McLaren finalizes P1 production

McLaren has revealed P1 production has come to an end after the assembly of the 375th and final car. When production of the model started in the summer of 2013, all the units were already pre-sold and according to company no two cars are the same as each was tailored to the customer’s specifications. Assembling one car required 17 days of work from 105 people and the build time stood at around 800 hours. In the paint shop, the P1 required from 5 to 8 liters of base coat color along with about 8 to 9 liters of lacquer. In some cases, completing the paint job required as much as 5 days.
