Sitting in the barber with Ranger 6c I heard a bit of a noise - difficult to tell whether it was chav turbo beast or something special....

What I saw passing the window was a disguised 'thing' which due to where I was could only mean one thing.



Oh, yes - the noise when I did get outside was a bit rough as he trickled along but under acceleration had a real bark to it.

I spotted this car a few months back, its been out and about on the roads for a long time.

Can't say I was too impressed with the engine note either!

I absolutely love the stance/wheels/arches ratio combination on the P1, it looks just about perfect in pictures and that confirms it, it also looks quite a bit smaller than I thought, but then so did the F1.

Amazing car the P1. Shame the entry level mpc12 or whatever its called looks so average by comparison. How the feck do people part with £200k or such an average piece of super car design. P1 by contrast is manga/F1/alien craft fusion!

Perhaps there are some people that value substance over bling. The actual engineering in the 12C is phenomenal.

Funny, I was just thinking when I first saw the photos - given the increasing obsession with individuality and bespoke custom options, I was wondering if anyone had ever actually specced a supercar to look like a camouflaged mule?! I don't know why anyone would but given some of the tarted-up monstrosities that have been allowed to leave factories, I guess anything's possible!
