Should Mclaren Automotive sponsor Tavarish's flooded P1 rebuild?

The title says it all. What are your thoughts about the idea of Mclaren Automotive helping Tavarish to rebuild the flooded P1 to driving condition? It would be interesting to see if Freddy and Mclaren would team up to rebuild the P1...

Do you agree?

It looks like the engine from the flooded P1 is undamaged. Good to see that the salt water didn't get into the engines.

I only posted a pic of both of them when they worked on the 675. This is not the P1
Sorry for the confusion
I think it's safe to say Tavarish does own the car and we all know the only reason buying this car would be to bring it back to life... So 2023 should be an interesting year to watch the rebirth of a P1 unfold on YouTube....

Might even see both of your favorite McMedics getting involved along the way! :cool:

The P1 revival would be a first documented Youtube series project. BTW, has anyone done a similar Mclaren P1 revival project on Youtube? If not, Tavarish's P1 will certainly be a first of a long thrend of successful rebuild projects. If only Freddy can get his hands on a damaged Mclaren F1 to rebuild for his channel. That would be a epic if he can get a F1 to rebuild.

He doesn't have F1 money. Remember, a totalled F1 is still a $10 mil car.

The only way that Freddy can get $10 Mil to $20 Mil for a F1 is to invest $1 Mil into a single common Blue Chip stock like Microsoft, Apple, or Tesla for example. If he could hold that $1 Mil investment into Microsoft for 20 years, that investment might grow to $30 Mil. It's a crazy risk. But that's the only other way he could grow the funds to obtain a F1.

Would Freddy be crazy enough to invest $1 million into Microsoft or Apple common stock and leave the $$$ alone for 20 years?

What happens when they're then a $50 mil car?

It also depends on him having a spare $1m laying around to invest and forget about for 20 years.

He's going to get a head start when he finished the P1 and sells it for $3m.

Yes, truly insane and crazy risk to invest $1m into the most profitable company on the planet. LOL. Maybe he should go with something safer like GME or AMC, LOL.

Nobody buying F1's for $700k 20 years ago thought "maybe I should hold it in case they go up to $20 mil". A rebuilt title F1 won't go for less than $15 mil, no matter the miles.
He won't sell it.

True, but I can鈥檛 see the P1 equal to an F1.
Futur will tell鈥
The flood damaged P1 resurrection is HERE... see Supercar Garage ATL's video below

Was Tavarish able to get State Farm to change the title of the Mclaren P1 certification from Certificate of Destruction to a Salvage Title? Otherwise, he would not be allowed to rebuild the car as a road legal vehicle. It would not make sense to pay $575K on a car just to scrap her.

There is a plan in place, you can't change anything with a title at this point.
Little bit of the P1 in the beginning but you can skip to 15:41 for the main part
