The starting price is only for the. 01%-ers

If you ever needed a reason to strive for higher education or winning the lottery, the McLaren P1 is it. McLaren Automotive has gone official offering up all the details on its latest supercar, and the beast is impressive. McLaren promises that the P1 will hit 186 mph in less than 17 seconds, making it 23% faster than the legendary F1. The car has an electronically limited top speed of "only" 217 mph.
The automaker also notes that the production version of the P1 is virtually unchanged from the original design study. As you can imagine with any supercar, this beast is exceptionally far from affordable. McLaren says pricing will start at £866,000.

We have already talked a bit about the P1 in the past so you should already know that the car has a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and the electric motor/battery system for a combined for 903 BHP. The Instant Power Assist System is a race-inspired technology that adds an additional power to help acceleration allowing the P1 to reach 62 mph in under 3 seconds. The car will eclipse 124 mph in less than 7 seconds. McLaren says that in electric-only mode, the vehicle can operate up to 30 mph with a range of 12 miles.
McLaren also promises that the P1 has the suspension and braking capability for the racetrack with braking performance on par with a GT3 sports racing car.

McLaren notes that it will only produce 375 of these vehicles to keep them rare. There are a number of color and trim alternatives that the customer can choose from including visible carbon fiber in the cabin. McLaren also points out that the car is completely customizable (depending on how big your wallet is) via McLaren Special Operations.

Celsius would be the most logical explanation. At 0 water freezes, 100 water boils.

At sea level and Not where i live.

Not sure what the issue is i use both systems when needed not a big deal. I can estimate distance in meters or yards convert pounds to kilos no need to prefer one system over the other...its because in America we are free to choose which system of measurement we want to use.

It's not an issue, it's just another nitpick anti-American people parrot.

The Fahrenheit scale is based on a completely stupid mixture of brine as seen here

The point is having two systems is ludicrous. In America you are free to do many things, it doesn't have anything to do with making stupid decisions.
