The P1 was powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged, eight-cylinder engine mated to an electric motor. Together, the car put out 903 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.

A whole host of carbon fiber helps the P1 maintain its svelte, sub-3,200-pound curb weight.

62 mph arrives in 2.8 seconds under full throttle, and the car has an max forward velocity of 217 mph. Nobody's tested how fast it goes in reverse.

The P1 features a Race Mode that lowers the car 2 inches, stiffens the suspension by 300 percent, and extends the car's massive rear wing. If you need downforce, this is how you get it.

The P1 can run solely on electric power, making it about 6 miles before its battery needs a recharge.

The P1's battery can be charged by the eight-cylinder engine, or owners can plug it into a wall, just like an ordinary plug-in hybrid.

Part of what keeps the weight down is the MonoCage, a carbon-fiber monocoque that weighs just 198 pounds. It's one of the lightest carbon-fiber monocoques used in the automotive industry.
