Chris Harris video: McLaren P1


Chris has already written quite a lot on the McLaren P1 - read his in-depth review here - but here's what you've no doubt been waiting for. The vid.

Grabs like the one above should offer some clue as to what you're in for but by now you're probably done with words and ready for action. Without further ado...

Enjoy the vid.

    Flames on the over-run I've seen before. Unburnt fuel meets hot exhaust pipe. Old news.

    But blue flames on the throttle? I know it has a different V12 in it but what's an Aventador doing differently?

    Means it's more oxygenated combustion, I've seen others do it, Aventador has IIRC.
    The 12C does it too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5X2mRF-h8g

    Blue short flames close to the tip, orange longer flames. If it's controlled (not wasteful fuel burning) it's limited to the short blue flame, yes? No?

    Better not watch any vids of the 918 at work then.
