McLaren P1 launched in China, priced at 1.9 million USD
Published on April 1, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
The McLaren P1 supercar has been launched on the Chinese car market, priced at a manic 12 million yuan or 1.9 million USD. The P1 debuted yesterday, on a private viewing in the great beach-city of Sanya in Hainan. The McLaren supercar will now go on tour to the cities Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing and Chengdu for similar events.
Strangely, the McLaren MP4-12C has never been officially launched in China, leading to a wild gray market trade. Even more strange, McLaren’s official website still doesn’t show any dealers in China. Is this ‘P1-on-tour’ something gray again…? We will try, to find out.
[update!] the P1 in Sanya was a factory car, but the price is only an indication as McLaren doesn’t have any official dealers in China yet. China’s supercar collectors will have to wait a bit longer before they can order their P1… [/update]
