McLaren has hyped its plug-in hybrid P1 supercar since long before the production version was unveiled at this year's Geneva Motor Show, and apparently all the hype has paid off. Top Gear reports that, shortly after its release, all 375 P1s are "accounted for," meaning they've been bought or secured with a deposit. We reached out to McLaren to confirm the news, and a company spokesperson told us the report is true. It's hard to act surprised with this one, despite the car's $1.15-million price tag.

However, the spokesperson says the growing waiting list is still open in case any buyers must cancel their order.

The spokesperson also says that 12 P1s have been built thus far, which are either already in possession of their owners or en route to them. At this stage, no North America-bound P1s have been completed - all 12 will be based in Europe.

"We set ourselves the target to be sold out by year-end off the back of first cars being delivered to customers in September [2013], the fiftieth anniversary of McLaren's founding," McLaren told Top Gear. "A combination of the first feedback from customers and Top Gear's review of the P1 has seen us cross the line a little sooner than we had planned."

If you still want a hybrid supercar - one that isn't sold out - there's always the LaFerrari or the Porsche 918 Spyder, the latter of which is a relative bargain, starting at $845,000.

        A millionaire musician singing / complaining about not having enough money, those lyrics really tugged at my heartstrings.

      The growth in the luxury supercar market and the quick pace at which the total production of this car sold out just highlights that we're living in a second gilded age, where vast amounts of wealth are held by a few select group of individuals.

        But if these few are spending it on a car means McLaren employees get paid and eventually McLaren will make a new or improved version of the car, e.g. a lot of new technology will be develeoped and eventually benefit everyone of us.

          To an extent... this car is mostly hand made with very intricate and precise components that take an extensive amount of time to manufacture; unfortunately, we'll never see that sort of technology trickle down to us plebeians due to the very reason @xtabay1 pointed out :( Whatever though, be happy with what you got and try to improve if you want. I still think it's an amazing car!

        Yes. There 1% have plenty of money to throw around, no doubt about that. Assets used to be assessed in the millions, now it's billions. What's a billion here or billion there these days.

      No one person should have over $999,000,000 + 1 million dollars (i.e. 1 billion dollars) because at the end of the day we are ALL just bones in a grave. Some have that 10x over or more and for what? It can't buy immortality, only deeds that contribute to the betterment of humanity can do that. Bill Gates gets it!

      I'm going to guess about 40 percent of these are Dealers. So you Millionaires and Billionaires will still have a chance to be first on the Block with one. With 12 Built and off to customers hands. Who else sees a eBay Ad coming soon.

        I think you're a little confused with the proper use of a period.

      Fantastic news. McLaren has done an amazing job creating an automobile division in only 2 short years that can basically rival any car on the market in the world. So much credit for this must go to Ron Denis for his drive, determination and talent. My only hope is that McLaren and Cosworth join together for the ultimate engine in the ultimate exotic cars.
