Well, it took him a while but YouTube’s official authority in in-depth car tours and review, SaabKyle, has finally added a McLaren P1 to his collection. As always, the SK treatment includes a complete tour of the car inside and out, as well as under the hood and bonnet, plus samples of exhaust noise and the function of every knob and switch. You can’t really get closer to the P1 unless you are standing right in front of it.
Saabk’s McLaren P1 review completes his hyper car trio videos as he’s already done the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918. His collection also includes the Koenigsegg CCX and the Bugatti Chiron, to name but a couple of the more interesting items on the menu.
McLaren P1 Highlights:
-Aero-led design produces more downforce than any other production road car
-916PS (903 hp) generated by 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine coupled to an electric motor gives tremendous power and instant throttle response with an electronically limited top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph)
-Active ride height, and aerodynamics work with large adjustable rear wing to give ground effect suction and optimised downforce
-IPAS (Instant Power Assist System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System) offer instant boost of power and straight-line speed
-The MonoCage is one of the lightest carbon fibre full-body structures used in any road car to date, weighing 90kg. This weight includes the roof and lower structures, roof snorkel, engine air intake cavity, battery and power electronics housing
-MonoCage chassis includes fibres more than five times the strength of the best grade titanium, and includes the use of Kevlar
-0 to 300 km/h in less than 17 seconds – five seconds quicker than the legendary McLaren F1
