McLaren P1 production begins

The long march from concept to production vehicle is reaching the home stretch for the surely impressive McLaren P1 supercar. McLaren has dropped a very cool gallery of images on its official Facebook page, showing the P1 production floor in its meticulously sparkling operation. The old line about a floor being clean enough to eat off of looks to be literally true in this 'factory.'

We've already seen enough of the P1 to get properly juiced about its impending arrival as a production car. Testing the supercar's 900-plus-horsepower, gasoline/electric hybrid drivetrain in the deserts of America's Southwest being quite adequate as a means of whetting our appetites for a first drive of this beast.

Between now and that happy day, slake your McLaren thirst with a browse of the P1 production line in our gallery above.
