It has a maximum output of 903 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque.
This P1 was meticulously constructed using an exceptionally lightweight carbon fiber monocoque chassis that weighs only 199 pounds or 90 kg. The P1 was also given a lot of lightweight features like the carbon fiber body panels, ultra-thin glass, and carbon finishes.

Gloss carbon fiber was used for its bumpers, roof snorkel, door mirror and arms, side panels and ducts, rear wing, and rear clam insert.
