Following a teaser video, McLaren today reveals the first shots of the P1’s interior ahead of the car’s Geneva Motor Show Debut. Inspired by fighter jets, the P1’s cabin has a minimalist design with most of the parts left exposed without any extra garnish.

The obsession with weight saving is so deep that McLaren has used no interior sound deadening and there is not carpet either. There are some lightweight mats available as an option if you really can’t live without it.

Just like the 12C, you get a steering wheel modeled on that of the Formula 1 cars, finished in Alcantara with carbon fiber inserts. Carbon trims are found in abundance almost everywhere you look, which is nothing groundbreaking, until you find out it is actually non-lacquered carbon which looks more natural and saves about 1.5 kg!

There aren’t that many switches and dial on the dashboard, but fortunately McLaren hasn’t skimped on equipment, and you get full climate control, satellite navigation and a bespoke sound system, developed from the outset with Meridian. There is also a digital dashboard with Race mode.

The P1 is not going to be a comfortable car and McLaren is not ashamed of admitting it. The racing bucket seats are made of ultra-thin carbon fiber and have the minimum amount of foam. As a result they weigh 10.5kg each. Just like the Ferrari F150, the seats are fixed to ensure you won’t be messing with weight distribution, although they can set them at 28 or 32 degrees in the factory. You also get six-point race harnesses and a place to put your racing helmet.

Not to be rude, but Ron Dennis should really get tested for OCD!
