Some say that the McLaren P1 may become the best road car ever made (actually that's a quote from McLaren themselves). For me it's an absolutely stunning design, and yet another dream garage candidate.

In this video Jay Leno who already has a vast dream garage has a nose around the McLaren factory, and then goes for a blast around the Top Gear track in one. He's ordered one...

Badman,

Theres one lives on Hambleton peninsula, and another thats in Pinchbeck. The one from Pinchbeck can often be seen near Crowland as thats where he works. His son James is head of the McLaren specialist team that sells and fits "Extras" to the cars. Pictured below is one that James brought up for the day last December. He told me that the air intake scoop on the roof is a £165K extra!!!... :nailbiting:

We did ask if it's also available in white!

Just found out that McLaren are now looking to do a track only version, in a similar scheme to the Ferrari XX.

"The model is set to have even more extreme bodywork to differentiate it from a 'standard' P1, alongside suspension upgrades that will see the P1 permanently 'locked' in its lowest setting, and more power and torque liberated from the petrol-electric hybrid drivetrain.

McLaren is likely to keep the P1 Tracks on behalf of the owners and arrange a series of track days and events throughout the year where the cars can run."
