The McLaren P1 went on the market for a cool million in 2014, and some early owners are now selling it for far more than that to people who just have to have the high-tech supercar.

But let’s say you don’t have a cool million. Let’s say you aren’t even gainfully employed. Let’s say you aren’t even finished with first grade!

Plus, maybe you’re six years old and a real proponent of electric cars. Now you won’t be left out when it comes to your McLaren dreams.

Yep, it’s an all-electric McLaren P1, complete with scissor doors. Here’s how McLaren described, in a statement:

McLaren Automotive has already revealed that one of the key strategies of its … business plan is the development of a Pure Electric Vehicle (or EV) to one day sit in its Ultimate Series. Meanwhile a Pure EV based on today’s McLaren P1 is now available but only to a limited group of potential customers … those under the age of six. At least that’s the official guidance.

The diminutive McLaren P1 differs from its larger brother in two important areas. Firstly, it has a central driving position, just like the iconic McLaren F1. Then secondly, the young will be able to experience what adults never could: an open-top McLaren P1. Yet cleverly the design still retains McLaren’s signature dihedral doors. And like every McLaren, its acceleration is startling. The zero to maximum speed dash takes just two seconds.

Check it out:


Here it is next to its big brother. It only comes in one color: Volcano Yellow. But it’s all McLaren. Except that it doesn’t have a 900-plus-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine working with a hybrid electric motor.

Up close. If you look really, really close, you might be able to make out some carbon fiber. Kidding!

And yes, it has the famous McLaren doors. Because what self-respecting six-year-old would accept anything less?
