McLaren toys with electric power

THE first ever all-electric McLaren is set to go on sale in October priced at only £375!

It will blast to its maximum speed from standstill in a mere two seconds but there's just one snag that top speed is just 3mph.

The ride-on, electric McLaren P1 is the first officially licensed product from McLaren Automotive to enter the growing market for supercar look-alike mini-motors. Ideally, says the company, customers should be between three and six years old to drive it, although young drivers beyond this age group might also fit.

The car surges into life via a one-button stop/start function automatically activating the lights and ‘air-conditioning' unit. An MP3 player and audio system is standard and, helpfully, already pre-programmed with every popular nursery rhyme. It also features a reverse gear in addition to its three speed, forward transmission. Handy if you've arrived at the wrong playground.

In a contrast to McLaren's usual policy of offering limitless colour and trim combinations, this time the choice for the busy six year old is made easy with only one colour on offer: Volcano Yellow.

It will be available from the end of October first from selected McLaren dealers around the world, followed by recognised global toy retailers.
