That thing is pure car porn.

"As the P1 uses the MP4-12C's wheelbase and carbon tub, we can reasonably assume it employs some iteration of the 12C's 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 - no room for a V12, we suspect. So what does that mean for power? Well, we know the P1 has all manner of tricks to reduce weight - aluminium panels, lighter wheels and more - but we also know it uses a KERS system, which means it'll get a battery.

With heavy battery offsetting expensive lightweight materials, let's assume the P1 weighs the same as an MP4-12C: just over 1400kg. Which means, to achieve 600bhp per tonne, it'll have to make around 850bhp. If 100bhp of that is provided by the KERS, that means the V8 will need to generate about 750bhp. Hold on tight."
