There are only a handful of people in this world who have the opportunity of sitting behind the wheel of a McLaren P1 and putting it through the paces.
Motor Trend’s Ignition web series got the opportunity to be one of those few lucky ones, and as you can expect, host Carlos Lago went to town with the P1, stretching it in ways very few supercars in this world are capable of.
Featuring some of the most advanced technology in the industry, including those derived from Formula One , the P1 has indeed risen to the top of the pecking order as one of the best examples of a car that has put all its tools and characteristics in the right place, in line with McLaren’s goal for the exotic to become one of the best driver’s cars in the world.
To be honest, we didn’t need Lago to tell us the things that make the P1 awesome because quite frankly, all of us knows them already. But it surely doesn’t hurt watching Lago get a chance to take the P1 out for three laps of scintillating fun with McLaren’s newest crown jewel. One thing Lago did do for us is sneak off to a runway and show us how fast the P1 hits 60 mph and 100 mph, and how quick it can run the quarter-mile.
