McLaren P1 excels on ice

McLaren P1

McLaren is milking the launch of its P1 hypercar with great success. Already the car has premiered twice at the Paris (in concept form) and Geneva motor shows. And now, for our viewing pleasure, they’re showing a development mule being thrashed on a frozen lake in the Arctic Circle.

They say the P1 will be “the best driver’s car in the world on road and track.” To support that aim McLaren reckons the P1 will be the fastest ever production car around the Top Gear test track and it will be able to lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife in less than 7 minutes.

And, after watching this new video and its accompanying wallpaper-friendly images, we think you’ll agree the P1 actually looks half decent as well.

We’ll be seeing more of the P1 when at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (11–14 July). We just wish we were one of the lucky 375 folk to get their very own 916PS hybrid hypercar to play with.
