McLaren P1 revealed
The waiting is (nearly) over
The P1 sets out its stall quite simply: to be the best driver's car in the world. Not just on the road either, but on the track too.
"Twenty years ago, we raised the supercar performance bar with the F1," says Exec Chairman Ron Dennis. "Our goal with the McLaren P1 is to redefine it once again."
"Our aim is not necessarily to be the fastest in absolute top speed but to be the quickest and most rewarding series production car on a circuit," says MD Antony Sheriff.
Comparisons to the F1 will be inevitable, but that was a product of its time well over a decade ago. This will be heavier and it will be full of electronics, but that's a given for almost anything built by a 'proper' manufacturer these days.
