiber embellishments with a satin finish.
The McLaren P1 Spider kept the original car’s formidable hybrid configuration despite being softened on the opening day of the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It has 900 Newton-meters (664 pound-feet) of torque and 903 horsepower. The coupe’s highest speed was 217 mph (350 km/h), and it reached 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 6.8 seconds. Performance numbers have not been released.
Before the year is over, Lanzante promises to deliver the first droptop P1.
