Former Formula One driver and 2009 World Champion is parting with his beloved McLaren P1. This particular McLaren P1 was ordered by Button with a McLaren Special Operations Grauschwartz Grey paint scheme along with optional Stealth Pack. It also had an MSO grey/black alcantara interior. Apart from the unique and stunning grey paint exterior, Jenson’s P1 also consist of forged wheels and bright yellow brake calipers. Some may brand it as not the brightest but is certainly one of the most sophisticated P1s out there.
What makes this McLaren P1 even more special is the optional ‘Track Mode 2’ system. This system is a bespoke software option offered by MSO for an additional £20,000 and it allows for a road legal version of ‘Track Mode’. No one knew that this system existed until now and there is a strong chance that it is the only example equipped with this feature. There are several other options available that comes straight from the factory. Options include Meridian Sound System, Vehicle Tracking System, front and rear parking sensors, and Cadmium Yellow contrast stitching.
Jenson Button took on Instagram to break the news of selling his McLaren P1. He reasoned that he is now staying in United States and doesn’t have time to drive this amazing vehicle. To satisfy his McLaren needs, he has 675LT Spider in Los Angeles to fulfil his desires. He owned McLaren for many years, but still odometer on it reads just 550 miles. The asking price of McLaren P1 is £1.6 million which is not much. Powering McLaren P1 is twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine which is paired with an electric motor that offers an output of 903hp. With the help of seven-speed transmission, the power is transferred to the rear wheels.
