We are fairly certain that Jeremy Clarkson’s piece on McLaren P1 in the last week’s episode of Top Gear made you crave this car furiously. Clam down now, because we got some fresh footage of the P1 doing its thing at the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, and shooting some flames to make it all look more dramatic.
Come to think of it, this is not really going to cure your craving. This footage will only make you want more. That is a bad plan, because as you know, McLaren P1 is a super-expensive, super-rare hyper car, available only to a select few. Still, it may encourage you to work harder in hope that someday you’ll be able to buy one.
The blue stuff coming out of the P1’s exhaust is the result of unique sort of internal combustion operation executed inside the car’s 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine to extract maximum power from every drop of fuel. The petrol engine is helped in its quest by a large electric motor. Together, they make 903 horsepower, and enough torque to get you from 0 to 100 km/h in under three seconds.
