The Holy Trinity

In the name of the P1, the 918 and the holy LaFerrari. It’s the video we’d all been waiting for. After a bit over two weeks it’s racked up more than 1.2 million views. It’s Chris Harris in three of the most desirable cars ever made. At almost one hour long the recipe couldn’t get […]

MSO reveals Prost-inspired McLaren P1

// Posted in McLaren

We’re going to start this post with a little rant. Such is the aura and legend of “the great” Ayrton Senna that you could be forgiven for not knowing that a little bloke by the name of Alain Prost won three of his four world championships with McLaren. “Oh did Allan Prost drive for McLaren […]

VIDEO: McLaren F1 v McLaren P1

The mighty McLaren F1 in a road test against the even mightier McLaren P1. Or is it? In some respects the end result doesn’t matter too much. For one thing you’d take either, or both, if you could. And secondly, the fun is in finding out which one is best, don’t you think? Thank you […]

McLaren P1 v LaFerrari v 918 Spyder

Meet Paul Bailey. He’s from the UK and owns a McLaren P1, a LaFerrari and a Porsche 918 Spyder. What a bastard! In this video Bailey drives his P1 to pick up his new LaFerrari. Not content with taking delivery of one car for the day he shoots straight off to Porsche to collect his […]

This is the McLaren P1 GTR and as long as your arse is pointing to the ground you will want one! The hybrid powertrain of the track-only P1 GTR produces a combined power output of 1000PS (735kW) and has been significantly uprated.

VIDEO: McLaren P1 v Porsche 918 Spyder

It’s the McLaren P1 versus the Porsche 918 Spyder. It’s Evo. It’s Angelsey. This needs no further introduction. Suffice to say, like Jethro, I’d be prepared to sell my soul. And I suspect you would too.

McLaren P1 GTR continues development

// Posted in McLaren

I want to buy a McLaren P1 GTR. And so do you! How could you not? The car itself will be almost impossible to describe, so good and so fast will it be. But the whole driver programme that is attached to P1 GTR ownership is a boys’ own adventure on steroids. There’s a video […]

McLaren P1 v Porsche 918 v Ducati 1199

Here’s a video shootout that’ll have you salivating. Autocar runs the fearsome McLaren P1 up against the amazing Porsche 918 Spyder. And for good measure they bring a Ducati 1199 along for a few laughs. Remember, it’s the superbike which gives its engine to the funky Volkswagen XL Sport. Of course, there is a lot […]

McLaren P1 GTR design concept revealed

// Posted in McLaren

Mention the name McLaren F1 and most car nuts go wobbly at the knees. Add the letters GTR, to make the McLaren F1 GTR, and we turn into a blubbering mess of admiration and awe. It really was that good. Well, the F1 GTR will soon have a successor: the P1 GTR. At this stage […]

VIDEO: Three days with the McLaren P1

Steve Sutcliffe from Autocar is really showing off now. Already he has spent time behind the wheel of the McLaren P1 and now he’s back for a second helping. A helping which lasted three full days and took in public roads, Castle Combe, an empty air strip and the MIRA test facility. It is very […]

VIDEO: Harris and Goodwin talk McLaren P1

The start of last week’s Drive video on the McLaren P1 began with Chris Harris chatting casually about the car with Chris Godwin. Sure there were no smoking tyres or screaming V8 sounds, but it was still just as entertaining. This week Drive has given us another 28 minutes of P1, this time it’s just […]
