The insane P1 will hit the market in just a matter of weeks. It was initially revealed at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, showcasing cutting edge technologies in aerodynamics, in-car gadgets, and of course complex hybrid energy sources.

Giving life to the P1 is a tweaked version of the MP4-12C’s 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8, paired with an electric motor system. The combined output is a whopping 674kW and 900Nm, which should be enough to see the sleek supercar dash from 0-100km/h in under 3.0 seconds.
