Now it's getting airy! The specialists from the company based in England lancer have removed the roof of the P1 and leave the super sports car with it Extreme Spider will. Presented to Festival of Speed ​​in Goodwood after a crazy racing version of the P1 GTR, the sports car specialist "for the streetSo now another extreme vehicle at the start. The idea resulted from a customer request. The P1 owner of the vehicle in the pictures wanted his McLaren as a convertible. However, should still be a foldable Emergency cover be integrated so that if it does rain, the interior of the P1 Spider is not damaged. The soft top is therefore always with you in the vehicle.

In cooperation with Paul Howse (was responsible for the design of the P1 at McLaren) there was an extremely difficult task to accomplish. So that missing roof can be compensated were elaborate Interventions in the carbon structure of the super sports car is unavoidable. Just cut off the roof and you're done, of course that's not possible. The MonoCage chassis became invisibly bulky from the outside reinforced and the area around the is completely new and designed entirely in carbon Engine cover. You can see people building up behind the two passengers air domes, which fall elegantly towards the rear and replace the factory central air intake on the roof with air ducts in the tips. In conjunction with a newly drawn Shed Cover additional cooling air is transported to the drive and a little more of the V8 can be seen.

no changes to the technology of the P1

You can also see small ones triangular window front and even the Door hinges as well as the front ones fender had to be adjusted. And also in the cabin something has happened. All finishes are UV resistant Materials covered to be better protected from the sun. On the other hand, there were no changes to the hybrid drive train and the other technology of the P1. In other words, the P1 as a Spider variant also has the 3,8-liter biturbo V8 installed in the rear in combination with an electric motor and generates impressive power 918 PS & 900 Nm torque. Incidentally, Lanzante should only build a maximum of the P1 Spider five vehicles.

approx. 6 months construction time

It remains to be seen whether of the only 439 P1 vehicles built by McLaren at a new price of around 1,1 million euros, four more will actually dare to convert. Incidentally, Lanzante also revealed what the modification to the Spider costs. The conversion time of approx. 6 months is still to come approx. 2,8 million euros, if there is no base vehicle yet. If, on the other hand, a P1 is already in the garage, the costs will of course be reduced accordingly. Incidentally, the five vehicles should be delivered by the end of 2023.
