at that time I really tired when I fly more than 12 hours, so I just take a shower and forget bath, after that go to bed very quickly.

MTC isn't just a factory and much like a temple for me, so this factory tour just like pilgrimage, after nearly seven months since I take a order with McLaren Frankfurt Dorr automotive, Finally my Volcano Red 12C coupe arrival Dalian Port of China last month, now I have wait Customs officer to check how much tax I have to pay, may be I can drive it after two weeks.

Love the perspective of the UK from a different angle and looks like you were a kid in a sweet shop at the MTC/MPC (and rightly).

Was that a customer P1 being built?

I'd be surprised if it were a customer P1, they said that production will start from July 8.

Did you notice the painted rear wings and some of the side panels in the first few pictures?

Gentspy, fantastic article and photos! Can you please clarify what the 6:33:26 lap time is since you were the one to first publish the photo? Thanks. :)

http://club.autohome.com.cn/bbs/thread-c-2293-21440495-1.html this article I wrote in the 2nd April which is P1 first show in china, I did ask Jamie Weir (Client Lianson Manager - McLaren P1) about lap speed, he just confirm P1 is 6 seconds faster than a 12C GT3 round the Catalunya racetrack, about Nordschleife, he said some reason such as low temperatures make poor resistance tire grip so they will do test at summer time, after that you will know the result, that is all I know about P1 lap speed, my english is very poor right now so there are a barrier when I talking with someone speaking English, I am very shame that because I was graduated from UK, since I graduated over 11 years I haven no chance to speak English, and almost forget most English words. hope u guys all understand what I say.

Gentspy,

Are you based in China?
How is McLaren doing there so far?

What's the interest in the 12C like?

^ Awesome, Andy! :)
By the way, the Nurburgring lap time photo isn't included in there! For some reason, I have a feeling that it will be very close to that time. If it really is 6 seconds faster than the 12C GT3 around the Circuit de Catalunya, then lapping the Nordschleife in 6:40 or under shouldn't be impossible.

its got same downforce, same braking, bit more power, bit more weight and perhaps most importantly more torque...I agree shouldn't be too far off the scale even if its a tough ask, but amazing if they do..
