Looks like Autocar got their hands on the Mclaren P1. Can't wait for the entire video.

Any idea why the Mclaren P1 is exclusively a LHD ? Mclaren is a British company and they are predominantly RHD manufacturers.

They're online making 375 cars and I guess more customers live in LHD countries. Doesn't really make sense to build a RHD version for a few cars.

Anyone catch the P1 on yesterday's TG?

Yes, and its nice. JC got to drive the P1 at Spa. And here is another review!

Chris Harris drives the P1 on Abu Dhabi roads following a few Hyundais and the Yas Marina track. The car is XP7, a testing protype for McLaren which has raked in the miles around the whole world.

The review is epic. There is Chris Goodwin to torque fill the technical details. (The F1 buffs will recall Goodwin from the excellent commentary he used give some seasons back). Its 30 mins and well worth it. Chris even switches the TC off and does power slides and says the 918 doesn't even come close.

Fun part! At 19:00 Watch a Captiva(?) going backwards while trying to overtake the P1.

I would have preferred Chris to do the review on an European track like JC' at Spa. But you can't get it all, can you? Enjoy!

Chris Harris and Chris Goodwin chat about the P1. No driving, just 2 blokes talking about P1 for about 30 odd minutes and you wouldn't feel the time pass by. The edited version of this has been used in the review video on top. Enjoy!

The P1 is a joy to watch taking corners, but when it comes to the grandeur of the exhaust note, it sounds like it’s behind its two main rivals from Ferrari and Porsche, both of which are a bit more raw. The P1 sounds like it already is in a computer game, kind of like the 4.4-liter V8 BMW engine that powers the current M5, M6 and the hot X5 and X6.[/FONT]

Video of a drag race between an Aventador and a P1 in Indonesia.



Tip: The fun starts at 3:45.

SPOILER ALERT(Yeah right, like the winner wasn't expected):

As the P1 whizzes by, then the Aventador passes by and sounds way better!
