Video: McLaren P1 Breaks Down at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este

Now this is a little embarrassing, wouldn’t you say?

The McLaren P1 was supposed to be the crown jewel of the British automaker; a testament to the ingenuity of the company and manifested in a finely chiseled package.

Well, that was the prevaling thought, at least until the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este when the McLaren P1 mysteriously conked out at the most inopportune of time.

Whoops.

In this video captured by Marchettino, you can see McLaren engineers frantically trying to get the P1 up and running. The exercise, unfortunately, proved to be futile and McLaren was left with little recourse but to tow up in a truck and presumably send it back to Woking.

You can even look a little closer and you might notice that a BMW engineer went in and helped push the car into the where it was going to get craned back inside a trailer.

Talk about getting egg splattered all over your face.
