With all due respect to all other supercars in the world, there’s nothing quite like seeing a McLaren P1 dressed in all black and rampaging around a world famous circuit like the Spa-Francorchamps track in Belgium.
That’s exactly the sight a hand full of people witnessed when McLaren decided to hold what looks a testing session or track day event at Spa. The P1 was even accompanied by a few other McLaren models out enjoying their time out on track. Even still, it’s the P1 that really got all the attention.
This video further confirms the P1 falls within the ranks of those vehicles that appear to be in motion while merely sitting still. Those swooping lines and curvacious body panels exude so much emotion and evoke such a spirit of speed. What’s more, the short film captures the P1 actually carving the track, proving that it’s just as at home on the circuit as it is inside a collector’s garage.
The P1 had some shaky twitches in the start, something we’ll pin as the driver’s responsibility, but overall, the car looked planted and totally controlled throughout its time on the track.
How it must feel like to get behind the wheel of one...
This 19-year old model named Riley Reid has the body to make computer screens melt. Likewise, the McLaren MP4-12C roars like a pristine supercar that’s ready to pounce on anyone daring enough to go up against it. Put these two combustible elements together and you have a pictorial that’s too hot for words.
To be clear, the photos of Reid posing with the MP4-12C aren’t photo-shopped, which means that posterior of hers is completely legitimate. Then there’s the McLaren supercar, which is now headed stateside, providing its American customers an opportunity to enjoy the 3.8-liter V8 bi-turbo aluminum engine it has. It’s got 600 horsepower on tap and 600 Nm of torque with a 0-62 mph time of just 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph.
We enjoy quality photos when we see them, and trust us, this spread of Riley Reid and the McLaren MP4-12C is one gallery you wouldn’t want to miss.
