I only got a bit of advanced warning on this Miami event which enabled me to scan Twitter/Instagram as it was happening. Unfortunately I don't know what their plans are for a world tour with P1. In my extremely unofficial role as McLaren's web ambassador I only get fed enough details to look smart in brief snippets.
I'm sure there is plenty of interest in your part of the world and that you won't be neglected. It might have to wait until after they get through Geneva though?
Straight from Ron Dennis's mouth....."The P1 will be the fastest production car in the world......"
The car looks insane in person. Photos do not do it justice.
The inside is sick as well.
Car will be 2850+/- pounds.
3.8 L with larger Turbos and KERS which will make up for any turbo lag.
Plus a few more secrets to come....
Nice to hear another confirmation of the weight. 12C's dry weight with lightweight options is 2868 lbs, so they've done some impressive work to add KERS and probably more electronics/cabling and still keep it that light. Can't wait to hear the rest of the details!
p.s. I heard NYC around Dec 19th, I think. Hopefully that is still in the plan.
Thanks for sharing those details - the excitement for P1 is non-stop here and I can't wait to see it again. Thrilled that you were given a peek at the interior as well - I expected since all the photos showed it closed up like it was in Paris, that this would not be the case.
They need to find a way to operate the wing via remote if they haven't already as the character of the car changes quite a bit with it elevated.
This might be a stupid question but why haven't they showed the interior yet?
I hope it's as nice as the 12c's. I really think they nailed it on that car. To my eye, it's much more tastefully done then the 458. It's a perfect modern interpretation of the F1s'. It'll still look modern in years to come.
