McLaren P1 is the prized possession of only 375 owners around the world. And it turned surprising when found out an owner had converted it into a taxi. That’s what the pictures from Taiwan say at least. But the reality is its owner had just placed the ‘taxi board’ on roof for a photo shoot, which stunned many likeminded like us. However, the Volcano Yellow shade has actually contributed the most for its taxi image with that board.
However, if one’s imagination still insists of getting the P1 in the cab fleet, then it may become the fastest option in the business. All at the cost of space crunch that customers will suffer due to 120L luggage space and two seats fitted inside the cabin, which means one is for the passenger and another for driver.
Thus, P1 is a hybrid car and brings power to the steering from a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine, and an electric motor. Solely, the engine sends max power of 727bhp and 719 Nm of torque, whereas the motor sends out 176bhp and 260Nm. When combined, both of them make whopping 903bhp and 978Nm, after mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
Hence, if the board placed on the rooftop was made to serve the purpose, then many would have thronged to get their ride of a lifetime in a car that basically costs no lesser than US$1,350,000.
